Dozens of classic cars were displayed at a Derbyshire town’s annual transport festival over the weekend. Hundreds of shellheads flocked to Swadlincote town center to take a look at some of the vintage and more unusual engines.

The event celebrated its 10th anniversary yesterday, Sunday May 15, with families also out in force as organizers staged children’s entertainment with fairground rides, food and drink stalls and live entertainment. It returned to the Delph this year after being held at the Gresley Old Hall last September.

Julie Adams attended the festival with her 1981 Ford Fiesta Bravo Mark 1 and a 1962 Ford Anglia. Staffordshire liveshe said: “We owned a valet business for 11 years and one of our young guys bought this car (the Bravo) when he was 18 and had it for 18 years. He gave us asked if we wanted it because he knew we were going after that.

“We came to the transport festival for the first time last year and it was absolutely amazing today. I think the weather really helped.”

Motorcycle fan Graham Woods attended the festival with his Vespa PX MK 1. He said: “It’s 39 and I’ve had it for 25 years. This is the first time that I have taken part in the festival. I love that.

Patrick Devaney was at the festival with his Bond Bug. Explaining, he said: “It was made by the Bond motor company until it was taken over by Reliant and eventually transferred to Tamworth. It was made in 1972. I have it because it’s so unusual.I’ve had it for about 18 years.

“This is my third time at the festival. I’ve been going all over the UK carrying festivals. It’s been a good turnout today.”

Darnill Shae attended the festival with her daughter Anya. He brought a Volkswagen T2 motorhome and his selection of classic Raleigh bikes, including the Chopper and Grifter.

He said: “I love classic cars and I imported them from California about 15 years ago. I love them. I also collected those bikes from the 1970s. They bring back a lot of memories for people who look at them. had as a child.”

Gary Brady proudly showed off his 1953 Ford Anglia and said, “I’ve had this since 2007, I love Hot Rods. Everyone loves it who sees it. I have been coming to this festival every year for 10 years. that’s great.”

DETROIT, MI (WXYZ) – “Friends with Classic Cars,” the Meet-up; a semi-annual event, will take place on May 14 and 15, 2022, from noon to 7:00 p.m.

This event will bring together dozens of vintage vehicles built between 1907 and 1992. Owners will have the opportunity to reminisce about times past and network with those who enjoy collecting vintage cars. There will be Food Trucks, merchandise vendors and something new this year. The Classic Car Corral will put sellers of classic vehicles face-to-face with buyers, in a 2-acre space dedicated to selling and trading classics.

The Classic Car Cavalcade returns this spring. 9:30 a.m. Saturday, May 14, owners will gather their vehicles at the beautiful Campus Church of Sainte Scholastique. The Parrish is located at 8201 W. Outer Drive and Southfield Freeway in Detroit. From 10:30 a.m. these vehicles will circulate in chronological order
order, through the historic and scenic neighborhoods of North Rosedale, Rosedale Park, Grandmont and Minock Park. The four-mile journey should take about forty minutes and end at Etheldra Mae Williams Park.

This park, located at 14300 Burgess Street, corner of Acacia, was once a neglected street and an attractive nuisance of plague, crime, and other illegal activity. In 2019, the Williams’ Park Alliance began transforming this street into a park named after the matriarch of the Williams and Brogdon families. The venue is open to the public and has hosted several community events. Beginning at noon each day, vintage vehicles will travel the streets and lawns to be admired by all. The show is free to the public.

Classic car prices plummet as collectors flock to 1990s icons https://nemgt.org/classic-car-prices-plummet-as-collectors-flock-to-1990s-icons/ Thu, 12 May 2022 23:23:53 +0000 https://nemgt.org/classic-car-prices-plummet-as-collectors-flock-to-1990s-icons/ The Jaguar E-Type, once considered a star of the classic car market, is falling out of favor as collectors shun it and other mainstream classics for younger vehicles of the 1990s.

The Jaguar E-Type, once considered a star of the classic car market, is falling out of favor as collectors shun it and other mainstream classics for younger vehicles of the 1990s.

According to classic car insurer Hagerty, the average price of an E-Type S1 3.8 Coupe has risen from £89,575 to £72,250 over the past two years. For that other coveted classic, the Aston Martin DB6, the drop was even steeper: from £344,000 to £190,500.

On a basket of five traditional classic cars, prices have fallen by an average of 13%

Explaining the price slump, John Mayhead, editor of the Hagerty UK Price Guide, said: “Collectible cars such as E-Types and DBs are seeing their prices fall or stagnate because people who have always wanted to buy them one have probably done so and paid the highest prices, while those who would buy one do not yet have the means.

“As for the DB6 and its predecessor, the DB4, their problem is that they are not the DB5, the model most associated with James Bond and the one that people really want,” he said.

Richard Wrightson of The Classic Motor Hub said that less-than-perfect examples of collectible classics suffer the most severe price cuts.

“Buyers are much more demanding than they were five years ago, when everyone jumped in and paid top dollar for cars like the E-Types, for example, that had been converted from left-hand drive to right-hand drive, only to get their fingers burnt,” he said. “Now they’re ready to wait for exactly the right car. The urge to rush out and buy something at any price is gone.

“I would certainly rather wait to buy a £200,000 E-Type in mint condition than a cheaper example that needs work and therefore, increasingly, a lot of people. Recently we sold an E-Type for £300,000 while the ones we had for £100,000 struggled to generate interest.

He created a successful energy and recycling business and owned a number of classic cars including Bentleys, Lagondas and other Jaguars, including E-types.

Roy Hatfield, 85, from Sheffield, with his 1976 Jaguar XJ-C

Mr Hatfield was an avid rally and motor racing enthusiast over the years and has competed in a number of events around the world driving classic cars.

But he is now parting with one of his favorite vehicles in the name of charity.

He said his memories of going to school in gas masks and finding safety in air-raid shelters in Sheffield are what made him want to help raise funds.

Roy was so moved by the plight of Ukrainian children that he decided to auction off his classic car

He added: “I am very depressed by what I see on television. We seem to have learned nothing about the horrors of war. So I hope that in some way the sale of this car will make good in Ukraine, and the person who buys the car gets as much pleasure out of it as I have for the past four years.

The car he is selling to benefit Ukraine is one of 2,606 Jaguar XJ-C 4.2s built to right-hand drive specification. It has been extensively and beautifully restored. As a pillarless coupe design, it doesn’t lack style and this example really kicks things up a notch with its Gloss Black paintwork offset by Rich Red leather upholstery.

The Jaguar will be sold at the next H&H Classics sale at the Imperial War Museum in Duxford, Cambridgeshire on June 22. To donate to Humanitarian appeal for UkraineClick here.

All the money raised will go to the humanitarian appeal for Ukraine.

Best of Show winners – Bennett and Jamie Capps.

Bikers, locals and car enthusiasts had plenty to see, hear and taste at the 34th Annual Seal Beach Classic Car Show. Under blue skies, with stunning views of the ocean and pier, this age-old event thrilled crowds with the sights and sounds of over 530 vintage cars, continuous music, and delicious food and drink.

Some parents have been seen pushing or pulling young children in car-shaped strollers. Some car enthusiasts brought their dogs. Police were present, of course, but there were no incidents on Saturday, April 30, according to SBPD Lt. Nick Nicholas.

The Car Show is Seal Beach’s flagship event. It is also the main fundraiser for the Seal Beach Chamber of Commerce.

The opening ceremony featured the national anthem, sung by 14-year-old Seal Beach resident Jenna Currey, followed by the presentation of the colors by young Southeast County Marines.

Audience favorites this year included live music throughout the day from four bands playing on two stages, with Down the Hatch and Familiar Faces Band in the morning and Flying Squad Band and OC Ragdolls in the afternoon. The Seal Beach Lions Club provided breakfast and lunch.

Event chairman Tim Way and co-chairman Dick Douglass of Ferguson Realty headlined this year’s classic car show. Darin Smith, a local classic car builder at DWS Car Classics in Huntington Beach, rejoined the auto show as chief judge, supported by chief judge Gary Bean, a health and style coach of life. The trophies and awards ceremony were hosted by Diana Bean, health and lifestyle coach. Judges and volunteers enjoyed refreshments and a relaxed atmosphere, compliments of Frank Carvajal and Rosie Ritchie of American Beachside Realty.

“It was amazing to feel the excitement in the air and see so many smiling and happy visitors, residents and local business owners,” Way said. “The show was a huge success and we owe it to our tireless volunteers and generous sponsors,” he concluded.

The 34th Annual Seal Beach Classic Car Show was an official event of the Seal Beach Chamber of Commerce and could not be produced without the support of generous sponsors including: Title Sponsor Original Parts Group (celebrating 40 years at Seal Beach) , The Sun News, Glowaki Chiropractic, Republic Services, Financial Partners Credit Union, Boeing, 320 Main, Ferguson Realty, Alamitos Eyecare, Anderson Brothers Design and Supply and Trophy sponsors.

Classic vehicle enthusiasts can fire up their engines as this spring and summer will mark the return of many classic car shows to Chatham-Kent after a two-year hiatus.

Content of the article

Large events that are usually held every year have been canceled in 2020 and 2021, although some organizers have adapted to virtual or smaller gatherings. This year, dates have already been set for people to see classic cars in person in most areas of the municipality.

The season kicks off with RetroFest on May 27 and 28 in downtown Chatham and events will follow in areas including Wallaceburg, Bothwell, Blenheim, Merlin and Ridgetown.

The Old Autos Bothwell Car Show will be held on August 6, with a car swap meeting on August 5 and 6 at Victoria Park in Bothwell. Lisa Downie, event chair and member of the Optimist Club of Bothwell and District, said everyone is “really confident” the event will continue this year.

She said the public had shown interest in attending the event, which usually attracts over 1,000 cars.

This 1927 Packard, a seven-passenger 443 touring car powered by a 385 cubic inch engine, was used to ferry famed aviator Charles Lindbergh through the ticker tape parade announcing his return to the United States. Millions of people were there to watch the parade and shower their hero with praise. The Packard was on display at the Blenheim Motor Show in June 2018. Photo by Peter Epp Sun Media

“People are cheering me on and there are phone calls to some of the other members asking when it’s all going to be,” Downie said.

The event will be essentially the same as 2019, Downie said, although there will only be around 250 vendors compared to the usual 300.

In addition to the car show and the exchange meeting, the event will include a parade on August 5 at 7 p.m.

“We just hope we have a good turnout and everyone is having fun and we’ll go from there,” Downie said.

The Bothwell show usually lands the same weekend as the Wallaceburg Antique Motor and Boat Outing. This year, however, it worked out so that WAMBO could be held the following weekend of August 12-14.

Content of the article

Organizers of both events said they expected a bigger turnout as a result.

“It’s good for Bothwell too, as much as it’s good for us,” said WAMBO chairman Bill Wolsing.

He said he was “100% confident” the event will take place in August. Wallaceburg has missed the event the past two summers, but organizers held another event over two days in October.

Wolsing said people can expect this year’s event to be a return to normal.

“WAMBO cannot get bigger,” he said. “We are part of the city center. We are losing our pedestrian bridge for this season so there won’t be much on the south side, but everything else is up for grabs.

The event typically brings together between 225 and 250 cars and about 40 boats, Wolsing said.

He said he was looking forward to seeing “smiling faces and good weather.

“We’ve had our regular meetings and discussed plans for the event and we’re at full speed.”

EVENTS AT THE CHATHAM-KENT CLASSIC CAR SHOW

  • May 27-28 – RetroFest, downtown Chatham
  • June 12 – Erieau Boulevard of Dreams
  • June 24-25 – Blenheim Classics Autoshow & Cruise Night, Blenheim Town Center

2022 from Sony Unexplored movie, based on its video game series of the same name, is finally on streaming services. Like the games, this Tom Holland/Mark Whalberg film is full of globetrotting and treasure hunting. A relatively new artifact that kept popping up in the movie was villain Santiago Moncado’s (Antonio Banderas) red sports car. Moncado’s most prized possession is a 1954 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL “Gullwing” and it was one of many unique vehicles to star in the film.

What was the red car in the movie “Uncharted?”

One of the villains of 2022 Unexplored film was Antonio Banderas’ Santiago Moncado. He owns a memorable 1954 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL “Gullwing” sports car. This almost priceless classic appears in several scenes in the film, including the climactic cargo plane scene.

Classic car enthusiasts had a day to remember when the first original RHD Triumph TR sports car appeared in Newbury as part of a cross country tour.

TS2 is approximately 70 years old and is owned by members of the TR Register, meticulously restored and maintained by them.

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the TR Register – which was founded in 1970 by Triumph sports car enthusiasts – TS2 is taking a Round Britain Run in the hands of over 50 local TR groups.

Members of the Kennet Valley band with the TS2

And on April 18 and 19, the car traveled to Newbury, giving vintage car enthusiasts the opportunity to examine and drive it.

Michael Field of Kennet Valley TR Register said: “It went really well.

“It was good publicity both for the TR Registry – the club to which all TR classic car owners belong – and to widen the outlet for people who visit the site.”

Mr. Field explained how the TS2 was one of two pre-production Triumph TRs.

TS1 was left-hand drive, designed to be promoted across the Atlantic and now lives in Canada, while TS2 was the first right-hand drive for the UK market.

It was hand-built in Banner Lane, Coventry, in July 1953, before the production line went into service, and promoted the launch of the TR2 at the Dublin Motor Show in 1953.

It spent much of its youth in private hands, registered in Ireland and sold to a certain Dr Brendan O’Hara, being used extensively in rallying and club motorsport.

It then became the property of automotive journalist Keith Read, now in poor condition, who eventually donated it to the TR Register.

The club launched a fundraiser for its restoration in the late 1990s and revived the car in 2000 at the NEC Classic Motor Show.

Much of the car is now slightly different from the actual pre-production model as many had to be redone where items had rotted or were beyond repair.

TS2’s greatest achievements include the 2010 Round Britain Reliability Run, where it covered 2,000 miles in 48 hours non-stop, and the show-winning car at Silverstone Classic in 2021.
