Bearwood Classic Car Show.

This was a new show for us and the first time it was put on. It was organised by the parents association of Bearwood College in aid of 'Help for Heros' charity. Our invitation was kindly given by Dave and his Barkham and District classic car club

We; a gathering of many car clubs (Hants, Surrey and East Grinstead) met in the car park of the local Sainsburys at a very reasonable 10:00, no early starts here.
We moved off in a convoy to the venue which was a very impressive private college with a tree lined access road.
After we had convinced the organisers that the Fiesta was in fact an honorary Capri we were assembled in the main courtyard adjacent to the chapel.

As you can see there was a pretty good turnout, moving along the lineup above we have Graeme (Fiesta), Mike, Jamie, Jim & Jane, Alan P, Phil, Sharon, Ray, Pete and Alan M.
Once settled out came the gazebo to protect Sharon's 280 Turbo from any threatening rain, sun, bird poo or re-entering satellites.

Around the corner on the rear gardens were the expensive cars, including the Aston Martin and this Nash which won best in show. I loved the Tommy Gun in the passenger seat.

This MK1 Cortina was very good, it didn't look like it had been restored, just very good original condition. This one is in May Classic Ford magazine with the AA van.

A Corvette and 'Magnum PI' Ferrari

This is a JPS ex-race car warming it's self up just before showing off by doing a 30 metre burnout..

All in all a stonking start to this years events. The organisers must of had a word with 'im up stairs; the weather was cracking.
