British Motor Heritage Museum Visit
30th June 2001
DROC-wide event took place on Saturday 20th May 2001 when seven Rushes and ten people
visited the British Motor Heritage centre at Gaydon in Warwickshire.
Despite a dodgy weather forecast, we had a mostly dry day. A few
cars got a bit damp on the way to Gaydon but no-one was complaining. As this was
pre-arranged with BMH, we not only benefitted from a reduced entry fee but we had reserved
parking right outside the main entrance.
We were treated to a personalised tour of the
musuem's exhibits and learned a lot more, both facts and gossip, than we would have got on
our own. Our tour guide, John, lifted many bonnets for us to appreciate the engineering
masterpieces of times gone by.
Everybody had a good time
and the chance for a group photo outside the museum doors afterwards couldn't be passed
