Perranporth Classic Car Show – Monday 24th July 2006
Seafront Car Park, 1930hrs.
Written by: Tristan Barratt
Mark, Steve, Gary, Tony, Dave and Tris met at Chiverton Cross services at 1845hrs and headed the short distance to Perranporth in convoy. At one point en route, Gary was waylaid when an unwelcome visitor arrived in his car, in the shape of a wasp. Once dispatched, we continued to the venue, a small green in front of the Perranporth surgery. We all parked up safely (a few exhausts scraped on the way in) Paul arrived with his gorgeous 280 and we were then joined by a fellow enthusiast who had just bought a Capri a few days before! Ian dashed home (locally) and arrived back at the venue with his new acquisition. Many people enjoyed the spectacle of the Capris parked up and we were happy to chat with them and answer any questions. After a few of us had a fish and chip supper, a stroll along the seafront to view the other attendees was the order of the evening.
A small but intimate show, this is a pleasant evening spent in a great location, fortunately with perfect weather.
