A total of 730 return miles.
A Kallista 1.6 driven by a father and son duo George and Tony Ansell travelled all the way from Dover to be there. This must be a club record for a one day event!! Mick and Terry Laplain, Doug Batchelor and his wife Elsa, along with Pam and John Edwards also travelled quite considerable distances to join in.
Once again the Panther Car club provided one of the largest single club displays. We had a total of fourteen Panthers on display on what started out as a fairly dismal day, but soon brightened up to give several of us a bit of sunburn instead of windburn.
John and Molly Beale stood down after ‘Wheels 2005’ from organising on our behalf and from providing the sumptuous victuals at this event. The organising baton being taken up by Ray and Sue Smith. To further spread the load Area 12 members brought either food or drink or both to be shared by all Panther people. Needless to say the standard set by John and Molly has not diminished.

For the first time in this event the cavalcade didn’t take place, so we couldn’t show off our steeds. I don’t think we noticed too much as every one was busy eating, drinking or talking. Not far from our show position was the steam engine stand and although you would be hard pressed to find two identical Panthers how about two identical steam ploughing engines?
