The St Patrick's Shows
Whilst the main Bristol Custom Car show was held at the Exhibition Show, the Renegades held a local annual show at St Patrick's school in Blackswarth Road Redfield. It ran as a joint venture between the Renegades and the school to raise money for their funds.

There were entrants from far afield in those days with a lot more people into rods and customs in the 70s and 80s. We even had a Volvo F89 truck on display one year.. In the photos you will see Mike Taylors then fresh Devon, the same car and still wearing the same paint is now owned by Nervous Nick (NSRA Gasser editor). Tim Pratt who owned 'Hot and Bothered', and Jeff Clements with his iconic T "Lil Henry".

The photos span a few years so some owners had different cars as time progressed. The school is still present, but part of the field has now been built upon.
