As I had stated in my previous post, the weather was uncertain and I was having second thoughts about attending the show today. Yes I did go and yes it did rain and yes, very hard for about 1.1/2 hours from 1.30 pm to 3 pm. Then things cleared up and the show continued. There were approximately six import cars in my class and no I didn’t win the “Best Import” Because of the rain not many people turned up to view the cars so peoples choice ballots were few. No! I didn’t win the peoples choice either. I was about to leave as there was only a couple of trophies left, it was a long drive home. Imagine my surprise, as I turned to leave my name was called!!!!. I had won the Mayors Choice!!!. Actually, not my first time, I won the same award in Montague around 1986 also with a Rover. That leads me to conclude that Mayors must have good taste in classic cars. The Rover has always been considered one of Britain’s Finest Cars. Over the years it has been the choice of Monarchs, Prime Ministers, Heads of State, and a wee Irishman from Ebenezer!!!
Cheers and keep reading.
