Old Ford Rally – British Motor Museum 2022

As a supporter of the Rootes Archive Centre Trust (RACT) my main reason for being at Gaydon on Sunday 17 July 2022 was to attend the inaugural Rootes Heritage Day, being held on the same day as the ‘Old Ford Rally’.

Where I had parked my car meant that I encountered the Ford Rally first – what a massive array of pre-1995 Fords were on display. I had been to the BMC & Leyland Show the previous week, which was very well attended by both display vehicles and visitors, I got the impression that the Ford Rally was even bigger in terms of the cars on display. One of the reasons for this particularly large gathering was that the Capri 280 Group was celebrating its 35th anniversary. Being the “petrolhead” that I am I couldn’t walk through this wonderful collection of Ford cars, many that I remembered from my youth (Ford 100E, if you’re wondering), without taking some photos. Here they are –
