Riviera Classic Car Show
 

Members of Torbay Old Wheels Club are sorry to have to confirm that we cannot go ahead with the Riviera Classic Car Show on Paignton Green this year because of circumstances beyond our control. These are  related to the use of the North Green and our concerns that the safety of both people and cars couldn't be guaranteed. We'd like to thank everybody who has supported us over the years and hope to be back in 2025.

If you applied to exhibit at the Paignton Green Show, please be patient we will be in touch. At the moment volunteer illness is slowing us down. Cheques have not been banked. We will be reimbursing those who paid by bank transfer unless you would like your payment to be donated to the Devon Air Ambulance.

Member's car of the Month

Member's name

This is my 1962 Ford Zodiac that I bought from a bloke in London who was the second owner and had had it for 30 years. It was in good condition but I still had to do this that and t'other to get it right.

We need a lot more text than this.

A car tested by the British magazine The Motor had a top speed of 87.9 mph (141.5 km/h) and could accelerate from 0-60 mph (97 km/h) in 17.1 seconds. A fuel consumption of 21.5 miles per imperial gallon (13.1 L/100 km; 17.9 mpg‑US) was recorded. The test car cost £968 including taxes.

We should be able to accommodate up to 150 words.

Our Activities

 

We enjoyed visiting lots of shows in our old vehicles throughout 2023.  We’re still out and about through the darker months with breakfast get-togethers and occasional organised drives using our old cars if the weather’s suitable.

We’re now looking forward to more fun in the sun this summer.
