Grampian Motor Show - 11 May 2014 Report and photos by Dave Ross
A damp day at Alford for the inaugural Grampian Transport Museum car show.
The CCHMSC members did enjoy themselves even if things got off to a wobbly start.
Graeme Henderson was standing over his Austin Healey cursing a flat
tyre. With no spare he had to opt for his Mazda MX5.
Pity, as there were plenty of other MX5s and the Healey is always a
draw at these events.
Alan Gibb decided the rain in Aberdeen was
too heavy to bring out his Swallow Doretti, another great crowd puller
on events. Alan did manage to get a friend to bring a Lotus
Cortina Mk2 to fill the gap.
The team handed out club flyers, which did create interest in the club's activities..
There was talk of a lot of
call-offs due to the weather in Aberdeen but it was dry, if damp, all
day at Alford. The Mini Owners, having
been so active on e-mails prior to the event, didn't appear to
have turned out! I didn't see any Minis there at all.
As a social gathering it was a success but getting local car clubs to mix is never easy.
The organisers are talking about a bigger event next year with some active participation, best stand etc,
