What Dads Really Want for Father's Day

If you’re stuck for ideas as to what to get Dad this Father’s Day, well, if he's into all things motoring, the British Motor Museum has some great ideas. For example, how about tickets for one of their forthcoming events, a motoring themed gift from their gift shop, or you could even adopt one of their vintage vehicles. Here's more information:

On Sunday June 16 the Museum at Gaydon will be hosting the Vintage Motor Cycle Club's Banbury Run. Visitors can enjoy seeing the spectacle of 500 vintage and veteran motorcycles at this annual event. The Run is the biggest gathering of motorcycles and three-wheelers produced before 1931. Visitors will love taking in the sights, sounds and smells of these astonishing machines as they embark on the journey to Banbury and back. 

The Museum also has plenty of gift ideas. Those looking for the ideal gift for an owner of a cherished classic car, can buy a Heritage Certificate. The Certificates are the official ‘Certified Copy of a Factory Record’ for a classic car showing the car’s specification as it left the production line. For more information visit

Alternatively, adopt a car from the Museum collections! From the Albion A1 8hp dog cart to the Wolseley 2200 (last of line), cars that form part of the Museum’s permanent collections are available to adopt.  Look at the Museum’s Online Collections and choose the ‘adoptable’ filter. Adoptions cost between £25 & £100 and adopters get a digital adoption certificate and their name added to the car’s listing in the Online Collections. For more information, visit
