Revamped show wows Stevenage


More than 1000 vehicles attended the 22nd Classic Motor Show at Knebworth in Hertfordshire.

Classics at the event included everything from Minis to Jaguar E-types, MGBs and Austin Sevens.

The highlight was a cavalcade from the local Letchworth Garden City Classic & Vintage Car Club, with Chris Cheesman’s concours class-winning 1930 Model A Ford proving particularly popular.

In all, more than 40 clubs made it to the event and they were joined by numerous traders.

Historian and classic-car fan Steve Redway’s commentary entertained the crowds as he compered the arena section, which included a ‘Decibel Duel’ to find the loudest car at the event.

Honours of a different kind went to Roy Wilson, whose 1966 VW Beetle took Best in Show

A K’NEX funfair – apparently the biggest in the world - kept big and small kids happy, as did the adventure playground, complete with bouncy castle and slides.

Organiser Stephen Smith said: “[It] has been a terrific hit, with great feedback about the direction we are taking. In 2013, we will build on the lessons we have learned and the successes we have had this year.”
