We are a traditional classic car owners club for owners of small Ford sidevalves built between 1932 and 1962.

 

We cover a vast range of vehicles from the early Ford Model Y saloons, right through to the 107E Ford Prefect (with the OHV engine from the 105E Anglia) including all vans, commercials and specials based upon the ubiquitous four cylinder side-valve engine.

Old Ford Rally, Gaydon, August 2020

Old Ford Rally at the British Motor Museum, Gaydon. Despite the postponement to August 23rd the rally was well attended with all manner of Fords. The FSOC area had the usual culprits attending so it was good to catch since last November's NEC show. I didn't count up actual number of sidevalves but we filled the space available plus a few others here and there. We were graced with no less than three local Bucklers.

Over the Newport Transporter Bridge

In mid September an intrepid group with seven cars set off from Bristol to visit the Newport Transporter Bridge, built in 1906.   Accommodating staff gave a tour of the engine house and walk up one tower and happily despite the height all returned unscathed! All seven cars squeezed onto the gondola in one load (which accommodates only 4 modern cars).  More details in October Sidevalve News.
