Last weekend, E-Type UK and DM Historics hosted a tremendously successful Coffee, Cakes and Classic Cars gathering at its facility at North Frith Farm, Hadlow, Kent. A diverse range of classic cars were in attendance, alongside over 250 enthusiastic owners and members of the public.
Guests enjoyed conversing with fellow enthusiasts over hot drinks and a slice of cake surrounded by some of DM Historics’ latest stock of classic cars. From a freshly restored 1960 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud II DHC by Mulliner, 1954 Aston DB2/4 Mk 1 going through a full repaint, 1965 Ford Lotus Cortina Mk1 FIA spec racer and a timeless 1972 Range Rover Suffix A, there was plenty to see. E-Type UK also proudly showcased its current selection of wonderfully restored Jaguar classics outside its in-house concours restoration centre, ranging from Series 1 to Series 3 variants of the E-type model.
Members of the public bolstered the ranks with some stunning privately-owned classics at the Duck House Barn – with over 60 vehicles from countless marques, eras and genres. They were then able to experience some of DM and E-Type UK’s most recent projects at their leisure, with the teams behind both workshops on-hand to chat to attendees and show them round each and every project-in-progress.
Founder Marcus Holland commented: “It was such a pleasure to open up our doors and catch up with likeminded car enthusiasts, but more than that if was a joy to see the huge variety of machinery brought down by proud owners for everyone to see. We are already looking forward to our next classic car meet which promises to be even bigger and better than our inaugural event.”
