was a quagmire on the Friday before the event and any idea of cutting the
grass prior to the show days had to be abandoned. After a shaky start on
the Saturday morning fine weather prevailed for two days and the Tatton
Classic Car Show proved as popular as ever with hoards of spectators and
enthusiasts of every marque putting in an appearance.
The number of AHC members in attendance was fewer
than usual in part due to several regular attendees having headed over the
channel to the St Moritz Healey meeting.
John & Jill Bowman joined us in their
concours winning BJ8 on the Saturday and it is rumoured that he was made a
generous offer for the car by a South African. Tempting though it may have
been, the Bowman's were having none of it. Six years of restoration over
they have every intention of now enjoying the car on the roads.
Thanks to Ken Broster for his catering
efforts on both days.
Next time we are at this venue will be next
June with over 100 Healeys expected for the Northern Centre organised
