There are a surprising number of classic cars in Barbados (quite impressive considering the corrosive sea air and terrible roads), and we went along to one of the regular shows this weekend.
There were some beautiful cars on display, from as far back as the 1940s, but I must admit to getting most excited about seeing the cars of my childhood, from the late ’70s and early ’80s. The Capri, RS Escorts, and best of all, the Austin Allegro! I’ve not seen an Allegro for decades, and Barbados is the last place I would expect to find one.
The car shows are held fairly regularly, and worth keeping an eye out for if you fancy something a bit different away from the beach.
