Kemt's Classic Car Show September 2019 at Aylesford Priory

Kent's Classic Car Show was an opportunity for car enthusiasts from all over the county to meet and display their prized vehicles, browse the autojumble and trade stands and prove the value of their cars by entering into the competitions.

Haynes Ford attended the September show with four of Ford's performance vehicles and an MS-RT Transit Custom.


Making its return to the Aylesford Priory was the Ranger Raptor. This off roader has been seeing a lot of press since its release earlier in the year and for good reason. With 11.1 inches of ground clearance, the legendary FOX Racing Suspension and all-terrain tyres the Raptor is a true off roading monster.

The New Focus ST also made its return to the show. This hot hatch is fast becoming a fan favourite with its entirely new visual design inside and out. The Focus’ new aggressive look is also backed up by its new 2.3L Ecoboost and a chassis that loves to be worked.

The Need for Green Mustang is a regular at all our shows and for obvious reasons. It would be ridiculous not to show off our V8 beast. Being at the top of Fords performance line up, the Mustang offers a unique and thrilling driving experience. However, with the new Active Valve Exhaust system, a more conservative engine noise can be chosen for those quiet Sunday drives.

What do you get when you mix the most iconic van with rally sport pedigree? The MS-RT Custom of course! The Custom introduces the ultimate fusion of Ford's state-of-the-art commercial vehicles and MS-RT's motorsport expertise which provides a real talking point for any car fan. This time we brought the 5-seat double-cab version. This van provides enough room to give enough leg room to those extra three passengers in the back but still has ample room to load up the back with whatever you need to carry.
The Ford Performance and sports inspired ST-line Fiesta has a fusion of ultra-contemporary style, sophisticated technology and exhilarating driving dynamics to gives the already impressive and the UK’s favourite supermini gets an upgrade.
Cars of all shapes, sizes and colours were welcome to be displayed at the Priory, with BMW, Jaguar, Ford and many more owners’ clubs turning out to display their pride and joys.
Parked up just opposite our stand was a 1982 Ford Escort RS1600i. Originally 8,659 models were made of which 2,608 were converted to right hand drive to be sold within the UK by Ford Motorsport. This car however, which is 1 of 38 to still be taxed and MOT’d in 2019, was bought from Haynes of Maidstone back in 1983. This car has been well looked after over the past 36 years as it is still all original and unrestored by its 1st owner.
We thought the Raptor was a big truck but we were wrong. A 2008 Ford F-250 Super Duty King Ranch stood feet above its European cousins. ­With its massive twin-turbocharged 6.4 litre diesel V-8 engine that can produce a hefty 350 horse power and 650 pound-feet of torque.
