TIME TRAVEL 37 features the N.A,S,C. Nationals held at Bruntingthorpe in 1988. Unlike previous Time Travel D.V.D.s this was originally filmed on video so the sound track has been left as it came out the camera. This was the 14th N.A.S.C. Nationals and the biggest so far but sadly the last to be held at the popular Bruntingthorpe venue as local residents curtailed any further activities there. Most of the D.V.D. includes film of cruising up and down the spacious airfield runways. If you were there you’re probably on it and there’s also some film of the drag racing. Since the mid 80’s there had been a growing interest in 40’s and 50’s style hot rods which had caused quite a bit of press in the rodding magazines both in the U.K. and America, some good some bad. A comment had been made that these cars made up only 1% of the U.K. scene so at Bruntingthorpe all the Low Flyers had “the growing 1%” on the back of their cars...

TIME TRAVEL 85 takes a third look at Ian and Julie Armstrong’s video footage… The NASC held their annual ‘Nationals’ for four years at Bruntingthorpe. Believed by many as the best place for a Hot Rodding event with vast expanses of road networks ideal for non-stop cruisin’ parking up for a show ‘n’ shine and drag racing (both organized and not so organized) This dvd features action from the 1987 event… If you were there you’re probably on it!!!
