Vintage Rally 2002

Gosfield Essex

The rain managed to hold off for most of the weekend, and although the public did not come in droves on Saturday, Sunday was very busy. There was plenty to see, with  Steam engines and Rollers, around 70 Stationary Engines and the usual Tractors, Classic Cars, Motorbikes, Push Bikes, Military Vehicles etc. all in all a lot for the public to see.

There were also quite a number of "cag" stalls with something for almost anyone.

My Pumpset doing its usual thing, (or not in the case of this shot).

Rob Vince, relaxing behind his Wolseley which he gave an airing for the weekend with of course La La

This is Richard Hill with his Villiers and Argosy pump. Richard is 14 and it is good to see such enthusiasm.

An superbly restored Lister A, this won best engine, and best Lister at the show. This was restored by M Barnard of Gt Dunmow. 

A 3 1/4 hp Amanco 1921 vintage owned by T Boreham of Sible Hedingham.

A Bradford "Amanco" 2 1/2 hp owned by D.Penn of Corringham. I think this was made under License from Amanco.

A 1 1/2 hp Stover KA owned by D. Kirby from Gt Bardingfield.

A lovely little Stuart Turner generating set. This was not in the program.
