wheels13 (115)Another glorious night in the heart of Warwickshire for the annual Coventry & Warwicks Motor Club summer gathering, Wheels. There was a wide array of cars, some dubious in terms of their classic quality, but the ones that appealed to us were the 60’s and 70’s cars and the American muscle cars on display.
