Plant Oxford – The home of Mini

Last month, Members met up for their first tour of 2020, at the Mini Factory Plant in Oxford. Unfortunately, the small museum was not available to us because of a press function, but members enjoyed seeing the new electric Mini being driven around by the press. Nonetheless, they all piled into the tour bus and…

A day valeting in miniature

Even small cars need to be valeted before going on display. This year, the museum is putting on a new display called Motoring in Miniature – the Toys of your Childhood, where they will display a range items that children would have played with linked to motoring. The display will include a range of pedal…

London to Brighton Veteran Car Run 2019

Where can I start? Firstly the excitement and anticipation of the event was made that much better when in October 2018 my wife and I were entering a state of excitement following the  Annual dinner about the forthcoming event in London the following month, only to be slightly concerned by the days and the dates…

A new year, a new decade, a new Social Programme!

Traditionally, due to a few details requiring confirmation with some suppliers, this makes it difficult to get our Social Programme posted to you in time as a stocking filler for Christmas – no matter how hard we try! But what we can do is share with you, the events we have planned and the dates,…

Around 20 cars were on show at Palace House, with members happily catching up with each other and sharing details about their cars. A big thank you to the…

Aston Martin Works

Due to the rich coach-building tradition in Newport Pagnell along with the niche skill set predominant in the area, it made sense for the luxury brand Aston Martin to choose this area for its HQ in the early 60’s – and for the members of Beaulieu One Hundred to have The Heritage centre on their…

Rolls Royce & Solent Sky Museum

A highly recommended visit if you haven’t been, was the recent visit to Solent Sky Museum where 17 members were able to have the Museum to themselves and found out all about the incredible story of aviation in Hampshire and the Solent region. It is also the home of the Hampshire Police and Fire Heritage…

Studio 434

Britain’s largest private car collection. This is the claim by Rodger Dudding for his Studio 434 collection situated in Potters Bar just north of the M25. I first wrote up his cars in November 2012 when they numbered some 150, now it’s over 400. Rodger does not claim this to be a museum collection, it’s…
