Hagerty Festival Of The Unexceptional 2015
A Concours de l’Ordinare
In Hagerty’s own words:
Fed up of car shows full of unobtainable million-pound Ferraris, Lamborghinis and Astons? Celebrate the normal cars instead: praise the Princess, glorify the Granada, applaud the Allegro and cheer the Chevette! Come and salute the best examples of the most ordinary cars of late 1960s through to mid-1980s Britain.
What do Hagerty class as unexceptional?
They will raise a toast to the cars that used to be in every driveway, but now are simply vanishing. With more Lamborghini Diablos on the road than all the Hillman Hunters put together, Hagerty will aim to celebrate and recognise our endangered automotive heritage.
In short, they need to be those cars that used to be everywhere, but now just aren’t seen. Nothing too flashy, as we love the base models. The condition of the vehicle must be as good as new where possible. Please remember that the car the rest of the world might refer to as unexceptional is actually, we believe, truly exceptional.
