he an­nual Marl­bor­ough Hospice Ve­hi­cle Show gets bet­ter and bet­ter ev­ery year. The event seems to have the abil­ity to en­cour­age car lovers from all over the top of the South Is­land to bring their ve­hi­cles out of hid­ing, and, af­ter a quick spit and pol­ish, put them on dis­play. Many of them usu­ally haven’t been seen for sev­eral years.

The theme for this year was the mighty Ford Mus­tang. Over 20 of Henry’s finest ex­am­ples, from very early to very new, lined up for the pub­lic to in­spect. Now in its fifth year, the event has be­come so pop­u­lar that a slight name change has been needed. It is now known as the ‘Hospice Ve­hi­cle Show’ and, for the first time this year, it in­cluded clas­sic boats as well as the reg­u­lar line-up of cars and bikes.

The weather couldn’t have been bet­ter, and over 350 ve­hi­cles of all types gave the lo­cals a lot to ad­mire and again raised a lot of money for a wor­thy char­ity.
