Show Visit, Himley Hall Classic Car Show, Dudley, 1977

Entered my Ford GPW Jeep with two friends from college to this show and took photos of the other military vehicles. They don’t look too impressed but Simon Garner on the left was into Ferraris and Kevin Allen on the right was into Lotus Elans. Simon went off to achieve fame and fortune in the steel stockholder industry and probably has his Ferrari now, while Kevin went off to be a teacher in London. If you’re out there guys……..  I’ve added the shot of the Dingo with the chaps working on the radio for the people themselves. Left is Tony Whitehead, who owned the Chevy 15cwt GS here, middle is Les Bouts and on the right is Tony Mansell, all early members of the MV hobby. The Standard 12 Utility belongs to John and Mary Worthing, later world famous for their range of canvas covers and accessories.       

It was a nice afternoon with many other classics, as you can see in the background, now if only I’d taken some photos of them as well !
