ONE of the growing attractions at Malton Show is the classic car exhibition.

Although entries were slightly down due to the show coinciding with another event, there will still more than 120 vehicles on display.

Andrew Welham, sales consultant with the Malton-based Classic and Sportscar Centre, which ran and judged the section, said it had been a great success.

“A lot of people like to bring their vehicles to Malton Show because there is such a range of events here alongside the car show,” he said.

“We’ve had a wide variety of vehicles this year, including a Series One Land Rover, built in the late 1940s, which is great to see at an agricultural show.

“We also have a very unusual three-wheel fibre glass Bond bug which is amazing.”

The cars were organised into three sections - pre-1940s, 1950s and every decade after that up to the 1990s.

A selection of vehicles also took part in a display in the show’s main ring,

Andrew said he felt the classic cars added another dimension to Malton Show.

“Word has certainly spread that Malton is a really good show and the classic car people love coming here,” he said.

“It is growing year by year and judging by the footfall, it has once again proved popular.”
