SuckSqueezeBangBlow spent the morning mucking in with the logistics team at the Chelsea Auto Legends press day at the Royal Hospital. What better way can there be to start a spring morning than wheeling a GT40, an Aston Martin Le Mans racer, a feather-touch fragile Maserati and a variety of other precious exotica across perfectly manicured lawns, the scent of bacon on the breeze and the clink of Champagne glasses tantalising the workers?
As the press breezed in, the cars lay in wait beneath their covers, to be unveiled after the official briefing. The atmosphere was cheery, the surroundings gorgeous, the selection of cars sublime.
The pictures below offer a taster - stay tuned to SSBB in the coming days to see a few of these cars profiled in more depth. Oh, and you'll be impressed to learn that SuckSqueezeBangBlow managed to walk straight into Jodie Kidd coming through a doorway. Smooth.
