Duchy Capri & Classic Ford Club :: A Club Based in the Duchy of Cornwall for the Ford Capri & Classic Fords

Carnhell Green Charity Vintage Rally

Saturday 10th August 2013

Written by: Mark Roberts

Members Mark, Lewis, Pete and Jodie attended this one, now in its 20th year they have raised over £100,000 for charity so far.

This is a great little one day show that has grown even since I’ve been going these last few years. With over 100 Cars, Commercials, Steam, a very good showing of Motor Cycles, Tractors and Heavy Horses, there was something for everyone.

Pete was roped into driving a very tidy Mini Van on the Commercial display, a bit of a change after his car. As he passed me he shouted ‘I prefer my Capri!’

There were many Fords on display, ranging from a couple of Model T’s, a Model A, V8 Pilot, Escorts, Anglia’s and of course Capri’s.

The V8 Pilot was awarded best of show, with stiff competition a good day for the blue oval badge. Being a local show, it was great to catch up with friends for a chat without the expense of travelling too far.

Roll on next year, I will certainly be going and can recommend this event for everyone.

Mark.
