My Story

My childhood was full of boundless happy memories of British seaside holidays with my family. Sand in your sandwiches, paddling in ice cold sea, and of course, wonderful ice creams! dawlish19661Penelope’s Vintage Ice cream is a lifelong dream to reinvent these fabulous times of yesteryear and treasured nostalgia.

Penelope used to live in Scarborough but came to her new home in Northamptonshire in May 2014. I have spent the summer and autumn months lovingly restoring her back to her former glory with the help of Michael Dos Santos from Classic and bournemouth1Custom cars In Brackley, Northamptonshire.

Penelopbroadsand19741e needed lots of TLC, but has retained all original fixtures and fittings, complete with a beautiful new paint job in classic colours to depict her vintage. I’ve had to be patient, but the end result is magnificent and she now looks simply stunning!
