With normality slowly and cautiously returning, so do outdoor shows!
We were delighted to be contacted by the Robert Burns Birthplace Museum and asked if we would come along and display some vehicles as they opened their doors to their waiting public.
There of course were the mandatory Covid restrictions such as a one way system and Track & Trace within their facilities but as you’d expect from our National Trust, the organisation was impeccable. So, onto the show!
Over 40 Members vehicles were there on the day (full capacity), covering most of the lifespan of the motorcar – everything from a 1921 Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost to a 2006 Ferrari F430 (with everything in between)
It was great to see members, old and new, mingling and chatting about cars – There was a great turn out of visitors to the show and they got some great, Covid-Safe access to the cars and their owners as well as getting to hear them in a few instances (Music to our ears!)
The visitors enjoyed the Museum, Gift Shop & Cafe facilities at the Museum too, and our Members pass on our thanks to the Museum management & staff for their warm hospitality.
We were also approached by an Alloway couple, Marion & Tom Bate who are looking for a new home for their 1972 Volkswagen Camper Westvalia T2 Camper.
We have no information on price or condition, but if you are interested in finding out more, you can contact them on (07787) 372398.
The National Trust for Scotland, in common with many other organisations and businesses, has not had it easy over the last year or so, with Covid impacting them severely. They boast a magnificent range of properties and museums that are well worth a visit (or more!) and given that it’s unlikely many of us will be travelling abroad this year, they offer some cracking possibilities for your leisure time over the coming months.
