Trim Vintage and Veteran Rally has been running since 1985. It started in a small yard in Loman Street Trim with just 23 cars. The founder Norman Pratt determined to expand the show, approached the Roundtree family who very kindly gave Porchfields to use on the day.
It has grown each year since then and now we have in excess of 450 cars and motor cycles on show. It has become a renowned family day out with many different side shows to keep everyone happy from the young to the old.
It has become such a great day that the only thing that could spoil it would be the weather!
There is everything from The Slieve le Mon Armoured Car from the Civil War to the Presidential Rolls Royce. The rally receives great support from Northern Ireland and the northern visitors enlighten a lot of us greatly with their range of cars. The Morgan Club of Great Britain came over to visit last year. The Rally receives numerous entries but never knows until the day what is going to turn up.
One of the reasons for this rally is to raise funds for local Charities.
