:: [ Ardingly Vintage Vehicle Show - Ardingly, Sussex - July 2003
The Ardingly Show is not one that is noted in the
SVVS calendar but is a Show that is attended by a number of our Members
including our regular visitor Tony Oakes who again provided
the photos. Please click on any thumbnail picture below to see the full size

The Ardingly Vintage Vehicle Show is jointly organised by the Horsham
Historics and the Morris Register and has many classes of vehicles
including steam traction engines, veteran, vintage and classic cars,
caravans, motorcycles, fire engines, commercials, tractors and
machinery. As well as direct entries in main enclosures there are many
separate car club stands.
Steamers included 1901, 1909, 1923 and 1927 Fowler Road Rollers and a 1909 Fowler Tractor. Burrells
included a 1907 and a 1915 Burell Showman's Engines and a 1903 Traction
Aveling & Porters included Rollers dating from
1904/1913/1923/1924/1932. Others included a 1924 Foden type C Waggon, a 1930 Sentinel DG6
Dropside, a Wallis & Steevens Expansion Agricultural Engine of 1919
and Mclaren 1913 General Purpose Engine.
You may notice a lot of pickies have Humbers in them. No prizes for
guessing what make of cars are owned by O'Akes-the-Photo!
Tony did give me some notes on who from the SVVS Members were either shown in the catalogue or
actually spotted, but these have gone awol. I see from the photos the
following: Peter Dingle in the 1923 Morris Oxford, Chas Moody in
the 1928 Morris Cowley, Jon Quiney in the Triumph Gloria, Alan
Benewith with both his Jowetts and Frank Hayter
in the 1934 Morris 16/6. Will try and persuade O'Akes to give me more
