The Slightly Delayed Big 60th+1 Birthday Party of the Portafold (12th International Portafold & Ansfold Gathering) (i.e. 2021)

Help us set a new world record at the huge 60th+1 birthday party!

Ironically, the current record is 59 Portafolds and Ansfolds (we set that at the 2016 Newbury Retrofestival), so we want to smash this by getting well over 70 there this time. We have a lovely area that will take that number of caravans and the show itself is a fantastic event that will not disappoint. There really is something for the whole family.

So put the dates 13th, 14th, 15th of August 2021 in your diary now and get those dates booked off work early. Be part of a record breaking event that will go down in history.

Show Address: Newbury Showground, Priors Court, Hermitage, Thatcham, West Berkshire, RG18 9QZ

Don't book direct with the show organisers, just contact me (07771544419) to get your pitch saved.

Which came first? Portafold or Edelbrock?

Some people who are into their American and custom cars might have noticed that the Edelbrock badge looks incredibily similar to the Portafold badge.

But which came first?

I've been in touch with Edelbrock and got the exact time it was first used by them, and as I know the year they were first used on the Portafolds was approx 1967, I now know the answer.

The Portafold badge came first! :thumbup:

Edelbrock first had this badge:

Then in 1975 they changed to this one:

Then in 1980 they changed to this one:

Wanted: Any original Portafold, Ansfold or Mini-Motel brochures, adverts or magazine articles.
Also, any chassis numbers for the above caravans!
