It’s been a very hectic week.
Firstly all the work for Haslemere Classic Car Show is coming to its climax with the event on Sunday 27th.
The tour is planned, the programmes printed and the passes sent out. We have 75 cars on the tour and 75 pre-booked for the show. With the weather being good I hope to see another 50+ turn up on the day. Bring your car along, we have the space!
With the show is a great 50 stall quality market selling everything from olives to art and some brilliant food suppliers from the local farmers markets.
There’s loads for all the family with a pirate galleon, face painting and vintage roundabouts for the children, shopping for lovely things for mum and a try your strength test for the dads.
The workshop is on full alert with the Mini Moke project close to completion and a deadline for mid June! I’m confident it will be all done…
I also collected this week the next project, a 402 Bristol. A very rare car, rolling but loads of boxes on peculiar bits to identify.
The big news this week is that the UK Transport Minister has announced that from November this year cars made before 1960 will no longer require an MoT test.
I don’t think this is a great idea, we all love our cars but an annual inspection on a ramp and brake test is surely in everyone’s interest?
Perhaps a shortened ‘fast track’ test would have been better?
