GLEAMING vintage and classic cars drew the crowds at this year’s annual motor show in Wychbold.
The names of Triumph, Jaguar, MG, Morris, Ferrari and Daimler were among the vehicles displayed by car enthusiasts from across the Midlands at the 18th annual show at Webbs garden centre.
Visitors admired about 340 vehicles and 17 bikes from Bromsgrove Motorcycle Club AT the free event yesterday.
Paul Steiner, marketing coordinator at Webbs, said: “It’s a nice sort of family day.
“There’s always plenty of families enjoying it.
“It’s a very popular event with people.
“For a one-day event it’s our biggest of the year. We look forward to it, it’s always a good atmosphere.”
Among the car enthusiasts who displayed vehicles was John Powell, of Birmingham, who spent 2,000 hours rebuilding his 1936 MG PB, and Colin Wood, of Bromsgrove, who brought along his 1970s Ford Zodiac which used to belong to a Pershore funeral directors.
Edna Dance, aged 61, of Malvern, who was at the show with her husband, Roger, 62, said she was impressed with this year’s event.
“It gets bigger and bigger every year,” she said.
“I’ve been coming here for about 10 years and it’s one of the best I’ve seen.
“There’s a good variety of cars.”
Jackie Wood, 67, of Bromsgrove, who was at the event with her husband Graham, said: “We come most years to have a look at the cars.
There’s more this year.
“It’s a good show. It’s nice to reminisce about all the old cars that we used to drive around.”
Her friend Jean Bevan, 71, who was with her husband Bill, said: “I think it’s just lovely. They look better than the new cars.”
Car show regular Alex Davis, 34, of Alcester, whose grandfather was exhibiting a Singer Gazelle from the early 1950s, was with his threeyear- old son Dylan and family.
