THE CRAYFORD HEINZ 57 WOLSELEY HORNETS AT MINI FAIR
Perhaps the most fascinating chapter in Crayford's long history is the Heinz 57 story. There is so much to be told about the competition of the 57 Wolseley Hornet Mini prize convertibles. In 2016 some 50 years later we are celebrating these unique cars with a special gathering of them at Mini Fair 2016 on the 31st January.
Today 41 cars survive around the world with about half of them still roadworthy.
Trevor Ripley and Bill Bell will be organising the display and will be available on the day to chat about these desirable Mini variants.

Such a stunning Classic Mini was available to won for just £1 at Mini Fair 2015. The Mini City ws in very original condition with only one owner from new and only 30,000 miles on the clock as well. A fantastic Mini to win for anyone.
A big crowd gathered for the presentation and raffle draw. The time had come and the winning raffle ticket was drawn out of the box by young Amy. Danny was ready with his watch, one minute to claim the prize!!!, Dave Hollis, after dragging out the tension even further, started to read out the numbers on a green ticket 5......6.......3 A shout was heard and a gentleman came forward to claim his prize.
Kevin Woodhull had the winning ticket who very kindly passed the keys onto his son Tom Woodhull, who in turn said the Mini was for his own young son Riley, Watch the fun and the drama unfold below via our You Tube video.

A very sucessfull Mini Fair 2015 again saw a top quality Pride Of Ownership, and superb display's by Mini Clubs using 'London' as the theme. I was sent out by our Head Judge to try and decide a winning Mini from the Pride Of Ownership and the Simply Redz display. At one point I had narrowed it down to 10 choices! Was it the Paul Smith Mini with the Mini trailer that included a sink and a hob! Maybe the Mini-Busa or Mollie the MINI, Luke Billings stunning creation or the Moke in the Simply Redz. Mind you the incredible wide arched Clubman Estate with an MX5 underneath wasclose as well. However Pride Of Ownership is not just about the car we all love but the owner as well. We just thought Malcolm Huxley with his superb yellow Rally Mini. Malcolm is so enthusiastic about his Mini and of course it is a Corgi model as well. The details on the Mini is just amazing. What came first the model or the Mini?
The Pride Of Ownership was again sponsored by Branson Automotive who presented all the class winners with an Auto Glym pack and a cheque for £100 from the BMC.
As always the various Mini Clubs put on an wonderful display using London as the theme. Where they get the ideas from is incredible. With the Abbey Road crossing and the London Eye making an appearnce, plus various people dressed as Big Ben, a Post Box, Telephone Box, Beefeaters and more the whole thing was taken in very good spirit and great fun. If you ever wondered how the Mini would look in the London Underground this was the place to be. Well done to all who entered. The winners are listed below.
