Russ Harvey reports on the Footman James Coffee & Chrome show, which apparently attracted an entry of 1,000 assorted classic vehicles.
The ‘Footman James Coffee & Chrome’ meet at the Chateau Impney took place on Sunday, 3rd July, 2022. One thousand vehicles had been entered, with the good weather ensuring a large number of them turned up. The vehicles came in all shapes and sizes, ranging from classic cars, bikes, military vehicles and scooters, to supercars, camper vans, trucks, kit cars and everything in between! Furthermore, you even got a free bacon roll at this completely free event. Among the vast array of classics, I went in search of some of the more interesting and unusual light commercials, and must say that I wasn’t disappointed with what I found.
The Chateau and its estate, situated near Droitwich, offers a superb venue for classic vehicle events like this one and I, for one, thought it was one of the best classic shows that I’ve ever attended. There was such a range of vehicles, of all types and ages, but I have to say that the star of the show for me was a 1996 ex-BT Ford Escort which, I’m happy to report, is still a working vehicle.
