A vin­tage year for clas­sic car show

Record num­bers at Ger­rards Cross event fea­tur­ing guest ap­pear­ance from lat­est Tesla Model S

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

Held on Wed­nes­day of last week, the show is a triple ven­ture be­tween the Abbey­field Ger­rards Cross So­ci­ety, the Ger­rards Cross Me­mo­rial Cen­tre and the ro­tary club.

And the show has con­sis­tently grown in num­bers since it started in 2009.

All of the ve­hi­cles were pre-1989 and in­cluded MG Mor­gans, Rolls Royces, Jaguars and Bent­leys as well as a dis­play of vin­tage bi­cy­cles.

The only ex­cep­tion to the age re­stric­tion was a spe­cial guest ap­pear­ance by Tesla who brought along their lat­est Model S.

Suzie Bower from the me­mo­rial cen­tre said: “This was a great af­ter­noon for the whole fam­ily. We have many fa­mil­iar faces who are reg­u­lar at­ten­dees at the Clas­sic Car show and lots of new vis­i­tors too which is won­der­ful.”

Peter Prosser and Gerry Hoare who run the event were de­lighted with the turn out.

They said: “The sun­shine cer­tainly helps but this is an es­tab­lished Clas­sic Car event now and grows from strength to strength each year – we had over 350 vis­i­tors to­day and many proud own­ers happy to share the his­tory of their ve­hi­cles.”
