THE halcyon days of 1950s and 60s motoring will be recaptured this Sunday, as the Rural Life Centre in Tilford stages its annual Mark II Ford Rally.
Known as the Three Graces, the MK IIs were first manufactured from 1956 to 1962 and were among some of the most popular and recognisable cars on the highways.
Lovingly preserved and meticulously maintained, the cars from the rock and roll era will be on parade at The Reeds Road museum where their owners will be on hand to answer questions about them. Visitors are encouraged to bring along their own classic cars, and there is a trophy for the best vehicle.
The centre will be open from 10am to 5pm.
