Classic trucks at the Fenland Classic Vehicle Show

Posted by Chris Graham on 11th July 2024

We report from this year’s Fenland Classic Vehicle Show, that was held at the Ramsey Rural Museum on May 16th.

Fenland Classic Vehicle Show

The Fenland Classic Vehicle Show was well supported by local commercial vehicle enthusiasts, and the interesting exhibits on display included this Scammell Crusader and the BRS Bristol.

The Fenland Classic Vehicle Show, held at the Ramsey Rural Museum on Sunday, May 16th attracted strong support from the local lorry fraternity. This event started as a classic car display to support the annual bus running day at nearby Whittlesey, but a few years ago it became a separate event in its own right, albeit happening at the same time as the bus rally and with free bus services linking the two.

This year the bus show was cancelled due to a lack of entries. The classic vehicle show, however, continues to thrive and attract strong support. CVC Editor Peter Simpson was entrusted with judging the 200+ classic cars in attendance.

Newly-restored 1946 Bedford O.

There was also one attraction which we’ve never seen before at any vehicle event – a wrestling display.

On the lorry front we were particularly impressed by the Bedford O entered by Alan Robinson and Fred Webb, and we’ll be running a full feature on this restoration later in the year. Also signed up for a feature was Martin Webb and his BRS Bristol tractor unit which has been in preservation for some time but which Martin has bought and given a make-over. We were also pleased to meet up once again with our old friend Craig Hallam and his famous ‘one in a million’ Scania 113M.

Craig Hallam’s million-mile Scania 113M is still going strong!
