Saturday 20th July
The Festival of the Unexceptional
Claydon Estate, just south of Buckingham.
Entries to the Concours De L’Ordinaire will open in January whilst the limited number of entry tickets for the event will become available in the spring time.
Whilst our cars are anything but ‘Ordinaire’ and unlikely to be accepted (Clive’s Rancho was invited a few years ago but, although appreciated, judged not to appear boring enough).
It’s a great day out with an excellent mix of oddball classics in the surrounding parking.
The chosen few in the display are not only pristine examples of a lost cause but very often have a fascinating back story with their owner’s families or friends dressing to the period and displaying the sort of fare that only Tesco in the 70s could muster.
Book early because this event is becoming a victim of its own success; - Oh, and bring a picnic. www.unexceptionalcars.co.uk (See Clive’s article in the Nov. mag.)
