and Highbridge Mayor Bill Hancock and Mayoress Frances Hancock awarded
a trophy to the owner of their favourite vehicle and chose a 1954
Daimler Dauphin owned by Paul Chamberlain from East Huntspill.
to Burnham-On-Sea.com, Paul said the winning vehicle was orginally
built as a Lanchester for the 1953 Motor Show but was never produced
and was converted into a Daimler by the factory. "The vehicle
is unique - the only one of its type in the world," added Paul.
Hancock added: "We were impressed at the quality and variety
of vehicles on show and it was great to see so many people out on
such a super evening enjoying the display."
