T U C K E D at British Motor Museum
Written By: Tenyo Barbolski
If we compare cars to everything else in our daily life, they can be just another ordinary object, a topic with which our thoughts are occupied. There is nothing different about them compared to video games, sports, fashion events or lifestyle.
Like all these things they can also be very dangerous because we are the ones who turn them into dangerous tools when used unwisely. However, at the same time, it is also the moment when they could be that link that unites people, that allows us to remove all boundaries and differences between us with one goal - to celebrate together something that we all love and gives us a sense of freedom and sublimity. Tucked is exactly the kind of show where it doesn't matter what you drive, whether it's made for drag racing, drifting or just enjoying the view from your car, how it stands in that very attractive and sexy position.
So the day of the show came, I got up at 3 am because I had to pick up a friend who was going to be the show marshal and his car was pretty damaged after being in an accident. But that's what friends are for, to support and praise each other, even more so when they share the same passion for cars. I would even say that early driving on English roads is very pleasant when there is no traffic.
Here we are, around 6:30 am we were already there. The British Motor Museum seemed such a peaceful and deserted place, especially looking at the empty car park. But who would have suspected what this place would become in the next two hours?
After leaving him, we went to look for a cafe to get another coffee to be ready for the day to enjoy one hundred per cent. returning half an hour later the place was no longer what it had been showing us the stillness of the night and how everything around had hushed in the embrace of sleep. With the breaking of the dawn and the new day, this place was ready to welcome and celebrate a celebration of stance culture. The queue of cars participating in the event, as well as the caravans of various commercial companies, began to grow vigorously.
It could have been considered a celebration of the automotive community and culture at UC. For my partner, it was a great pleasure to enjoy with me the huge variety of coupes, engines, and sound, but above all their looks and distinctive individual style of each car. In many of them, you could see not only the generally accepted traditional low stance, forcing engines that sounded extremely good, or the very sound of pops and bangs from the exhausts creating such a pleasure for the ears. And the combination between sound and vision was simply unique.
As the hour wore on, the main parking lot was almost full, and the vendors and their assistants were hard at work getting their booths ready in the most brilliant way to be ready in time to greet prospective customers with a smile, and there were sure to be plenty of them. , the day promised it. And then we were struck by how the marshals coordinated some of the cars to park on a nearby hill, but not only there.
As we had taken a dead-end position in the parking lot that I knew to be uninhabited from my personal experience at the Reunion Show last year, I had no idea what to expect. Gradually, cars were sent to the park in that particular show way - at an angle in our parking area. And people were getting out of their cars and everyone was trying hard and fast to wipe the last traces of dust or dirt from their cars to make them look properly glamorous and stylish. But it was also a reason to meet up with old friends, or just to see people with whom you spent a weekly pleasant time together and enjoy the show together.
By the time we feel around us, this deserted parking lot is filled with an unusually large number of cars, and there are almost no seats left for spectators. And suddenly my friend came and told me to park in a corner, then it was very clear that the event was going to be huge and the day to be remembered. After re-parking my car this allowed us to see the unique Nissan Silvia owned and driven by Miss Westby herself.
The time came and we went out and I prepared my camera and all the accessories that I would need during the day. That moment has come for camera, action, pictures…
Cars parked at a corner as if for a show, owners busily scrubbing every detail to add shine and style surrounded us from all sides, Even on the nearby hill the noise was huge. And gradually we went down to enjoy the car festival which brought together people from all parts of England. The euphoria was at its maximum, the thrill was felt everywhere, and the music was on 6.
You can't help but feel a little admiration and respect for the efforts and work of the owners presenting from shocking to indescribably unique cars! To be able to preserve and maintain these creations of the human species in such condition, especially given the age of some of the cars is of such skill and dedication that deserves a great deal of respect indeed! And the parade didn't end, neither did the variety of cars.
On our way, we could meet from new models to those who would be called our peers in age, And they all shone with unique class and detail down to the last bolt! Naturally, the presence of Japanese cars was quite strong and strong, as we all know the stan culture originates from Japan, which can be said to be the birthplace of car culture these days!
Even as we stepped into the threshold of the British Motor Museum we felt that thrill floating in the air in rhythm with the event! And indeed, even the museum managed to surprise us with the exhibition of special cars in the closed section on the second floor. We were able to enjoy quite a few German models that, regardless of age, looked divine emphasizing their uniqueness. There was no lack of models such as the Mazda Rx-7, Ford Focus ST, BMW E36 and many others...
During our tour, we enjoyed the PTRLHDNSM.VRLD booth, we got to say hello to Ciro, Mr. Petrolheadonism We got to see him on stage introducing another popular figure in the automotive scene – Helen Stanley. Later, we saw them with Miss Westby keenly appraising and commenting on the various builds. We had the opportunity to enjoy the unique builds of @s77kco with his unique Porsche Cayman 981, we also did not miss seeing @g20bag with his stunning LBWK Ferrari F430, the only one in the whole of Europe. These two builds in particular looked unique. And naturally, they were pretty much the top sensation for the show, deservedly so!
But along with seeing many familiar faces, exchanging contacts and having nice small talk we also had time to watch the stunning little show prepared by Petrolheadonism and his colleagues, namely Burn Out Battle. Naturally, there was also an opponent who, due to his small skills, not only failed at the beginning but also managed to slightly damage the stage. This caused the show to be delayed by about an hour or so.
Despite everything we, along with many others, kept this hour in our minds so as not to miss the spectacle. And it was worth the wait, the cars that participated didn't disappoint the audience, nor the photographers who fought to get a better position for better photos. You can see some of my photos from the event, I think I didn't do too bad…
Despite everything all day, the crowds of people were like a swarm of bees in a honeycomb, everywhere was swarming with people, and the ready-food vendors were happy with the long queues that were there all day. Except when they reached a point where their items were running low and they couldn't properly serve their customers.
A unique day that was like a fairy tale in the motoring world of England. It was an event that deserved its due fame and respect from an awful lot of people! And it lives up to the expectations of even the most capricious viewers! But alas it was not without incident during that time, but we can only be thankful that they did not happen on the grounds of the British Motor Museum and the show we had the pleasure of witnessing. Alas, like after any car show, most owners try to show off who's driving or drifting skills, who's how loud their car is, or how fast...but this happens in the uncontrollable environment of the street, in real life outside the walls of the show. And in such an environment, no one makes the rules except the rules of the road that apply to us all.
But also because of the large number of fans who stood around the traffic lights and dividing fences after the exit from the museum, this gave rise to both pride and pain and disappointment. Alas, one of the participants overestimated his skills in a real situation, with which he managed to seriously injure his car, his pride, and a traffic light, as well as, alas, slightly hit several of the spectators, who escaped with only bruises.
This once again showed that this is contrary to the whole friendly and respectful car culture in UK. because those who call themselves professional drivers knew that risks are taken in special places for the purpose - tracks where everything is controlled and the lives of others are safe. But thanks to the fact that it did not happen behind the doors of the museum and the show, we will still keep the pleasant memories and emotions of that day! I hope the photo series can bring you back to those moments!
