The organisers of the Peter James Insurance Bromley Pageant of Motoring are planning a massive Ford celebration for this year’s show when returns to Norman Park, Bromley, on Sunday 10th June. Two of the marques most popular models – the Anglia and the Cortina – will be celebrated by classic car clubs and visitors.
Its 45 years since the Ford Anglia ceased production in 1967, having been on the production line since 1939. The early Anglias were very simple vehicles with few features and the distinctive upright radiator. By the end of its time, the model had much more of an American influence. From the E04A to the Super Anglia 123E, Bromley Pageant will pay tribute to them all.
Another Ford celebrating an anniversary is the Cortina, which is 50 years old. The Cortina was Ford's mass-market and compact car and sold extremely well, making it very common on British roads but also Britain's best-selling car of the 1970s.
The Pageant is the biggest one-day classic vehicle show in the World, featuring around 3,000 automotives including classic cars, bikes, trucks, motorcycles, tractors, stationary engines and much more. From family favourites through to thoroughbred exotic sports cars, there is a marque to suit every passion, from Morris to Porsches, Triumphs to Jaguars. It’s a truly international show with Italian exotica, American Muscle, Japanese performance as well as the best of British coming together for the ultimate ‘great day out’.
The popular ‘One Make’ section continues where vehicles of each make and model can be entered and parked together. From Mini’s to Ferraris, around 1,000 cars featured in this area last year. Entries are now open for this incredible feature and entry for the vehicle is free (both driver and passenger require tickets) and includes a free show programme and plaque.
The organisers are continuing to expand the classic bike area and are welcoming more bikes to the show this year than ever before by offering free space to classic bike clubs. Also individual owners can get in for just £5. This area has constantly grown over the past few years and is now a significant part of the show.
The main arena will have fantastic entertainment with live music, special guests and car parades while those looking to buy can visit the huge Cars for Sale area. The Pageant also hosts one of the biggest classic vehicle trade shows in the UK with hundreds of Autojumble and trade stands selling the latest products, parts,services and new vehicles on display.
