Excursion to Ambergate
Members of our Grumpy Old Men group were out and about again at Ambergate recently. They visited the ‘Great British Car Journey’ exhibition, which displays around 150 cars, all made in the UK, mainly up to the 1990s.
There were also a number of large banners which portray some of the advertising of the period, often quite stylish. The commentary which visitors can listen to narrated a lot of the history of the industry, and its ups and downs, of which there were quite a few over the decades.
Earlier cars, such as the Austin 7, looked very small, but some of the bigger cars of the 1960s and 70s were sometimes surprisingly large.
It is also possible to go for a drive in an old car around the site, but by this time it was approaching lunchtime in the conveniently sited café!
