Minis among the high­lights at multi-mar­que Som­er­set event.

Mini Magazine - - News -

Plenty of clas­sic car fans de­scended on the Bath and West Show­ground in Som­er­set for the Foot­man James Restora­tion Show on Novem­ber 5-6. Run­ning for the 16th time, the multi-mar­que event at­tracted a healthy num­ber of Minis and Mini-re­lated traders.

In­side the halls were dis­plays from Bris­tol Mini Drifters, Retro Fundrais­ing and the Mi­das Own­ers Club, with a late Cooper Sport from the Yeovil Car Club and what was claimed to be the old­est reg­is­tered pro­duc­tion Mini Moke also present – one from the first batch of 10 or­dered by the Devon Fire Bri­gade. Out­side, a good turnout of Minis in­cluded a Works-in­spired Mk3, a MkI Cooper S and DOM 337C, a su­perb replica of the two fa­mous twin-en­gined ‘Twini’ pro­to­types built in the ‘60s.

The main ap­peal for many, how­ever, was the vast au­to­jum­ble and trade area. Plenty of bar­gains and ma­te­ri­als could be had for those win­ter projects at rock-bot­tom prices, and many came out with sev­eral car­rier bags full of good­ies!
