:: [ Ardingly Vintage Vehicle Show - Ardingly, Sussex - July 2002
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 our regular visitor Tony Oakes who again provided
the following photos and details. Please click on any thumbnail picture below to see the full size

for speed of loading, and the page has been sized to be viewed at

The Ardingly Vintage Vehicle Show is jointly organised by the Horsham
Historics and the Morris Register and has many classes of vehicles
including steam traction engines, veteran, vintage and classic cars,
caravans, motorcycles, fire engines, commercials, tractors and
machinery. As well as direct entries in main enclosures there are many
separate car club stands. Unfortunately most of the photographs Tony
took appear to be showing vehicles from specialist club stands, and
which are therefore not mentioned in the Show Catalogue. We cannot
therefore provide specific details.
Tony has logged that SVVS Members either shown in the catalogue or as
actually spotted attending were, in no specific order, Gordon Self in
the 1924 Bentley, Peter Dingle in the 1923 Morris Oxford, Chas Moody in
the 1928 Morris Cowley (which Tony believes does not exist !!) , Mike
Knowles in the 1935 Austin 16, Mike Gorman in the 1934 Morris 10/4
tourer and the 1950 Bentley MK4, Tony Russell in the 1937 Popular
Convertible (7W), Jon Quiney in the 1939 Triumph Dolomite, Frank Hayter
in the 1934 Morris 16/6 and
Malcolm Bailey in the 1934 Morris Minor.
David Cole was there in the 1933 Austin 10 and David Locket in the 1913 Ford Model T
Skiffi which is attracting much attention having a real boat for
bodywork ! Bryan Goodman was on the VCC stand in the 1913
Sunbeam 12/16, and Colin Mulford was on the MG stand in the 1954 MG TF. As it was a big
show, apologies for any omissions. Tony's snaps are of the Show in
general and many of the vehicles shown do not belong to SVVS Member.
Please enjoy all our the photographs as there were some quite interesting
and rare cars and steamers on show.
