    Strathaven Classic Car Show

    Fantastic sunny day in Scotland for the Strathaven Classic Car show, good to see several 427's turning up, loads of compliments on our cars.




    However, my favourite and most of the visitors was this:

    I never knew it was on, shame. It looked good.

    Hi Rob,
    Just up the road from me and I didn't know it was on. I haven't heard of a Stathaven Car show before. Is this one that has moved from East Kilbride or similar?

    Clive and John, the show was organised by Strathaven round table and this was the first attempt. They are intending making the show the replacement for the Chatelherault car show in Hamilton that has now been abandoned by the council. All proceeds from the show go to local charities. It was a good first attempt, a little ragged around the organisation but they will use the experience to improve next year, well worth supporting.

    Hi Rob,
    Thought it might have been a replacement for that show as it had jumped about a bit. Shows seem to be getting a little few and far between down in Ayrshire nowadays. The larger ones like Culzean have all but disappeared.

    Hi Alex,
    I was told that a few years ago a new manager took over and started to demand larger portions of the gate money from shows. A lot of shows not just car shows seemed to be driven away by this new approach and for at least one year the culzean car show moved to Eglington park. Members of the East Ayrhire Car Club that ran the show will know the ins and outs of it. Anyway the goings on ruined it for eveyone and the National Trust I would imagine lost a lot of money out of it. I had heard this "manager" moved on. The Auto Classica wont happen again due to Culzean demanding horrendous amounts of money per field used and supposedly using there own people to take gate money. This was very lapse and as such the show organisers didn't stand a chance of getting beyond what was due to Culzean by the end of it.
    Pity with all these goings on because it was always a show I made sure to attend.
    Got another cobra yet? Saw your face at Stoneleigh I think.

    Hi John,

    Yes saw you driving by at Stoneleigh, was looking for you afterwards but didn't see you again.

    Remember kettle is always on at my house if you are passing. Especially if you want some additional encouragement to get into one again.
    Cheers.
