Motor Heritage Centre - Old Ford Day


Recommended Posts

For this years “Old Ford Day” at Gaydon Motor heritage Centre we were invited to bring along any ex-military Ford vehicles. This was later extended to include any military vehicles and we had about 25 in all attend which we were very pleased with. Some came from great distances (thank you Robert). The event was a great success and here are some photos of the day:

Not MV related but quite interesting. While my daughter was watching the ducks (geese), they were suddenly chased off by a fish. This fish (carp?) then came right up to the edge of the lake and watched us intently I presume waiting to be fed. Great big thing he was:

I had a man talk to me about my WOA2 while I was at the event. His Father had one in the mid 1950s and he hadn't seen one since. He had only called in Gaydon Museum on a chance visit and seeing my WOA2 made his day!
