An ‘amazing selection’ of American cars were on display at Weston’s Helicopter Museum at the weekend.

Cadillacs and ‘Copters took place at the museum, in Locking Moor Road on Sunday, with the venue enjoying a great turnout despite some unwelcome bad weather.

Vehicles ranging from majestic muscle cars to impressive pick-up trucks were showcased at the museum.

A museum spokesman said: “A great Cadillacs and ‘Copters show at the museum – some amazing vehicles from all over the South West despite the weather in the morning.”

Cadillacs and ‘Copters is regularly hosted by the museum.

Enthusiasts often travel from far and wide to show off their vehicles and meet others with the same passion.

The venue also boasts displays of more than 80 aircraft, making it the world’s largest dedicated helicopter museum.

It will host a Halloween fun day on October 21.
