22nd July 2015, Naunton Classic Show and Village Fete

Earlier in the year when we went to the Wheelnuts Show at St. Roses School in Stroud a leaflet appeared on the car for a show at Naunton which is between Andoversford and Stow-on-the-Wold. It invited us to their classic car show and village fete.  Naunton is a nice little village and only about 30 miles away so that sounded like a nice day out and it went in the diary.

It was cool and cloudy when we left home for the show but the weather forecast said it would  improve and that is exactly what happened - in fact we got a bit sunburnt - and the soft top of the TR7 stayed down all day.  Over 100 cars turned up and were neatly parked around two sides of the cricket square with the other two sides being a catering area and a sports area/running track. Cars varied from a sublime 1929 Blower Bentley to a ridiculous Sinclair C5 with everything else in between.

A genuine 1929 Blower Bentley

Not real - its a modern replica of the Bentley
Which is older, the car or the owners?

Aston Martin Lagonda, a rare sight but they made over 600
Audi Sport Quattro S1
Sinclair C5
My TR7 between an AC and a Healey 3000
It was a really good day out and the village fete part gave a nice touch of something many places have lost. There were all kinds of stuff for the kids, normal running races, sack races, running backwards races, obstacle races etc. and a proper "podium" for the winners. Stalls selling cakes, jam, plants, herbs, in fact a proper old-fashioned village fete.

Shopping trolley damage?
Found this scrape on the passenger door the other day, looks like someone was careless with a shopping trolley or similar. Very annoying.
