Thumbs up for an outstanding evening, hosted by the genial and endlessly knowledgeable Doug. It was a very informative hands-on meeting allowing the braver members to get involved in the starting up of some quirky vehicles with unconventional starting ways. Well attended by enthusiastic Trust members enjoying the privilege of stepping over the ropes, seeing inside the engines and sitting in the cars.
We all came away more knowledgeable, our ears ringing from Doug’s beloved Mustang, and more enlightened by all the behind the scenes work that keeps an outstanding collection in running order.

When was the last time you checked your garage, outhouse or barn and found an old Alvis, Jaguar or Ford? This evening was about vehicles bought and never sold when owners finished driving them, or put away when they went wrong, and forgotten. We heard about the V12 E-type Jaguar left in a garage after a lorry hit it and jammed the door shut and the Ginetta, kept in a summerhouse until purchased by an enthusiast. There were many before and plenty of during and after, restoration pictures and a little history behind the vehicles pictured. All in all it was a great evening, presented by Michael Ware, former Director of our National Motor Museum.
