HUNDREDS of autojumblers jostled for the best finds as they packed Beaulieu’s 23rd Spring Autojumble in spite of the weather.
As many as 14,735 event-goers visited the show, an unmissable highlight of the classic events calendar, in the Beaulieu parkland last weekend. The number of stands was up to 1,236 from 1,176 last year, including 48 club stands.
Saturday’s rain gave way to sunshine for Sunday as enthusiasts hunted down bargains and elusive spares, to barter, buy and swap everything automotive. As well as parts for cars, commercial vehicles and motorcycles dating as far back as the veteran era were books, models, tools, automobilia and oddities such as a fairground cat-face dodgem and even a model camel. The wide variety of motoring miscellany once again proved that if you can’t find it at Beaulieu, it probably doesn’t exist.
Beaulieu events manager, Judith Maddox, said: “We were delighted to have even more stands this year and to have so many wonderful comments about how much people enjoyed themselves. There was a lovely atmosphere and everyone was glad to see the sun on Sunday.”
