Tamworth Heritage Weekend, Tamworth, Staffs. UK. 14th September 2008.

Set 1: 1 - 10.

The oldest vehicle in the display, a 1949 Reliant 8cwt van (Old Red) driven by Geoff Payne and loaned for the day by the Black Country Living Museum in Dudley.

The second oldest vehicle in the display, a 1961 Reliant Regal Mk VI 5 cwt van (Lucie) driven by Elvis Payne. I thought she would be the slowest vehicle there but is quite sporty when compared with Old Red.

1970 Reliant Regal Supervan III 21E (Snoopy) owned by Elvis Payne. The vehicle is still off the road and needs restoring though thanks to Pete and Dee Gnosill, I was able to trailer it over to the show.

1974 Reliant Robin “Super” 750 (Gwenn) owned by Elvis Payne. Unfortunately come the big day the car just did not want to start and so again thanks to Pete and Dee, we managed to get the car to the display.

1990 Reliant Robin LX (New Blue) driven by Mark Barker for Geoff Payne. Having done 5,500 miles to the North Cape and back in June 2008, the 40 mile trip to Tamworth was no problem at all.

2002 B&N Plastics Robin BN-1.  The third vehicle made by B&N Plastics when they made Reliants under licence.

1987 Reliant Scimitar SS1 driven by Sue Cropper.

1970 Reliant Scimitar SE5 GTE driven by Bob Coles ... who it happens, used to be one of my teachers 30 years ago.  He had the car then and funny really that thinking back we used to make fun of his “plastic car” ... and now I have three of them.

1989 Middlebridge Scimitar GTE driven by Mick Gauthran.

1972 Reliant Scimitar SE5 driven by Dave Tillotson.
