Glasgow Museum of Transport Show - Saturday 30th July 2011

Perfect weather graced the Glasgow Museum of Transport Classic Car Show, an inaugural event as part of the official opening of the new museum, it is hoped will become an annual show. /.... 22 Clan Minis attended, providing a colourful and dazzling display right beside the main entrance in the blazing sun.

Plenty of Clan families came along of all ages ranging from around 1 to 65!
The show and excellent museum was very busy throughout the day with a great crowd. This was not the conventional car show in that many visitors were international tourists visiting Glasgow and enjoying a day at the museums wonderful site beside the Clyde (with it’s Tall ship) only with the bonus of the Clan, military vehicles, RWD club, Capri club and an interesting variety of classics.
The free entry museum has a nice and accessible ’59 on display along with a huge variety of displays to interest every visitor. Ship building and steam trains were my favourite. Being an unusual show, with scope to be much bigger, it is hoped it becomes a regular on the calendar. Visitor comments, particularly from those new to the classic car world, made it obvious.
The minis, as always, being a huge hit with all ages and nationalities. The tartan mini probably the star for the bulk of family photos.

Beach volleyball was also popular as were the folk walking around in Victorian attire!
This event and a visit to the museum, is to be encouraged.
A great day at a wonderful venue.

Congratulations to the events team who can be seen in glorious colour in the Mini magazine summer issue.

Many thanks to Pete Little for this run report!
