Festival of the Unexceptional 2019 20th July

#1 Post by swanndoggz » Thu Apr 18, 2019 2:47 pm

"Hagerty’s Festival of the Unexceptional celebrates the cars that were the workhorses of their day: the base model saloons, hatchbacks and estates that were sold in their millions between roughly 1979 and 1996, and are now so rare."(quote from the wesbite)

Ive been to this one most years its been on and its actually one of my favorite shows of the year. A show full or mundane tat what couldn't be better!, its free to book and always has a good turn out think a few 200s were there last year, somehow felt too posh when i took my 220 a few years ago.

here is the page to book http://www.unexceptionalcars.co.uk/

Lets see if we can get some more 200's

A very good show but the age cut off used to be 1989 meaning it only covered SD3s and very early R8s. It is good to see it has changed to 1996.

You can paw the 620 Si at FOTU - P394DOH I may be looking to shift it on after that, but after taking it down to the MoT station today (after a month off the road whilst I fixed everything) via a healthy detour which may have accidentally included some country lanes, I'd forgotten what a wafty and sumptuous old barge this is...only had it three months, and with 54K on the clock and a Honda engine, it's barely even run in yet.

It passed :)

To be fair, I wouldn't worry too much about age - drop them a message on Facebook - they seem to be quite flexible on the reg year as long as it's something a bit different. Don't recall seeing any cabbies there last year.
