2010 Classic Car Shows

2010 shows

Gawsworth Hall - May 3rd

A brisk day gave way to a short hail shower at lunchtime, but generally a good turnout and an enjoyable day. The journey home produced an impromptu convoy of related vehciles, led by me in the Firenza, Mick Blakemore and his wife in Mk2 Lotus Cortina and Mk1 Escort Mexico, with Classic and Sportscar magazines David Evans bring up the rear in his BMW 2002. Managed to stick together all the way to Crewe where the traffic split us up.

Cholmondeley Castle - May 9th

On the stand with our local club, the South Cheshire Collectors Car Club and a pretty good turnout of cars.

Weaver Wander - May 22nd

This event is in two sections - a road run, and a static show. I attended the static show in lovely sun, with the vehicles from the road run joining in from around 3pm.

Tatton Park - June 5th and 6th

A joint stand with the Vauxhall Viva Owners club saw a pair of Firenzas on Saturday, and down to just the one on Sunday. Weather was again very nice, though there was some quite heavy rain overnight on Saturday which wasn't so good for those camping at the site.

Trentham Gardens - June 20th

A new exhibitors entrance caused havoc with both the local traffic and those attending the show, hopefully this will be dealt with before next years show. The sun was out all day, and a few familiar faces were seen. Clashing with Audlem Festival of Transport didn't help numbers, though, so hopefully the dates won't clash next year.

Elephant - July 11th

Another successful show for the South Cheshire Collectors Car Club with many invited guests and live entertainment.

Cholmondeley Pageant of Power - July 17th/18th

Weather let us down a little, but a good turnout of SCCCC club members along with DSG and VVOC cars brought plenty of people to talk to. As always the pageant was great entertainment, perhaps a little smaller field of entries than last year.

Nantwich Festival of Transport - July 25th

Nice warm sunny day for this show which seems to get busier every year.

Tatton Park - August 21/22

Plenty of cars on our joint stand with the DSG and VVOC, including a selection of HS and HSR Chevettes.

Cholmondeley Castle - September 5th

A good turnout with eight or nine club cars attending, the autojumble was a little more sparse than in previous years.
