The Volvo Enthusiasts Club wins again at Bristol Show!
What a great weekend!
The Volvo Enthusiasts Club Display Team was once again in action over the weekend of the 13th/14th February at the Great Western Classic Car Show and Autojumble at Shepton Mallet.
Five cars were displayed on a Rock & Roll ‘Grease’ themed stand, complete with a 1950’s American Diner backdrop which was painted and signs produced by the Club’s Founder – Kevin.
On display was Kevin’s extremely rare 1952 Volvo PV445 Convertible, which won RU ‘Most interesting Vehicle’ in the show and has over the past year
This was joined by Terry and Lisa Court’s ‘Grease Lightening’ 1800S, complete with flames, plus Treena & Kerris Price’s Volvo OV4 Pedal Car and driver Teddy!
Peter and Nicki Yapp brought along their lovely original 120 Estate which was exhibited some 20 years ago at the NEC on a Club display when owned by Max Davies,
Helping build and man the stand were also Club Display Team Members Jim, Sean and Debbie Skeet and new to the Team Jean Maurin, who is currently restoring a 1965 PV544 Sport he bought new and Raced/Rallied in 1960’s. He is keen to get things going in the Bristol area with a regular meet so if you live in the South-West or around Bristol he would be pleased to hear from you – any enquiries at this stage to Kevin.
Reward for all the hard work over the weekend came in the way of the Club Display being awarded R/U Best Stand in the show.
A great weekend was had by all, although bitterly cold outside the show. Thanks to all those Members old and new who braved the weather to come along and show their support of the club.
See you all again on the weekend of the 17th & 18th June for our main show/display at Shepton Mallet, the Bristol Classic Car Show.
