Classic Car Show & Autojumble
Sunday 17th August 2014

The 2014 Classic Car Show will be on Sunday 17th August 2014 at the usual venue of the Cranleigh Showground.

If you've not been to our car show before you are in for a treat!

During the course of the day we have around 1,800 classic vehicles (not 200 as was mis-printed in the Surrey Advertiser recently) of all shapes and sizes visit us, from motorcycles to massive commercial and military vehicles.

  • Our oldest vehicle is a 1921 Rolls Royce Silver Ghost
  • The furthest distance travelled to show a classic car - Utrecht in The Netherlands, 334 miles (1958 Porsche 356), which you can see in the arena at 11.10am
  • Update in the arena at 11.10am on the rolling restoration of an MGB GT bought days before the 2013 classic car show
  • Barn find Jaguar Mk5 Drophead, built over 2 years from a dismantled car
  • An 1984 Open Manta found in a Spanish barn, bough for 100, shipped back to the UK and fully restored
  • Vehicles from less known manufacturers such as Beauford, Borgward, Domino, Gaz-Volga, Greeves, Imz and caravan manufacturer Winchester

Brooklands Museum Trust will be returning with a larger stand, more vehicles and two trips to the arena. They will be joined by radio and tv presenter Ed "Stewpot" Stewart, best know for presenting Junior Choice, Crackerjack and Top of the Pops.

Talking of the arena, Cranleigh Lion, TV presenter and classic vehicle enthusiast, Mark Evans will be on the commentary team this year.

We'll be celebrating some automotive birthdays this year, including the Austin Cambridge, Sunbeam Tiger and Ford Mustang and also looking at one of the UK's best loved cars, the Mini and celebrating 50 years since it's first international rally win in Monte Carlo.

There's also a chance to win a prize by working out the value of the cars in the arena at 3pm.

Talking of prizes, you have a chance of winning one of many superb prizes, including a light aircraft flight for two, with our Classic Raffle. Tickets cost just £1 and because we have the prizes donated, ALL the money raised goes to support Cranleigh Lions' work.
