Glorious sunshine made the event even more of a success, as people passed through the park to take a look at cars from the 1930s right the way through to the 1990s.
The event used to be held in the Italian Gardens, but has moved to Grove Park while improvement works take place at the Town Square. But, the move means bands are now able to perform in the park’s bandstand while car enthusiasts browse the different models.
Alan Woodier was at the event with his 1967 Triumph Herald and Steve Passmore proudly displayed his 1951 Cadillac.
Colin Rogers also attended the event with his 1937 Pickard and more than a dozen other vehicles were also on display.
The next classic car show will take place on April 22 in the park, which is at the end of High Street.
There will be cars on display from 10am-4.30pm as well as musical performances in the bandstand from 2.30-4.30pm.
