[ EVENT ] The STEAM Classic Car Club visits Classic Dashboards.
Classic Car Clubs can visit Classic Dashboards and discover Simon Lorkin’s work.
Twenty or so beautiful classic cars from the STEAM Classic Car club stopped by to visit Simon Lorkin, experienced craftsman antique furniture and dashboard restorer on the 10th of July for a demonstration of his artisanal work on classic cars. From his workshop hidden in the Normandy countryside there were explanations (without giving away his ‘secrets’) about not only his wooden dashboard restoration but about his painted wood effect for metal dashboards and interiors.
As with other classic car clubs who’ve visited Classic Dashboards all the cars parked on the large lawn, all ligned up. Forty or so club members enjoyed one of their dozen or so outings of the year. Their recent one included a trip to England to go to the Dorset Steam Fair.
The president of the club Mr Malbron sais “We wanted to find something unusual and within the subject of classic cars when we found Simon’s website and that he restores classic car dashboards. We’ve received a warm welcome and very good explinations of the work”
Some car clubs choose to stay and have drinks with us or even picnic on the lawn.
