Distinguished Gentlemen Driving Dapper
The weather was with us and we headed off on the A71 through the valley and on towards Strathaven before pointing the cars towards East Kilbride and Newhouse to arrive at the Greenside Garden Centre to enjoy the ‘Cars ‘n’ Coffee’ event that Lanarkshire Classic Car Club always run on the last Sunday of the month – Grateful thanks to them for welcoming us and allowing the meet to be our destination on the day!
We met more members at the event and after parking, very quickly descended on the garden centre restaurant to sample the tea / coffee’s & bacon rolls (superb as always!)
The ‘Cars ‘n’ Coffee’ event is always well attended and attracts an incredibly wide array of vehicles spanning the decades and styles – truly something for everyone.
There is a ‘walk around’ video of the day below for your enjoyment and a photo gallery of the shots Rob Davis took on the day!
The main purpose of the day for us was to enjoy the cars and raise some funds for Men’s Health charities in the process whilst ensuring we #DriveDapper
I came across the ‘Distinguished Gentleman’s Drive’ initiative a little late in the day to make a bigger thing of it, but it will become an annual event held worldwide and I’d love us to make it part of our event calendar for 2022.
After a wander and a chat, the day was over all too quickly and we headed off back to whence we came with three of us having a pit-stop at ‘The Heron’ for a cuppa on the way.
Thanks for your company today Gents – It was a lovely wee day to take the ‘B’ for a spin and a great cause to support whilst we did it.
Thanks to everyone who had donated online so far and to our generous members who donated on the day!
You can click ‘HERE’ to see how we did / are doing and add a few shillings yourself if you’re able!
Put it in the calendar – the event date for The Second Distinguished Gentleman’s Drive is Sunday, September 25th, 2022! We are looking forward to having you drive dapper with us again!
All the best
