Vintage Cars & Motorcycle Rally at Cropton in August 2009
The Gathering of Vintage Cars & Motorcycles was an excellent day and I am sure that all whom attended really enjoyed themselves. The weather was very kind and allowed ‘Al Fresco’ dining at the back of the village hall.
The Cars and Motorcycles started arriving from 11 a.m. onwards. Most of the vehicles had met in the Stokesley area before coming down to Cropton.
There was quite a show of Motorcycles on the Tarmac. All the bikes were immaculately presented and helpful owners were on hand for a chat.
No offence to anyone else but this old Green Ford truck really caught my eye. I could imagine enjoying driving down Route 66 in this brilliant vehicle.
The message was loud and clear. “Y’all have a nice day now”. And we did!
Lunchtime turned into a “Street Party”. A lot of tables were pushed together and it worked a treat. It made a really good atmosphere.
Of course, viewing the cars is always a treat. Lots of photos were taken and probably a lot of reminiscing about the old days.
A nice touch, that added to the day, was the presence of the Stape Original Band. It is good to just sit back and enjoy a few well know tunes whilst basking in the sunshine. As always, thank you to them.
Many thanks to everyone that attended this gathering. It is becoming a real highlight of the village calendar. I hope you all enjoyed yourselves!
