Prom Night July 07, 2015 15:18
On Saturday 27th June we had a prom night for our friends daughter (Imogen) and boyfriend (Roberto) at Hoveton Hall, near Wroxham, Norfolk. The evening entailed a 5.30pm meet for photographs followed by a forty minute drive to the Hall on a lovely Summer evening. Bizarrely, we arrived in pole position and poor Imogen was a little to embarrassed to be the first couple to pull up at the main reception area .... therefore she requested I did some manoeuvres in order to find ourselves in a less embarrassing position of third in the precession of interesting and varied vehicles in attendance. A large crowd of parents, friends well wishers etc had gathered around the main door with plenty of paparazzi so ... it really was a red carpet delivery ... all went well and my job was done .. yes well not quite ... the only road in to the hall was also the only road out ... so a couple of hours parked up, ensued.
Here I met several, car owners and some very interesting rides, including an un-restored 1931 Rolls Royce Phantom II Safari Wagon, a 3 window '58 Vauxhall Cresta and a '57 Chevrolet Sport Coupe to mention a few ... along the line of cars we saw Bubble Cars, John Deere Tractors, a Aston DB5, forklift trucks, a Kenworth Semi (Big Rig) ... a vintage Merry Weather 100 Fire Truck ... several split screen VW campers ... Mk 1 Zephyr Six, a Mustang Fastback, Triumph Stag Roadster ... it certainly was an interesting line up.
Some pictures follow ... I gather the evening was a total success and we were very glad to help out.
