Is the Project Working?
Have there been any success stories?
Apart from the experience of each of the young enthusiasts has enjoyed with a classic car for an extended loan, as recorded on earlier pages, some have bought a classic car of their own.
Sara-Jane Jordan: 1929 Ford Model A Phaeton in 2018.
Sara enjoyed her time with the old Ford as an excellent example of 1920’s / 30’s motoring. The gentle pace of travelling and the challenge of skilfully driving a car of that era all appealed to her.
So……as her year in charge of the Model A came to an end she bought a 1933 Morris Minor!
This is a car of the same era but smaller and, for her, more manageable if down on power compared to the bigger engined Ford.
Follow the links below to see her driving the Morris for a first trip ….note no bonnet fitted!. Great fun!
Sarah still yearned for the extra power and space of the Model A……..so ….after a long search she bought one! The chosen car , a 1930 Model A Phaeton, is in top condition and Sara was keen to attend the 2022 Old Ford Rally with the car to give Bob and Peter Garrett (owner of her loan car) a big surprise! Sara is the first CCLP driver to buy an identical car (ok different colour) to the one she had thoroughly enjoyed during her loan period. Well done Sara !
Richard Sanders: 1968 Morris Minor Traveller in 2019.
Richard has travelled far and wide ….even to Le Mans whilst enjoying the Minor.
He has now bought a Land Rover which will be of practical use and a classic in its own right.
In addition he bought a 1980’ss Honda motor cycle to use for fun and short journeys.
Rachel and Ray Cook: 1954 Ford Popular in 2019.
Ray Is Rachel Cook’s dad – Rachel had the 1954 Ford Popular in 2019. The whole family enjoyed having the Ford Popular so much that Ray went out and bought his own classic car!
Her dad’s chosen car is a 1936 Standard 10/12 . (See left). Without Rachel’s experience Ray may have missed out. He may be a slightly older convert to our hobby but very welcome. Enjoy your experience…..send us some stories of both cars out together….
1960 “Frogeye” Austin Healey Sprite.
Josh Bennett, again basked in the older luxury of the 1949 Alvis TA 14 and has gone for a 1960 Austin Healey Sprite (Frog Eye) ….a much more spartan car but great fun. His pleasure is heightened by being able to keep the Sprite in the family – which might not have happened without the experience of the CCLP.
1968 Volvo 123 Amazon.
Swedish beauty and performance attracted Tom Pocock into classic ownership after a year with the equally curvaceous Vauxhall Victor.
Austin 7 Special.
Following his extended loan with the Austin 7 Ruby saloon, Luke has bought this very sporty little special. He is looking forward to some open-air fun!
Morris Minor Traveller.
Phillip enjoyed the luxury of the 1954 Alvis TC saloon and recently bought the lovely Minor Traveller to enjoy with family and friends on local picnic outings….as well as carrying the occasional package. A very different car from the Alvis TC Phillip had on loan….but he has now joined the classic car scene…..and enjoying it too!
Holly and Scott Davies having had a 1934 Morgan on loan have been bitten by the three wheeler bug. They are now enjoying a running restoration of their own three wheeler Morgan.
