If you are local to Emsworth you may have noticed we occasionally deliver our furniture in our fabulous 1939 Morris 10cwt truck. Being one of only a couple left on the road, it certainly turns a few heads and you may have noticed it's beautiful signwriting (thank you Signmaster of Emsworth!) on our homepage.
So it is with great pleasure that we can announce that yesterday Martin's pride and joy was recognised by the public as a thing of beauty, winning "Best in Show", after a public vote, hosted by Stewart Miller and Peter James Insurance at Goodwood Revival.
After the initial free entry all finalists were picked by none other than Sir Stirling Moss - a huge complement in itself! Up against extremely stiff competition, including amongst others, a 1953 Jaguar, 1964 Triumph, 1962 Aston Martin and a 1952 Rolls Royce, we were, shall we say, slightly dubious of our chances. It would seem however, that the nostalgia our truck evokes stirred something in the public, and compelled them to vote both online and at the show.
A BIG thank you to all of you who voted - you made our day - and gave a perfect birthday gift to Martin! (We'll let you know when he finally stops grinning!)
