Crash Box Club Devon [Featured Account]
So last week, our featured account over on the social networking website Twitter was the lovely @CrashBoxDevon. Now for those of you who don’t know what this is about, and admitedly we were certainy one of those in that category, essentially Crash Box and Classic Car Cub is a multi-make classic car club with a variety of vehicles.
Now where we say vehicles we don’t mean your typical take out on the Monday-Friday jaunt to work, unless of course you can easily lay your hands on the parts. No these cars have a history some of them were very old and even required a handle to help get the cars going.
On the Sunday we drove up to take a look around, following on from Saturdays very inaccurate weather of heavy rain and thunder. The beauty of going to these sort of events is first of all parking on a field and then having to find your car when it comes to either getting the sandwiches or coming home.
Entrance fee to the event was very reasonable, like a lot of events I’ve been too I’m always aprehensive of the price, certainly as a newbie. £8 for adults, £5 for kids and £20 for a family ticket (2 parents 2 kids). What’s more this years event, Crash Box and Classic Cars were celebrating their 50th Anniversary.
Vehicles of all makes ranging from the popular and most commonly known Ford Capris, through to the vintage looking Porsches and delving further back into the realms when a handle was the only way to get the car started.
The event was absolutely huge, a whole range of different cars, trucks, bikes, lorrys, busses and even emergency vehicles. The atmosphere at the event was very buzzy, there was plenty to see and do and if you have kids, like myself, there have even catered to them with a dedicated childrens area filled with entertainment and prizes.
The food at the event, was very reasonaby priced and you could get your hands on some of the most common delicaseys including pasties, burgers, hot dogs and of course sandwiches and salds for those of you who are a little more greener.
At the event there was also a wide range of different stalls, products on sale ranged from your typical car parts and automotive bits and bobs through to clothes, bouncy castle and onto toy cars, car kits and more. There really was something for every car enthusiast at the event.
Overall, Boost Torbay had a fantastic time at the Crash Box & Classic Car Show and we would certainly recommend it to anyone and next year we are aiming to attend again.
Again we would like to say a big thank you to the organisers of Crash Box Club Devon for inviting us and we hope we will see you again in 2015.
