Hundreds of visitors helped to make the annual Whitley Bay Classic Car Show a roaring success.

After a wet and windy Saturday, the weather held out for the event on Sunday and scores of families made their way to The Links to feast their eyes on more than 600 vehicles of all shapes and sizes.

There were vintage buses and mid-1930s classic motors on show as well as eye-catching recent models and scooters, with their owners on hand to chat about their vehicles’ history.

A number of car clubs attended including NECPWA, Tynemouth Mini Club, MG Northumbria, Jaguar Enthusiasts and Tyneside American.

The programme also included live jazz music, refreshments and small fairground rides for children.

The free event, which ran from 10am to 3pm, was organised by North Tyneside Council and supported by Infiniti Newcastle, Eastcoast Taxis and Whitley Bay Chamber of Trade.

Eddie Darke, the council’s cabinet member for leisure, culture and tourism, said the show was now in its fourth year and it always proved popular with visitors as well as classic car owners.

He added: “This event has grown over the last few years to be one of the most popular in the calendar and it’s one we always look forward to.”
