Festival Of the Unexceptional

We're a Saloon club at our base. Our cars were quite unexceptional, they were grocery getters, people movers, sometimes the wife's, or a second car.

Some saloons aspired to be exceptional. The Ford Consul Cortina was a humble family car, until a Lotus Twin Cam with some suspension upgrades made it the Lotus Cortina. This car was exceptional.

This last weekend, Hagerty Insurance organizeed the Festival Of the Unexceptional, aka, ":Concours de l’Ordináire’", in Towcester Northamptonshire.

In the field of the "Unexceptional" was this the Mini Metro, owned by Princess Diana, reportedly given her by Prince Charles. This is the first time the car has left the Coventry Transport Museum

If this Ford made it over to this side of the Altantic and found today it would be most exceptional

I know some Marinas made it over here

I know Peels came in one at a time.
I wonder if there would be any discount for a half dozen.
