:: [ SVVS Lunchtime Meeting - The
Dog & Duck, Outwood - September 2004 ] ::

The Dog & Duck is located on Outwood Hill in Surrey not far from the Outwood Windmill. The text would have been from the SVVS Magazine report by Chris Cuss had his virus checker not wiped it from his computer. Photos are by Tony Oakes and Bozi Mohacek who also scanned the mag!  Please click on any thumbnail picture below to see the full size picture.

Harry Scott and I were both golfing widowers recently as our respective other halves had go off to Devon to spend a few days knocking small white balls down holes in the grass. Missing the joys of a home cooked Sunday roast we did the next best thing and set off in the Riley 9 hp tourer to enjoy lunch in Outwood in the company of some like-minded folk. Not only was there a good number of cars present but we also enjoyed meeting three new members for the first time. David and Sheila Worsfold arrived in their white 1970 Morris Minor 1000 whilst John Hollingdale brought his 1966 Ford Cortina Mk 1 GT. He has rebuilt this car from no less than three other vehicles and the paint scheme is reminiscent of a Lotus Cortina.

 Desmond Peacock was a familiar face in an unfamiliar car as he arrived in an Australian domiciled Amilcar that is stopping in his garage at present. Rather larger than your average Amilcar this was a aluminum bodied two seater mounted on a G type chassis but fitted with an E type two litre engine. Highly highly polished metal shone in the weak sunshine as did Jan van de Pol's immaculate Jaguar XK140, which shared the prize for the most polished car with Clive Bracey's Cobra look-alike. Clive managed the trick of also bringing his Jaguar XK120.

Abingdon's finest were out in force with the Hon Ed and Thelma in their Y type saloon; Derek and Jacqui Wright in their 1946 TC, Bert Batten in his 1951 TD and a rare pre-war model in the shape of an L type Magna that I believe is owned by Brian Daley. Tony Oakes brought his imposing 1930 Humber Snipe and his next door neighbour arrived in his posing yellow garden shed, which he had difficulty in parking. For those not sharing my warped sense of humour the second half of the previous sentence should read - Mr Mohacek arrived in his cream Rolls Royce station wagon.

Ian MacLennan's 1928 41!/2 litre Bentley is always a delight to see in its completely original unmucked about condition. Graham Martin brought one of his pair of Standards whilst Raymond Hobbs was in his 1972 Rover 2000 TC. Brian Pooley came in his Alvis TA21 and Michael Harvey in his Morgan, Jim Biagden's 1946 Rover 10 carried greetings from Alan and Lesley Milbank on its windscreen.

Near neighbour Alan Pratt exercised his rare 1935 Crossley Regis and I still failed to identify the V8 powered Ford that has graced some recent meetings. Our beloved chairman Mike Erroll had to bring a modern as he was accompanied by a spaniel, Tigram, usually known as Tiggy'. Lunch in the pub was excellent and a welcome change from Chinese takeaways.
