July 2018 Meeting

6 July 2018

Our July meeting was our annual Show and Shine fun concours competition.  The event was again sponsored by Peter Smart Classic Alfas and this year was held at Peter’s workshop near Milton Abbas.  This  allowed us to see some of the interesting restoration and repair work going on in the shop.  

Ultimately, a total of 26 Alfa Romeos were displayed outside the workshop together with a couple of interlopers in the form of a vintage Aston Martin and a Jaguar XK150.

The Show and Shine competition was judged by myself and Ray Storey.  Ray turned up looking very much the part in the style of a Pebble Beach judge with blazer and straw boater.  Unfortunately, I failed completely in the style department with merely a borrowed straw hat (thanks Bill !) so, while Ray looked stylish and debonair, I looked anything but !   Anyway, after much consideration, we decided on the following winners who each received a certificate, a trophy and a bottle of Prosecco

1960’s    No 1960’s car present so we awarded prizes to two 1970’s cars

1970’s        James Chesney           Giulia Super

1970’s        Terry Kenyon               Alfetta GTV

1980’s        Geoff May                    164

1990’s        Ray Hunt                      916 Spider

2000’s        David Duckenfield      156 GTA

Modern     Bill Baker                      GT

Many congratulations to the winners !

The weather cooperated, we had a great evening and we offer a big thank you to Peter for sponsoring event, to Ian for the food and to Lorna and Joanne for their support
