Knebworth and Stevenage welcome classic kings of the road

The exotic, rare, bonkers and beautiful came to Comet country for a celebration of motoring through the ages.

Hundreds of cars, vans, buses and bikes dating back to the ‘30s were at events over the last two weekends.

More than 1,000 vehicles from 40 clubs were on display in the grounds of Knebworth House over the Bank Holiday weekend for the 22nd Classic Motor Show.

Highlights included a decibel challenge to find the loudest vehicle and a cavalcade by Letchworth GC Classic and Vintage Car Club, featuring Chris Cheesman’s concours winning 1930 Model A Ford.

The wilder side of classic motoring was on display on Sunday at the third A602 Club Autorama Show in Stevenage.

Club vice-chairman Martin Beecroft said: “It was once again a great turn out of cars and bikes from all over the country and the sun even decided to pay us a visit. The show and the A602’s go from strength to strength – a club that started with eight members in 2008 has increased to 75.”
