Project Description

Pride of Longbridge

The Pride of Longbridge is a car show that’s completely different to any other I’ve ever been to.

It has an amazing spirit that brings together the people that love the cars built at Longbridge with the men that made them, and also – uniquely – the local community who were thrown into turmoil when the factory closed in 2005. Over 6,000 people lost their jobs overnight.

The show celebrates the cars built over Longbridge’s 90-year production run, with Austin 7s, Minis, MGs and Rovers all proudly represented.

I also had the privilege of covering the event for Classic Car Buyer magazine.
