The sun and crowds came out for Oban and District Classic Vehicle Club’s Fathers’ Day Show.
Organisers said Sunday’s lovely weather combined with lots of visitors and a good selection of vehicles helped make the free day at Corachie Clematis Garden Centre a huge success.
There were 35 vehicles and one motorcycle on show. Visitors voted the Mk1 Ford Cortina was the best liked car on the day. The winning motor is owned by club member Mel Burnip from Oban. Mel was awarded the Iain Campbell Memorial Trophy from Isobel Campbell.
The club thanked everyone who turned up on the day and all those who gave their support.
‘Thanks again to all who attended and helped this event to be the success it was, we hope to see you at more events we will be attending during the coming months.’
Others who helped, including Corachie Clematis, were West Coast Loos, which donated a toilet for the day, also club members who worked hard at the BBQ and Grants the Butchers from Taynuilt, which supplied the burgers.
Thanks also went to Allan Kill from Derek Wilson Carriers for transporting the club tent and the BBQ equipment to and from the venue.
There will be more classic fun to come with MOTORFEST 2022, scheduled for Sunday September 18 in Station Square, Oban.
