FORMER TV Wheeler Dealers mechanic Edd China met Beaulieu’s Spring Autojumble show-goers this weekend.

Edd was at the New Forest event where he launched and signed copies of his new book Grease Junkie - A book of moving parts, which tells his life story.

Visitors were able to meet the presenter and wacky motoring inventor and talk to him about his remarkable career and off-the-wall projects.

Edd’s incredible motorised shed, road-legal bathroom suite and a taxed and MoT’d double bed were recently stars of Beaulieu’s Wacky Record Breakers exhibition.

Spring Autojumble took place over the weekend, and saw bargain hunters scour more than 1,000 stands packed with classic car parts, motoring literature and automobilia bargains.

More features included the Mini 60 display, which will put one of Britain’s greatest classics in the spotlight with a timeline of every major milestone in the classic Mini’s lifespan from 1959 to 2000.

Event sponsor Practical Classics joined the Mini celebration by bringing its own project car, a 1968 Austin Mini estate that has been off the road for more than 40 years.

Another automotive star of the Practical Classics stand was the 1959 Standard Ten Gold Star that was saved from destruction in Ford’s scrappage scheme.

This low-mileage family saloon, known as Bluebell, captured the hearts of thousands of classic car enthusiasts who joined a campaign to overturn its destruction order.

Newly returned to the road, the car made its Beaulieu debut at the show.

The Dorset branch of the Morris Minor Owners’ Club returned to the show with its popular display MoggyFest, while the Morgan Sports Car Club and Wessex Car Club both showcased an impressive selection of members’ vehicles.

On Sunday, enthusiasts enjoyed Beaulieu’s Land Rover Rummage as everything Land Rover-related was bought, bartered, swapped and sold in a section of the show dedicated to Britain’s favourite 4x4.
