Aldham Olde Tyme Rallye 2006

This years Aldham Old Tyme Rally was hot and dry, which makes a change as it is normally cold and wet, especially when it is time to pack up on Sunday so this was a nice change

Once again there were a large number of exhibitors and a large Military presence including some huge trucks. Sunday saw what may be a record number of Vintage and Classic Cars and Motorbikes.

The auction on Saturday afternoon had an enormous number of lots although nothing took my fancy however there were one or two good buys to be had on the Rally Field.

We all had an enjoyable and relaxing weekend despite the hot weather, once again our hosts the North East Essex Tractor & Engine Club were very well organised for which we were grateful.

 There was a good variety of engines with one or two unusual ones, here are some of the sites around the Rally Field.
