2004 Classic Car Shows

2004 shows

Tatton Park Classic Car Show, August 21/22

The weather forecast threatened rain for Sunday, but for once Tatton stayed fine, with a nice sunny day for both Saturday and Sunday. My car was on the Viva Owners Club stand - must get around to joining the club, thanks to Deon for letting me join the others.

A fair turnout on Saturday was bettered on Sunday with a full stand including my HPF, Les's red Magnum coupe, and an immaculate Brabham HB Viva. Two prizes cameto the VOC stand over the weekend. The photo shows the stand early on Sunday, before it got busier.

Nantwich Festival of Transport, August 14/15

A nice weekend for this new show, the rain stayed off despite some grey clouds on Saturday giving way to a bright sunny day on Sunday. A wide range of vehicles attended this show, including classic cars, trucks, motorcycles, American vehicles and more.

Both days saw a cavalcade of vehicles through the town, with those on Saturday being limited to eight cars so as not to cause congestion. This is only the second Nantwich Festival and it is already shaping up into a popular local show.

Sandbach Festival of Transport, April 18th

A reasonable start to the year, although a little dull with some light rain during the morning, Sandbach was well-attended with vehicles ranging from classic cars and motorcycles to trucks and buses, with a few steam traction engines thrown in for good measure. The cavalcade through the town featured those braver than myself displaying their vehicles to the large crowd that this event attracts.

The photo shows the variety of vehicles just in the static display area of this show. It wasn't until it was leaving that I noticed just how close the registration number on this Mini was to that of Barry Carter's HPF, elsewhere on this page. Coincidence, or what?
