The year of the Gordon Keeble Half Century

The principal event for the year was the 50 year celebrations that took place at Eastleigh,
 Southampton;  they commenced with a guest appearance at Beaulieu on the Friday beforehand
 The cars arrived at the Potter’s Heron from Thursday onwards. Unfortunately the pre-arranged 50 cars was not to be with one not leaving Holland, another arriving on a Trailer from Yorkshire after a Herculean  effort by the owner.  A visit to The Vyne near Basingstoke, a National Trust Property,  had been arranged for the early arrivers.
Friday morning, dull and overcast but not raining, saw the cars assembling on the roof car park at Eastleigh Airport with the Press in attendance.  Leaving the Airport precints, the convoy of Gordon Keebles travelled to Beaulieu to line up in the grounds next to the national Motor Museum there.
Saturday morning had a visit to Mottisfont Abbey followed by an assemblage of all the cars in front of the Southampton Civic Centre for the benefit of the Southampton population. This was rewarded by great interest in “their local car”.
On Sunday morning, the cars were taken to Winchester for the morning - again much local interest was generated. After lunch the procession moved to Eastleigh High Street which was filled from end to end with 47 Gordon Keeble cars making a stunning and memorable sight and sound.

A memorable week end and possibly the greatest number of Gordon Keebles ever assembled.

The cars being assembled at the Southampton Civic Centre.  As the cars arrived from the morning activities, theree reached a point when there was only just enough room to display them all. They certainly created great interest with both sight and sound

On Sunday morning, Broadway in the centre of Winchester was closed off and the cars arranged echlon fashon in front of the Civic building.  The considerable interest from the gathering crowds with the Cathedral bells ringing close by made for a memorable day.

And finally a splendid cake to round
               off the celebrations
