Classic Wheels Enthusiasts Defy The Elements

On Sunday September 23rd over 60 classic cars and military vehicles plus their owners defied the elements to attend the Classic Wheels event at Tangmere Military Aviation Museum.  The array and variety of vehicles was impressive with some quite rare examples included.  Amongst those ‘spotted’ were a 1927 Bugatti Type 37, a Shelby Cobra, a Dolorean, and an AC ME2000 plus several Alfa Romeos and Triumphs.  The American ‘classics’ included Cadillacs, a Pontiac, a Corvette and a Ford ‘Mustang’ – plus countless others too numerous to list.  The prize for Best Classic Car in Show went to a beautifully presented Jaguar 3.8 Mkll.  The military vehicles included two impressively large Dodge Weapons carriers, Humbers (one of which was judged the Best Military Vehicle in Show) and Weapons Carriers. Prizes comprised a certificate and print of the ‘Mynarski’ Memorial Lancaster by our Museum artist, Harry Bennett.

The unfortunate weather prevented full appreciation of such a magnificent collection of vehicles, but both owners and visitors appeared to enjoy the occasion.
