This one is definitely on my bucket list. Awesome way to step back in time, but I will go one better.

Chopped Rod and Custom - Chopped Rod and Custom

Absolute chaos and pretty much anything goes. Old time, old school mayhem.

Goodwood & Pendine Beach in Wales (similar to TROG) would be great events to go to in the UK. Pendine was last weekend.

TROG, Bonneville & the Rodders Revival in Maryland are my US too do's.

Chopped is ballistic by any measure. Just held on a farm in central Victoria. Everything is policed by entrants, so as long as you not being a dick & pissing people off, do as you please. If you are, there's no shortage of cool cats who will set you straight.

How could you miss something this cool so close. I would definitely make an effort next year if you get the chance. Most call it low tech, but to me it's no tech - nothing made later than the 50's pretty much.

Cool shit, I like how they featured the kegs in opening scenes. If u want chaos and mayhem, I recommend the Baja 500.

I was at Goodwood FOS a couple of weekends ago....I try to go every other year....havent been to the Revival festival yet though....

The FOS is definitely a great June day or weekend out....great to see and hear cars and bikes of all types and ages....and they have plenty of food and drink to accommodate all classes of society....

I highly recommend the FOS....

I went on Saturday this year, so i missed the Rossi mayhem on the Sunday....

Never heard of this. It looks excellent - it's like something out of Motorstorm. So is this...

https://youtu.be/VDFV4L-WuMI

It started as the Weston Enduro in the early eighties, now pulls massive crowds. I've tried to experience as many historic events in the U.K. as I can over the years...such as Shelsley Walsh and Oliver's Mount but there are so many annual, traditional, well known and lesser known race events that I have always wanted to see around the world. As Jum says, Baja is definitely one of them, but also Paeroa, Pikes Peak Hill climb, the Indy mile, Macau and would love to do Suzuka eight hour.
