Bristol Classic Car Show
Report on the Bristol Classic Car Show
The Bristol group had three cars on display at the Bristol Classic Car Show at Shepton Mallet. We had Ron Fishlocks Big 9, Alan Lewis' Basic 8,and John Garrods Little 9 rolling chassis/ bodyshell partway through restoration.
Saturday and Sunday were very busy with all three cars attracting a lot of attention. Quite a few membership forms were handed out and two new members signed up. The sunshine also brought out many visiting classic cars, with several hundred parked outside, especially on Sunday. Monday was fairly quiet and we were all fairly relieved when the time came to pack up and head for home, although my long suffering V4 probably wondered what it had done to deserve being treated as a van and loaded up with the stand equipment.
My thanks must go to Bob and Val Richardson for all their help and the car owners who all went to considerable effort to make their cars available. Special mention should be made of the fact that John Garrod and Ron Fishlock also manned the stand for all three days.
