Hundreds of vehicles on display at the Classic Motor Show held at Walsall Arboretum

Visitors were greeted by perfect weather on Sunday and treated to free face painting and a free bouncy castle for the kids, who entered for free.

In and among all the pre- and post-war classics were shopping stalls, food stalls and a horse bar which was busy all day.

There was even a DJ playing hits from the 50s, 60s, 70s and 80s all day before the famous “Decibel Duel”, where the crowd decides which engine is loudest.

Anke Kroner, Director of Limited Classic Car Events, who organized the day, said: “The show was awesome.

“The weather was very kind to us, and it was a beautiful day, but very hot.

“We had over 300 cars at the event, including local car clubs and individual exhibitors.

“Our prize for oldest classic was a three-way tie for the first time – all three cars were 1932 models, so they will each receive a prize.

“Best Club Stand was won by the Black Country Cruisers, who support all of our shows in the Midlands, and Best of Show was won by an absolutely stunning Morris Marina.

Locally present were Damon Sykes from Oldbury in his 1933 MG J2, Steve Prime from Stafford in his 1960 Cadillac Coupe de Ville and Richard from Walsall in his 1970 VW Beetle convertible.

Anke added: “We had free face painting and a free bouncy castle for the kids, and free entry for the kids, because this is such a great, family-oriented event that we wanted to make sure to support him with all the activities included.

“People browsed the shopping stalls, ate and sat in the shade, admired the cars, gathered around the arena for competitions and our lovely horse bar was busy all day – our van of ice cream also left very happy.

“We really enjoyed the show this year and can’t wait to come back next July.”
