Garage crawl and a special request

The Club was contacted by Jordan who asked whether we could organise a ride for his grandfather for his 87th birthday. Scott Staples kindly obliged!

One very happy grandfather:Scott 13 3

With Jordan and his sister in the back:Scott 13

On the road:Scott 13 2

Jordan reported afterwards: “I can’t tell you how excited he was. He didn’t stop talking about it all night. So thank you so much.”

Well done Scott!

Demonstrating a Model T to a group of very excited cubs. This was done to coincide with the centenary of cub scouts – the kids are learning about how things were 100 years ago. They were very enthusiastic despite the 38 degree heat!
