And this year looks set to be another great event with the Annual Vintage and Classic car show to be held on Sunday, April 23, from 10am to 3pm at Tesco’s Belle Vue branch in Hartlepool.

A society official described it as “a great opportunity for the older generation to go down Memory Lane, and the younger generation to see living history.”

And he urged: “If you have a vintage or classic car prior to the year 2000, why not come along and show it.”

The show is just one in a series being lined up this year.
