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. Unfortunately most of the photographs Tony took appear to be showing vehicles from specialist club stands, and which are therefore not mentioned in the Show Catalogue. We cannot therefore provide specific details.

David Cole was there in the 1933 Austin 10 and David Locket in the 1913 Ford Model T Skiffi which is attracting much attention having a real boat for bodywork !  Bryan Goodman was on the VCC stand  in the 1913 Sunbeam 12/16, and Colin Mulford was on the MG stand in the 1954 MG TF. As it was a big show, apologies for any omissions. Tony's snaps are of the Show in general and many of the vehicles shown do not belong to SVVS Member. Please enjoy all our the photographs as there were some quite interesting and rare cars and steamers on show.
