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.

You may notice a lot of pickies have Humbers in them. No prizes for guessing what make of cars are owned by O'Akes-the-Photo!

Tony did give me some notes on who from the SVVS Members were either shown in the catalogue or were actually spotted, but these have gone awol. I see from the photos the following: Peter Dingle in the 1923 Morris Oxford, Chas Moody in the 1928 Morris Cowley,  Jon Quiney in the Triumph Gloria, Alan Benewith with both his Jowetts and  Frank Hayter in the 1934 Morris 16/6. Will try and persuade O'Akes to give me more info.
