Thursday 11th August 2016.        (Photos and words thanks to Tanya Field).
Ray Coles Princess on display at Templars Square Shopping Centre, Oxford.

This morning has been a Princess morning with visitors recalling their Princess stories, both working on them at Cowley and of owning them.

The first photo is of Bob who accompanied the Wimbledon Princesses on their duties at Wimbledon and so long as the Princesses were behaving, he could watch the tennis. He told me that the models driving the Princesses with the players would hoot their horns to get the crowds to move, but the neighbours complained so they were told to rev their engines instead. The only problem was the Princesses were automatic and the models would end up driving into the Princess in front of them! This meant that Bob had to return to Cowley to collect a load of bumpers.

The second photo is of Neil who is from New Zealand and learned to drive over there in a Princess. He was delighted to see Ray's as part of the display.

Email recently received from members Chris and Claire Tuck.


"Count us in for the meet up at Coventry Motor Museum. It will be myself and Claire attending and barring any misfortune we will be in the Princess.

I had a rare Saturday off work today and we took the Wedge over to the Whitacre and Shustoke show. There was quite a nice array of vehicles there, especially old tractors and lots of animals, so we were in our element! It's always amazing the response the Princess gets at such events despite being surrounded my much more exotic and valuable cars. I've attached a few photos - feel free to use them if you wish".

Regards
Chris.
