:: [ Ardingly Vintage Vehicle Show - Ardingly, Sussex -
The Ardingly Show is not one that is noted in the
SVVS calendar but is a Show that is attended by a number of our Members
including Tony Oakes who took along his trusty Box Brownie and provided
the following photos. Please click on any thumbnail picture below to
see the full size picture and please note that
the photo may take some 15 seconds to
load. To return to the thumbnails please
the Explorer "Back" arrow (top left of the screen). Pictures have been prepared for
speed of loading on the web so the definition is lower than that of a print,
and has been sized to be
viewed on an 800 x 600 setup. The day was a
bit wet and dark so some of the photos are a bit grainy.
Tony advises that he saw Mike Gorman in the Bentley Mk 4, Frank
Hayter in the Morris Oxford Six, saw Malcolm Bailey's Morris Minor but
no Malcolm, saw the Gordon Self 1924 Bentley and saw the Peter Dingle
Morris Oxford Tourer. He also said that the following were mentioned in
the Catalogue but that he did not see them or their cars: Simon Bishop,
David Cole, Mike Knowles, Charles Moody, Jon Quiney and Tony Russell.
There may have been more and some others could have come on their
motorbikes. There was a large Mortorcycle Section including Scooters and
Some very interesting Steam Engines were there; a 1920 Fowler Showman's
Engine, a 1915 Burrell Showman's Engine, a 1912 Fowler R Type
Agricultural Engine, a 1930 Super Sentinel Dropside Waggon and a Super
Sentinel Tipping Waggon and a couple of Foden C type Waggons of the mid
twenties. In all, over 20 Steam Vehicles were exhibited. Lovely sight
when in full steam.
There was a large Tractor Section which included Allis Chalmers,
Bristol, British Anzani, Cletrac, David Brown, Eicher, Ferguson, Field
Marshall, Fordson, International , Leroy, Nuffield, Pattison, Porsche,
Suffolk, Waterloo Boy, Wheel Horse etc. Other Sections included
Commercials, Busses, Fire Engines, Military Vehicles, Stationary
Engines, Horticultural, as well as Model cars and boats.
The weather was not good for the event which took place on the Saturday
and Sunday, and it rained on both days. Tony's snaps are of the Show in
general and most cars shown do not belong to SVVS Members, but please
enjoy the photographs as there are some quite interesting cars.
