Classic variety on show in the south-west

| 2 Jan 2012

More than 120 cars took every available space at The Frogmill in Andoversford, Gloucestershire for the Cotswold Classic Car Club’s annual New Year’s Day gathering.

Starting at 11:30am, the event drew an array of different classics, ranging from an Austin Seven special (above) – the oldest car on show – to American muscle cars, Italian exotics and plenty of British favourites (such as a Triumph TR3A, below).

“This is by far the best-attended event we have had so far,” said Doug Taylor of the CCCC, “it just increases every year. It was great that we also had some single-marque club members here, such as the MG Owners’ Club, the Austin-Healey Club and the Morris Minor Owners’ Club, so thank you to them for coming. We raised a large amount of money for our designated charity, which is the Gloucestershire Air Ambulance.”

The Cotswold Classic Car Club can lay claim to being the fastest-growing mixed-marque classic car club in the south-west and is gaining a reputation for the diversity of cars among its members (such as a Ford Mustang, above) and its friendly outlook.
