Fraserburgh Vintage Vehicle Rally Sunday 3rd June 2012


Recommended Posts

Today I cleaned the plugs on my 1951 American Farmall Cub, checked petrol oil and water and one crank and away the old girl went...oh what a feeling since I can't remember when she was started last year since she did not attend any rallies last year due to a faulty coil followed by many rainy shows which I did not exhibit at.

A wee video from my old camera....don't know if it will work or not :huh:

If not a couple of pictures from new camera

A very smart Cub you have there Bill, a credit to you and very desireable. I have spent today starting up and cleaning and checking over 2 of my tractors today, we have a little Club ploughing day tomorrow, weather permitting, forecast is not good and it's raining pretty heavy here now so we may have to call it off.

Thanks Tim I just hope she behaves as well at the show as she did yesterday at home...its great when a tractor starts on the first crank 8) The weather forecast looks good for Fraserburgh but being a coastal town it can still be a cold place.I hope you get a decent day for your club ploughing match...the weather makes or breaks these shows.

Yesterday morning I set of at 6am for the show and arrived to a fine dry day and 8 degrees at Fraserburgh...mind you I had all the shiny bits covered for transit just in case of rain ;D ;D

After unloading booking in I had a look around. The photos are just in the order taken on the day.

Inside the main exhibition hall there was a 300bhp Ford Fiesta RS WRC

A new theme at the show this year was a Farming of Yesteryear Display with tractors and implements which was very good apart from the way they were lined up like waiting to board a ferry....a herring bone set up would have been better for me the point and clicker but hey ho I'll pass on my (constructive criticism) at the next show I see the organiser Jim Gray at ;D ;D

It was a great day out and I don't know where the time went Chris. Yes it would be good to have a working day field but unfortunately no fields close by to the leisure center only sand dunes ;D ;D

Now on with the tractors.


Next in the same class as myself Vic Mathers trio of reds. Vic was the class award winner and also had another award which I suspect was the best restored tractor. Nothing for his DB50T or no award I could see...anyway a well deserved winner.

A rather nice original 1936 Twin City JTS...the primed tank spoils it but a new bottom had to be welded into the tank...ne thinks it would now best be weathered but the owner is undecided at present if its going to be given a full paint makeover :huh:

Now back inside and in the exhibition centre. Lorry driver Robbie Watson from Fraserburgh was exhibiting for the first time. He was very pleased being a spectator at the Aberdeen show last month he wants to exhibit next year if there is space for him.



Ian May was back as usual
