Some on a leisurely Sunday afternoon drive spotted the line up, enticing them to call by for a closer look.
American vintage Chevrolets and Fords of the 1920’s took us back to the early days of production line automobile manufacturing. American cars of the 60s and 70s whooped of the era of big is beautiful and cheap petrol.
MGA & Bs and Bryan Dawes’ red hot Sunbeam Tiger from the 1960s were reminders of the heyday of British sports cars.
Devotees of two wheels brought their bikes.
A couple of heritage trucks came along too.
Clive Chew, a heritage tractor and stationary engine admirer, has restored many bits and bobs of past agriculturally significant machinery.
He loaded his 44 year old Dodge truck with his magnificently restored 73 year old John Deere tractor.
