RedWharfBay 

Folk lore tells us that the idea for the Land Rover came when Maurice Wilks strolled along the coast at Red Wharf Bay with his brother Spencer. Maurice sketched the outline of the vehicle in the sand, and the rest is history!

Following the successful and very nearly dry Singleton Park Classic Car Show on May Day Monday, our attention now turns to the imminent Cardiff City Show! This is probably the most local show for the majority of our members, and will take place on Sunday 21 May 2017 at Cardiff City Stadium!

A few weeks ago the sun came  out briefly, which can mean only one thing - Spring is here, and with it the start of the car show season! Dust off your flasks, deck-chairs and waterproofs!

Those attending February's meeting will have noticed one very obvious thing - we have outgrown our existing monthly venue!

New website

 

Our existing website has served us well for many years now, but like many of us is starting to show signs of old age, and being a little contankerous on occasions. As such, we have spent the Autumn and Winter evenings working on a replacement!

Solihull visit

 

Our club is very much family oriented and so it was particularly encouraging that when we visited Solihull recently we took with us something that has very much been missing on previous factory visits: a female club-member!

On Sunday 19 September the club attended The Big Welsh Car Show, held at Margam Park. The event was in its second year, and is growing nicely.
