The Classic Car and Bike show has seen amazing growth over the years and this year’s expo promises to be one of the biggest ones yet. The 19th January will be dedicated to Modern Classics. Visitors can expect some hot rods, street rods, souped-up vehicles, racing cars and bikes, custom vehicles and motorcycles and a few new cars and bikes. It’s important to note that there won’t be very old or “conventional” classic vehicles on display on this day. The 20th of January is dedicated to Classics. Visitors will be able to view exceptional and elegant vehicles dating from the late 1890’s to more recent times.

The Classic Car and Bike Show is an event for the whole family! There will be plenty of refreshments available!
