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.
