Car park bash celebrates C&SC turning 30

| 24 Aug 2012

Hundreds of car enthusiasts descended on C&SC’s HQ in Teddington last night to celebrate 30 years of the biggest classic car magazine in the world.

The cars were the stars, though, with a dream mix of classic exotica that included Stateside metal such as a Corvette Stingray, Chevrolet Bel Air and a unique Ford Mustang pickup truck.

Euro machinery came in the form of several Ferraris – everything from a 365GTC, to a 456 and a 550 – a Maserati Khamsin, an Alfa Romeo SZ, a Fiat 500, Jaguars, Bentleys, Aston Martins a BMW CSL and many more.

A fair chunk of the attendees were winners from our online competition, but there was only one winner on the night: Geoff Mitchell’s near-perfect Chrysler 300L was chosen by the C&SC team as the car they’d most like to take home.

Meanwhile six lucky readers won the opportunity to have their cars professionally photographed in our studios.

Our cars were out in force, too, Including James Elliott’s Elan+2, Alastair Clements’ Magnette, David Evans’ BMW 2002, Martin Port’s Scimitar and Julian Balme’s Ford Galaxie.

Thanks goes out for the fantastic ice cream from Daisy, the raved about burgers from Street Kitchen and to Old Speckled Hen for insuring the party got into full swing.
