The Rally of the Giants
Saturday and Sunday 25 & 26th July 2015
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.
On Saturday we met at Blenheim Palace for a friendly get together before assembling into a line of over 60 cars for a super cruise out to the Bicester Heritage Centre. In the evening back at Blenheim Palace, and inside a huge circle of cars, we had a great party with the excellent Polka Dots until way after dark.
The Rally on Sunday was surprisingly well attended. There were cars from Belgium, France and Sweden. Plenty of roadsters were brave enough to make the trip in the rain, and it did give the convertible owners an opportunity to show us what their cars look like with the tops up for a change. As ever the prize winners were all truly stunning cars.
With what might be called a Classics of the Future theme, one of the current American manufacturers (if you weren't there you have to guess who that could be) came along on Sunday with a couple of their latest models. They were very impressive.

50 years of the Pre50:
The Pre50AAC has produced a 100 page collector’s book illustrated with great photos and articles which tells the story of the first fifty years of the club and the Rally of the Giants.
The 2016 Rally of The Giants will be at Blenheim Palace on 9th & 10th July.
