An all-new event that has been created to showcase and celebrate some of the best customised and heritage Fords in the Glasgow region experienced a huge turnout during its opening.

The Coatbridge Cup; aptly named because it's based at Evans Halshaw Ford in Coatbridge, Scotland, had over 400 people walk through the doors to come and see some of the best Fords from the local area. Cars included a highly modified 2015 Focus ST (pictured above) and a pristine 1970 Ford Capri (pictured right).

On top of light refreshments and being able to mingle with the owners of the cars, those in attendance were given the opportunity to vote on the best car from two separate categories (customised and heritage).

Taking first place in the 'heritage' category was an immaculate 1982 Fiesta XR2; the crowd were particular fans of the unmistakable pepperpot alloy wheels. Mentioned earlier, the modified 2015 Focus ST took top spot in the 'customised' category. Both cars took home £200 in prize money alongside a trophy that will no doubt stand proud in their cabinets at home!

The idea for the Coatbridge Cup ran off the back of the highly successful Ford Performance event, with the team at Ford Coatbridge deciding to host a rare showcase for the locals to enjoy!

One of the brainchilds for this fantastic event was Gavin Sharp, Commercial Vehicle Dealer Principal, who was very pleased with the response from the locals, he said: "This is the most successful event we have hosted in the 20 years I have been here. There was a fantastic range of cars and a great mix of people coming through the doors to look at them. It was a great spectacle that allowed people to get close to some rare motors, while it also gave owners a great platform to show off their pride and joys!"

Following the success of this event, we are pleased to announce the Coatbridge Cup will be returning to the dealership on April 3rd 2020 with an Easter Theme!
