Continued from Part 1:
Lord Montagu arriving
Despite the rain, at 3.30pm we were delighted to greet Lord Montagu, who was driven from the house by Darrell Cunningham in a Standard Flying Eight Tourer. By this time the winners of the six classes had been identified and were collected together for his Lordship's inspection. Also, we had assembled the prizes and all the day's participants under the canopy outside the museum itself so that we could all be in a dry place for the presentations. Having made his decision, Lord Montagu made the first presentation to the car of the Show, the Flying 8 belonging to Geoff Cattermoul, pictured above.
Geoff Cattermoul also won the Best Postwar Standard 8 prize
Winner of the Best Other Standard 1903-
Winner of the Prize for the Best 50's Eight and Ten was Peter Lockley
Winner of the best Non Standard entry was Mr Banister in his MG VA
Winner of the Best Standard Triumph award was the TR2 owned by Peter Cathie

Despite the atrocious weather, everyone seemed to have a good time! When will summer arrive? The Club owes Darrell Cunningham a great debt of gratitude for organising such a good show at such a prestigious venue.
We returned to the Holiday Inn for our second night's stay.
