CLASSIC car enthusiasts are revving up to bring a blast of the past to Washington.

About 100 old vehicles will be on display at the North East Restoration Club’s show on Sunday, May 11.

Vintage cars of yesteryear – along with vans and buses – will be the main attractions at the six-hour event.

Keith Noble, 62, honorary president of the club, said: “The amount of enthusiasts who come, and the vehicles they come with, never ceases to amaze me.

“It isn’t just the classic cars that will be on show. It’s also the commercial vehicles like fire engines and vans. We even get custom cars.”

The event is being held at the club’s site in Wilden Road, on Pattinson Industrial Estate, from 10am to 4pm. Entry costs £2 for adults, £1 for OAPs and free for children under 14.
