I went along to the SSAFA car show on Sunday and there was a fair turn out of vehicles on show and spectators to admire them.
The Mayor of Tameside, Councillor Joe Kitchen was there
And as well as serving troops and cadets quite a few of the 'old brigade'
There were army vehicles both modern....
....and not so modern
A line-up of American cars from the 1950s.....
......included this 1958 Ford Edsel Ranger, a car which lost the Ford Motor Company several hundred million dollars, the blame for which was put by some people on the unusual styling
This 1951 Ford Prefect was in pristine condition
A Triumph Roadster from the late 1940s as seen in the 'Bergerac' television series
An Austin 7 Ruby from the mid-1930s
And lastly a couple of Royal Enfields amongst the motorcycle contingent
