Friday evening was beautiful so we steamed to the Norfolk Jaguar Drivers Club BBQ just 3 miles away at Felthorpe Flying Club with the Model K. There were hundreds of cars there of every age but as always a Stanley will draw the biggest crowd. They were particularly fascinated by it being silent when driven, apart from the occasional "chuff".
Basil explained how it worked for 2 hours until the prize giving, then found he had been awarded the pre-war trophy by The Norfolk Vintage and Thoroughbred Vehicle Club; the post-war trophy went to a stunning Jaguar SS kit car. The cars were voted for by the entrants and they voted for "The car I would most like to take home with me but not necessarily the most immaculate or original".
That's the 3rd trophy the K has won this month, it's very gratifying to find people are appreciating the finish on the car which in itself is a nice reward for Basil's hard work.
