Picture of the Month – February
The Gilbern Owners Club combined resources of South West & Bristol area groups provided a varied selection of vehicles for the Great Western Classic Car Show at the Royal Bath & West Showground at Shepton Mallet in Somerset.
This is the first of the three shows that organisers Mortons Media Group Ltd run at this venue each year and once again we were allocated a pair of adjacent stands allowing the club to display four Gilberns on one plot and a selection of our other classics on the adjacent plot under the banner of ‘My Other car’s a Gilbern’.
With the first wave of storms forecast for Sunday most visitors elected to attend on Saturday, with a huge number of interesting vehicles in the the ‘Classic Car Park’ outside the main display halls. as expected, Sunday was quiet, but fortunately there was a break in the weather allowing the display vehicles a chance to head home in relative comfort.
One of the ‘Other Cars’ was the little Berkeley B105 provided by Guy & Catherine, this drew a lot of interest resulting in the prestigious aware of ‘Most Interesting Vehicle in Show’.

About the Club
The Gilbern Owners Club was founded in 1969 by Martin Ingall, our President, when the cars were still in production. In November 1979, with the expansion of the Club’s activities, it was decided to incorporate the Club as a company limited by guarantee.
The Gilbern is a specialist car that attracts people who are interested in the vehicle they drive. Experience with other makes where the manufacturer has ceased production shows the importance of an owners’ club in the maintenance of the marque. Without this interest and support, the general condition of the cars may decline and spares may become harder to find, with a consequent potential drop in the value of the cars.
Our objective is to ensure the continued existence of Gilbern cars by encouraging interest and enthusiasm in the marque. We provide a range of technical services and organise activities and motoring events to bring together Gilbern Owners and enthusiasts.
One of the Club’s major objectives is to ensure that no shortage of parts occurs which would render a member’s car un-roadworthy or unusable. With the help of a wide range of suppliers, we have been very successful and most essential components are available.
A monthly magazine, Welsh Rarebit, together with this website are the main forms of communication with our members.
