transport rally - 1954 Rolls-Royce Silver Dawn

Hundreds of visitors enjoyed the 9th annual Vintage and Classic Transport Rally at The Elephant public house in Shavington, writes Jonathan White.

Dozens of vehicles were on display on land at the rear of the premises.

As space was limited, the vehicle age limit was restricted this year to vehicles manufactured before and including 1980.

Classic and vintage car manufactures to view included Austin, Bentley, BMW, Daimler, Ford, Jaguar, Lanchester, MG, Morgan, Rolls-Royce, Rover, Triumph, and VW.

Classic motorbikes manufactures included BSA, Harley Davison, Lambretta, Norton, Triumph, and Yamaha.

Vehicles that attracted particular attention were an impressively loud Ford GT40, an immaculate 1954 Rolls-Royce Silver Dawn and a beautiful Triumph TR7 RV motorcycle.

There were also classic tractors from Ferguson, Fordson and MF; a bouncy castle; BBQ food served outside; and live music from the Salt City Jazz Men.

The Elephant public house was also open as usual.
