Tatton Park, Cheshire 2008 and 2009

Some pictures sent to me by Leonard Pennington of the Portafolds in the camping field, last year and this, at the Tatton Park Classic Car Show at Knutsford, Cheshire.

N.B. I'm thinking about having a portafold.co.uk stand at Tatton Park next year (2010) as long as it doesn't clash with any other shows and if there's any interest...

I love the inside of your portafold, is it fabric draped from the ceiling and down the sides? I'm trying to figure out how you did it?

You would need a bigger cabinet than that Matthew for all that cider you would take to the show wouldn't you? :lol:

But, yes it's a fantastic idea Leonard :D I would never have thought of it!!

Hi,

We would love to come to the 2010 meet, at Tatton Park. We have just bought our Portafold and it's in the process of being upgraded inside. We live in Runcorn so it is not too far way.

Let us know what date you are thinking of and hopefully ours will be ready in time to come to the meet.

Hope to see you there.

Jan and Dave

Nice Reliant :D

I thought a Portafold was just one big beer cabinet on wheels :lol:
