Despite the weather Gods ignoring our pleas the moisture did not dampen our spirits and many marvellous motors & intrepid pilots braved the elements to turn up regardless for the 6th Turner Locker Revival in Barnfield Crescent.
As always there was wonderfully eclectic mix of cars and bikes. From Tiny 1930’s Austin 7 Ulster 750cc with its 6’3″ wheelbase to a 19ft 1959 Cadillac with a 6.4 litres V8. A Bugatti GP car from 1929 sat between a 1950 Dellow Trials cars & 1940 Buick Straight 8. A Lotus 6 from 1952 nestled between a huge red Pontiac Le Mans and the a 7.2 litre Jensen interceptor. Full marks to the man who drove his 1920 Silver Ghost from Cornwall through wind & rain.
The musical backdrop was provided by the Hummingbirds & the Sun Dogs with sustenance flowing from Lemon Jelli, Good Game , Timber Coffee & Flamin Good Pizza. Again people made the effort to dress ‘with style’ and troupe of Lindy hop dancers helped to set the scene and added to the party atmosphere
The clouds parted and the sun shone through. All in all the ‘Do’ that become known as the South West’s car end of term party went pretty much without a hitch ( Well on 1969 Ford Capri towed home by the AA but..)
The events is put on and sponsored by Turner Locker Barnfield Ltd commercial property agents and supported by creative agency, Toco Creative & Andrew Butler photography. This year money was raised for Blesma who provide support to limbless and injured veterans for life.
