Boston Classic Car Club is to hold an extra special annual car show on Sunday - marking its 25th anniversary.

The popular show will feature hundreds of retro vehicles from a number of eras - and a fly-past from the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight (weather premitting).

The group, working with Boston Borough Council, recently held a ‘Classics in the Market Place’ event to raise awareness of the main show.

A spokesman for the club said: “Members of the public were highly-intrigued and stopped to chat, and flyers were given out.”

It was back in 1990 when a group of like-minded enthusiasts placed an advert in the Lincolnshire Standard, calling for fellow lovers of timeless motors to get in touch. And since then the club has gone from strength to strength - with more than 250 members.

The show takes place at Graves Park, Skeldyke Road, Kirton. This is signposted just off the A16.

Besides the huge array of classic cars, there will be motorcycles, trade stands, autojumble and much more including trophies for the best cars. Trophies will be presented by Boston Mayor Coun Richard Austin.

Practical Classics chief mechanic John Simpson will be attending.

The spokesman added: “John is the founder and president of Boston Classic Car Club and who knows what famous faces from the world of classic cars you might just drop in for a wander round.”

Admission is £3 for adults with acompanied children under 16 years going free.
