Images of the 2015 Rally:  Following our birthday party at the Rally of The Giants this year the Pre50AAC is now officially 50 years old.  The two day Rally gave us one fine day and one rather wet, but of course in a field full of amazing cars nothing can dampen an American car enthusiast.  

Images of the 2014 Rally:  What a super day at the 48th Rally of the Giants at Blenheim Palace.  The great cars, warm sunny weather and big crowds really do make this the BEST AMERICAN CAR SHOW IN THE UK.

Images of the 2013 Rally:  Fine weather, great atmosphere and a huge turnout at

Blenheim Place made this one of the best Giants ever.

Images of the 2012 Rally:  In July 2012 on its first visit to Blenheim Palace the Rally of the Giants was as huge a success as ever. With hundreds of classic American cars on site, Pre50 club members, their families and all visitors to Blenheim had a super day.

Rally of the Giants

Blenheim Palace

Saturday and Sunday 9 & 10th July 2016

With well over 400 classic American vehicles attending (including some of the finest and most valuable examples to be found anywhere in Europe) dating from the early 1920's, the Rally of the Giants is the must-visit event for anyone with an interest and passion for American motorcars, trucks, military vehicles and bikes.

Collectors from all over the UK and many parts of continental Europe gather to celebrate in a laid-back, family-friendly atmosphere; to admire, to dream, to buy, to sell and just to have a really great time!

Pre-entry for show vehicles is now closed, but you can still get to the show by purchasing a Blenheim Palace Park & Gardens ticket on the day.

If you have any questions please call David Radcliffe-Watts.  His details are on the Contact Page.

We look forward to seeing you there on the 9th and 10th July 2016.
