More than 2,000 historic cars were the stars of the Classic and Performance Car Show at Tatton Park in Cheshire last weekend. writes Paul Hudson.
Among the thousands of vehicles that were all driven to the show from near and far, this beautiful 1971 Saab 96 Estate caught my eye.
It’s owned by show star Chris Boffey, who restored the car himself to make it as true to the original as possible, incorporating subtle modifications to make it the ideal everyday classic – and earned it its first Telegraph Choice Award.
Despite a somewhat wet start on Saturday morning, there was no dampening on the enthusiasm of the huge crowd and the many clubs and individuals who put on an excellent range of cars on display.
There was also an Autojumble with a wide range of rare and versatile classic car parts.
Dave Youngs, Car Club Manager at title sponsor Lancaster Insurance said: “The venue is stunning and it was amazing to see the constant stream of classic and high performance cars arriving at the start of each day, there were some real beauties! It was also great to meet our existing customers and show a wider audience what Lancaster has to offer for classic car enthusiasts.”
Organizers’ attention now turns to the Classic American Stars and Stripes Show on July 6th and 7th, again at Tatton Park.
Visitors can expect the same high level of detail and most importantly, the site will once again be teeming with classic vehicles and hundreds of trade stands.
