For example, a 1913 Armis Motorcycle — the only complete model in the world — was brought along by owner Baz Hodge. It was awarded ‘best British bike in show’.
The Reg Cooper Trophy for the ‘best exhibit in the whole show’ was presented to the 1907 Stanley Steamer, owned by Terry Fry of Plymouth.
The ‘best commercial vehicle’ award went to a 1955 Austin Lorry owned by the Vincent family of Fraddon.
