Plumpton Classic Car Show

No posts on here for a while. A wet Monday provides the perfect excuse… that and I should be wiring! On Sunday 24th August I went to a new car show in it’s second year organised by a ford100e.com member. Taking place in the grounds of Plumpton College attendance suffered because of the clash with wings ad wheels but some interesting cars turned up. I hope that they don’t get put off and run again next year but with a date that doesn’t clash with such a big event.

This car will feature throughout. I will say no more than that it’s the car I drew every time I had paper from age 5 to 15. Want!

Fords were probably most heavily represented, but there was a wide mix;

Mini’s were next in quantity. This rather nice monti replica caught my eye;

I hadn’t seen one of these in years. An Opel Manta. There was a rotten one around where I grew up but nothing like as clean as this one.

And in with all these modern cars there was a genuine WW2 service vehicle. A doctors car from Yorkshire still with all it’s paperwork and a really nice car.

And my trusty pop that got me there and scared life out of me by having total black out on way home.
