More than 80 classic vehicles will be on show

Classic cars will make their way to a loch this weekend for a vehicle show.

The Classics at Castle Semple Car show will return to the shores of Castle Semple Loch for an eighth year on Sunday, 21 October, from 11am-3pm.

There are over 80 stunning unique vehicles booked in to appear at the event in Lochwinnoch, in Renfrewshire.

This year sees 50 years since the Ford Escort first came onto the market.

There will be a few fine examples on the day alongside some American stars, some stunning Triumphs, Morris, Austins and the much loved Beardmore taxi.

Some special cars to look out for are a Vauxhall Wyvern, Alfa Alfetta, Citroen Traction and a very rare 1946 Fordson Van.

Jane Fawcett, the event organiser and visitor centre assistant at Castle Semple, said: ‘It’s the location at Castle Semple Loch in Lochwinnoch which makes this car show even more special. It’s simply stunning. The cars are packed in, on display in the car park. So dry feet, clean cars and happy visitors and owners.

‘So many grinning faces to be seen as they ogle the cars – remembering their first car, that time it broke down or a first kiss in it!’

Once again, Jane will be supporting her local hospice, St Vincents in Howwood. Last year the show raised over £1150 from entrants fees and stalls provided by Laura McDade and the all-important volunteers from the hospice.

She added: ‘It was the first time I’d run the show for charity and owners were more than happy to pay to display their cars.’

There will be two prizes this year- one for Best In Show by Power Doors and the other will be Judges Choice by Clyde Muirshiel.
