The event is hosted by organiser Jane Fawcett at the stunning loch side location of Castle Semple Country Park in Lochwinnoch Renfrewshire and this will be its 6th year in the Regional Park.

Jane Fawcett said “Last year was absolutely out of this world! The response I had from the viewing public was truly wonderful. I think the fact that the sun shone just showed everyone’s cars off beautifully. All that chrome gleaming, polish glinting, no steamy windows for people to peer through and everyone grinning from ear to ear. My original idea was to have a one off show a few years ago but all my friends and car club buddies encouraged me to keep it going and with their assistance, I have.

Last year, we had all the old favourites of Ford, Morris, MGs, Jags, Triumphs alongside the incredible Model T Ford Hotrods, Pontiacs, Maserati, Lincoln and fire trucks and even classic motorcycles for the first time. However my stars of the show were a stunning 50 year old Transit and a Ferguson tractor driven to the show by a colleague. What I laugh I had seeing him bouncing along the car park in his work uniform! One day, I’ll get my Zephyr back on the road to join in the fun but for now my Dolomite Sprint will have to do!

The show is now FULL with 80 amazing Classic Cars including a tank recovery vehicle, a trans am and a hotrod Morris Minor.

Its not just cars on show at Castle Semple, why not look at the new Semple Trail art installations while you are here? There are amazing wooden benches at Blackditch Bay, Kids Passport Activities and sculptures to find many of which are near Castle Semple Visitor Centre. Available whatever the weather is the Castle Semple café with a range of coffees from our new machine including deluxe hot chocolate and our wide range of flavoursome smoothies/frapes and hot cranberry or apple fruity infusions.
