Tredegar Park Show Report
STANDARDS AT THE TREDEGAR PARK SHOW -
This was the first show for 2 years, having been held continuously for 24 years prior to last year when it had to make way for the National Eisteddfod.
We had a stand in quite a good location, next to one of the main walkways, with quite a lot of interest being shown in our cars by members of the public. Unfortunately we did not sign up any new members.
We had a small, but select, display of 5 cars, Ron and Margaret Walters and family with their Triumph Roadster and 1938 Flying 10, Alan Lewis and his son with their 1955 basic 8, Steve Smelzer’s 1927 V4 and our Selby Tourer. Steve was kind enough to bring along the Bristol Group’s banner and bunting so we were able to decorate the stand nicely.
There was plenty to see and do at the show and there was even some "proper" autojumble which makes a change. Hopefully it will not be killed off by impending legislation. For us the highlight of the show was Alan and son manhandling a large stationary engine pump into the boot of their 8. It’s amazing what can be got through the rear doors. Regretably photographs were not permitted.
