Volvo Enthusiasts Club win ‘Best Club Stand’

In previous years the Volvo Enthusiasts Club has supported this event by taking a space in the autojumble to promote membership of the club and its activities.

            This year we were asked by the organisers if we would like to take a Club Stand following the theme of Rock & Roll Years with cars from the 50’s, 60’s, 70’s and in our case the 80’s and to accompany the cars there would be live music

            Our display featured 3 Volvo,s, Kevin, our Founders very rare, with only 6 serving worldwide according to Volvo Sweden, PV445 Convertible, Chris Tye’s very nice Jensen built P1800 and Colin Hughes, our Principle Club Contact’s Volvo 760 Lowrider Estate.

            Forming the backdrop of the display was an American Drive-in painted by Kevin some years ago while teaching in Cornwall and was taken he told us from the opening sequence of the Rock & Roll film American Graffiti. Standing back from the Stand it was very realistic with the cars parked in front.

            In addition to the Live Music, Colin entertained the visitor to the stand with his Lowrider, performing a variety of movements to the onboard music. The car really is a credit to Colin and always draws a crowd.

          This really was an excellent Show, with lots of visitors and interest in the Club. Thanks to those members who helped man the stand and a special thanks to Barrie Sutcliffe who came all the way from Huddersfield to help.

          Our hard work was in the end rewarded by the organisers, who awarded us Best Club Stand. Many thanks to them. Our next visit to shepton Mallet will be for the Bristol Classic Car Show, the venues major event. So why not come along and support us. A date for the Diary – 35th Bristol Classic Car Show, 14th -15th June 2014 .
