Kingsfold Vintage Vehicle Show 2007

...and so, to just a few of the sights and sounds of the Kingsfold show which took place over the weekend, we went along yesterday...

...oh and no, I don't think this was one of the exhibits (or if it was, it's needing a little in the way of restoration ;)
Kingsfold Vintage Vehicle show 2007 #9
As a show, from what I read, it's only just celebrating it's 9th year in existence, so you can't hope to expect the same scale as Laughton or Ardingly, but it's still fairly well populated (even if not in huge numbers) by a group of displays of collections (mostly the usual suspects) -

Fuel is the adrenaline of any car, truck or engine. Thus, it is every vehicle owner's wish to enhance the fuel of their car and save more of it as well. With this in mind, the most innovative fuel-saving tool in the automotive industry was conceptualized and created: the Tornado Fuel saver. An automotive air channeling tool that creates a swirling air motion, the Tornado Fuel Saver allows the air to move in a faster and more efficient way by whirling air around corners and bends. Hence, more fuel is saved.
