2020 Calendar

We will producing a calendar again next year and are seeking photos from our members. The photos need to be high resolution (usually file size around 2MB), landscape orientation and should be an interesting photo (not like an eBay listing). The photo can feature the interior or exterior of the car and there is no need for the car to be in perfect condition – get creative e.g. barn find shot.

Below are a few examples of what we are looking for from previous calendars. Please send your submissions to mocwebsite@hotmail.com with the subject ‘Calendar 2020’

BL Autumn Rally and AGM

Thank you to all those who attended our AGM at the BL Autumn Rally on 30th September – it was great to see you all. Congratulations to Paul Atkinson who won the Chairman’s Choice cup with his beautiful Sombrero early Mk1. Tim Ashworth was awarded the Longbridge Cup for his efforts in getting a stand at Tatton Park – which was amazing! Tim has now joined the committee as Northern Events Organiser and has lots of brilliant ideas so watch this space!
