Default Classic Ford show 2019.

So people who went and was it any good. Was it better than Santa pod.

I've spoke to a few people on Instagram and they both said the classic Ford show at the pod was miles better.

Weather didnt help from about 12.30pm, seemed alittle thin on the ground to be honest before the heavens opened.

The cars, people & atmosphere were great imo
Was alittle dusty and the heavens opened up around 12:30

I think Santa pod is a sh!t hole and awful to get to...
Didn’t think Mallory was too bad today tbh

It wanted laying out/ organising better but over all enjoyed it all...
Great seeing so many Classic/ Retro Fords together

I need to keep a eye on dates more as it was about mid day when my partner said you no there's a ford car show on today at Malory ☹️ i only live about 15 to 20 min from there but then the heavens opened up so I put the kettle on 😁

Show has potential if the organisation is better.

The security people there needed to stop driving along the stands every 15 minutes dragging up dust as they went as they just covered everything.

Getting to the centre of the track needs rethinking as it was a nightmare getting over the bridge every time.

The initial stand organisation and communication by Kelsey in my opinion was a farce though. My lot were told that if you did not have 5 cars then you could not have a stand. We have that but then one dropped out, leaving us with 4. We were told we would be moved to individual display in that case. The rest dropped out at that point as this is not what they wanted so I went alone as individual display to find that I had been put on a stand display area. Simply parked the car and walked off until around 1pm when the rains came and then left, along with most of the paying public from what I saw. Everyone needs to leave through the car park though so can imagine that being a nightmare at times.

never been a fan of the organisers that much you know Ian, and your comments come as no surprise to me with bad organisation and I agree with above comment of santa pod being dire, but they will always be full and as they are doing their own ford show this year I can see that one being a success purely on location tbh, for those into track action mallory was prob the better option for sure

I went in my Saff and I have to agree it was not as big as Classic Ford at Santa-Pod but the track action was good.The organisation could have been better, trying to find your way to your stand was not easy and having to get out across 2 tracks through fields after it had rained was not what I had anticipated. There were some nice classic Fords on display and on track.

RS2000 with over 500bhp on the Classic Ford magazine stand.

Very smart 3 door XR4i ?

Modern turbo engine to push it along.

RST

with Cossy power!





V8 Powered Anglia

Went well on track and sounded good.



Classic Anglia, hot cross-flow, Lotus rims etc. Same as my first car!!

Mk2 Lotus Cortina,

Ford Corsair, not many left now.

Mk3 Cortina looking good.

Zephyr Mk2 Ute.

Ford Pop hot rod.





Cossy Capri.

1960s Mustangs.

Unusual mk1 Cortina Estate
