If you were enjoying a leisurely  afternoon drive on Sunday and found  yourself surrounded by a 1954 Armstrong Sidderley, an E-Type Jag and a 1938 Morris 8 to name but a few, you  hadn’t wandered unknowingly into  Doctor Who’s Tardis - you had arrived at the 2013 North Cheshire  Classic Car Club Annual Show.

Held this year at Vauxhall Motors in Ellesmere Port, the event welcomed more than 100 historic vehicles from five decades.

And it wasn’t just cars that graced the event, as bikes, scooters and  campervans from a bygone era also  made up the attractions.


Formed in 2009, the NCCCC has  grown from just nine members.

Among the eye-catching displays were: A Monte Carlo-plated Panhard  was featured in Mrs Biggs, the ITV  serial about the wife of Great Train  Robber, Ronnie Biggs.

Disgraced inventor John DeLorean headhunted a manager from  the Ellesmere Port Vauxhall plant in  order to help bring alive his dream.

The North Cheshire Classic Car  Club is always looking for new members to swell its ranks, as throughout  the year they visit many local shows,  fetes, and make trips to other clubs.

So if you have a vehicle you think might fall into the category of ‘classic’, pop along and introduce yourself  to the club.

The members meet at the Hinderton Arms pub in Neston on the last  Monday of each month.
