Weston Park Festival of Transport, April 2011

Although this show is advertised through the classic car world as a Festival of Transport, we always have a few military green machines attending. Not as many as I would like though as the location on the A5 East of Telford in Shropshire is such an easy location to travel to.
This year we went on the Saturday rather than the usual Sunday and I’m glad I did, as the number of vehicles was much better than usual.
Got talking to the owner of the lovely condition Dodge Ambulance and he allowed us to look inside and take photos. He’d got stretchers and a load of medical equipment to complement the vehicle.
Our only only whine for the show is that the military section was again placed right at the very back of the showground and if you hadn’t purposely searched them out like we did, you could have easily missed them.
Paul Wallis was there with his fantastic head turning GKN Simba.
Watch out for this at other shows and if you get the chance as we did to hear the engine tick over, it purrs like a huge leopard. From photos we’ve featured in the past of the Simba, we get many emails into our postbox asking for more details and how they can contact the owner to buy it !
So our first show of the season, and despite Weston Park’s Easter Show being famous for rain, the weather was gorgeous.

So enjoy these photos and if you’re interested in classic cars, have a look at our sister website www.classiccarblog.co.uk for loads of photos of more polished and shinier vehicles !
