Bexhill on sea became the centre of the universe for classic car enthusiasts on the August bank holiday when over 5,000 visitors from all over the UK and the beyond descended on the 9th annual Bexhill Classic and Custom Car show.
The event had over 500 classic and custom cars and motorbikes from the 1920’s up to modern day future classics and heavily modified cars including exotic and prestige makes including Ferrari, Lamborghini, Lotus, Porsche, Aston Martin, TVR and Rolls Royce along with classic Minis, MG’s, Fords and Jaguars.
There was also a big turnout of American Muscle cars with Corvettes, Camaros, Mustangs and Pontiac classic cars on display. There was even a classic 1950’s Routemaster Bus on show that was open for visitors to go in.
Whilst the main focus of the classic car event were the actual cars, there were also some brilliant Falconry displays, demonstrations and live music along with 40 trade stalls selling classic car and motorbike memorabilia, parts and more traditional market stalls.
Joint show chairman Tom Mason said;
‘The Show was a huge success and has been growing ever since we began back in 2004 and has become an event on the classic car show calender, not only in the UK but in Europe too. We’re particularly grateful to all the exhibitors who turned up and this year we also invited local young drivers with their cars to the show and they we’re a very welcome addition to the event.’
The weather was perfect and the atmosphere was perfect for a day out for all the family. Most importantly the show has raised a considerable amount for mostly local charities, not including this event they have raised over £36,000 so far and are still tallying up from the 26th August event.
If you missed the event, never fear, next year is predicted to be even bigger given its the shows 10th anniversary. New members are also welcome to the Bexhill 100 Motoring Club so please go their site here for more information.
