There was a car at this event that was quite special. It was listed as a 1947 Ford Special, though it might have more accurately been dated nearer to 1951 when it emerged from its construction.

...

Thanks for the extra info, it was an interesting looking car, pretty big thing too!

A lot of people on the weekend were referring to it as the 'Swampy Special' as I gather that was pretty much literally what it was dragged out of before being restored.

I'm hoping to make it back to Longford next year for this event again so hopefully it will be as good as last time, no idea what I'll be driving though.

I'm heading back, entering the S14 again as everything else is in a million pieces.
