Chris Barrie with ‘Car of the Show' winner Alan FilbyGrey skies and a chilly wind failed to dampen the enthusiasm of exhibitors and spectators at the Greenwood Exhibitions' Classic Car Show and Autojumble at Old Warden Park near Biggleswade, Bedfordshire, on Sunday 20th May where a great turnout of vehicles from the 1920s to the 1980s was on display.
‘Red Dwarf' star and engineering enthusiast Chris Barrie was kept busy meeting and interviewing owners who had won awards and choosing his ‘Car of the Show', a 1947 2.5 litre Jaguar owned by Alan Filby of Bedford. Chris summed up his choice by saying: ‘Not concours but it was the original tool kit that swung it for me!'
The Best Club Stand prize was won by the Capri Mk 1 Owners Club, who received a cheque for £100.
Other award winners included Mr John Wallet from Ely with his 1969 Rover P5B; Ken Wright from Luton with his 1972 Triumph Stag; and the 1934 Packard Sedan of Terry Cantelo from Enfield.
Greenwood Exhibition's Event Director, Steve Smith was delighted with the turnout. "We were really pleased to be at Old Warden, a venue steeped in the motoring and aviation heritage of Richard Shuttleworth, and we look forward to developing the show in the future. Our thanks go to all the owners who braved the cold weather to come and enjoy this great day out.'
