The Coleford Canival of Transport is based in the small market town of Coleford, Gloucestershire, which also happens to be where my office is. It’s been running since 1998, and takes over most of the town on Easter Monday. As with most of these local car shows there was a wide variety of ‘ordinary’ cars, as well as a lot of various interesting things. No real exotica, but who needs that?
