It was nice to see the CCW team go for a bit of a road trip to the Grampian Trans­port Mu­seum in or­der to visit the ex­cel­lent How Many Left? event. You can read all about their ex­ploits on page 10, but need­less to say, much fun was had by the boys in my old Saab 9000 Aero – even if they weren’t ex­actly kind to it in the process.

The think­ing be­hind the event is fan­tas­tic, though. It’s a proper cel­e­bra­tion of cars, of which there are fewer than 500 ex­am­ples left on Bri­tish roads. Of the cars that made it there, many were far rarer than that, with the Chrysler Hori­zon be­ing per­haps the least com­mon at all, with the owner claim­ing his has the only one left.

What’s nice is that this event, along with the Fes­ti­val of the Unex­cep­tional, makes heroes of the or­di­nary cars, which in the past, many so-called en­thu­si­asts might have said aren’t clas­sics at all. But what do they know? These cars are loved, so they’re clas­sics.
