While half of EDMC went to Newquay for the
Rivera Run, the other half stayed at home and attended Eastbourne’s
classic car show Magnificent Motors. Apparently there was
approx 500 vehicles on display over the 2day event ranging
from motorcycles to…well…minis. We cavalcaded down the seafront
as the heavens decided to open up but this was short-lived
and by the time we had set up the sun was breaking through
the clouds. We shared a pitch with Sussex Mini Club and
Screwball Mini Club, and as usual SMC had a good range of
minis on show while SBMC had a large variety of 1 Mini City.
After having a wander round we came back to find flyers
for SBMC on all our minis, so we decided that we would keep
Robs daughter amused by making paper aeroplanes, frogs,
and swans out of them. On my planes maiden voyage it flew
like no other paper aeroplane and landed on the back of
SBMC chairman’s wife who just happened to be bending down
at the time. At this point everyone was wetting themselves
laughing and the area was vacated. Meanwhile Bill had gone
missing, but was soon found by the bar-bequest chatting
away to a fellow mini nut.
On the Monday I turned up early to see if anybody else was
there and ended up helping SMC rescue their marquee after
a flimsy gazebo came crashing down the western lawns straight
through it, bending the tubes and ripping a hole in the
roof. Decided it was too wet and went back to Steve Medhurst
house for brekkie.
Went back about 12 and found that 4 of EDMC had turned up.
The star of the show (apart from mingie2) had to be the
V-Tec & K-series conversions which grabbed a lot of
attention from the 30,000 or so people who flocked to Eastbourne
Seafront over the 2-day event.
All in all a good weekend shame the sun wasn’t out as much
as the previous year.
