CLASSIC WHEELS EVENT 2013

Including exhibitors, over 500 visitors attended the Museum’s ‘Classic Wheels’ event on Sunday 9th June.  After a great deal of skilful manoeuvring, over 60 classic vehicles were accommodated in our car park, the arena for the day, and much pleasure was derived from examining them and chatting to their owners.  Car bonnets were opened and detailed technical discussions ensued amongst enthusiasts, whilst others simply admired the lines of the beautiful vehicles of yesteryear.  Visitors and owners alike picnicked alongside.

A vintage Southdown double-decker bus not only provided a nostalgic reminder of public transport of bygone days, but also the useful function of transporting people to and from the visitors’ car parking area.  Helicopter rides were enjoyed by visitors keen to view proceedings from the air and the afternoon featured a spirited flying display featuring by a North American Harvard – itself a classic – operated by the Boultbee Flying Academy .

The judges had great difficulty in choosing the winning vehicles.  After considerable deliberation, the award for the Best Classic Car went to Michael Hayward and his 1934 Alvis Speed 20 and the Best Military Vehicle award to Brian Jarvis and his Daimler Ferret, whilst the Visitors’ Choice of Vehicle went to Graham Rouse and his 1938 Jaguar SS100.  Appropriate certificates were presented to the winners by Dudley Hooley, the Museum’s Director.
