CLASSIC car lovers will not want to miss the two major events, the Footman James Ford Show and the Great Western Autojumble, next month.

The first is set to be a big one as 20 Ford car clubs gather for the Ford Show. From early Model T’s and military vehicles to street rods, the 75-car show will be the most eclectic mix of rare, standard and modified classic Fords anywhere in the UK.

Ford Cortina clubs are also working on a special feature to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the car. And Norton Radstock Classic Vehicle Club will display seven Fords.

Club member, Nigel Streether, said: “We are finalising the details, but there will be models from the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s, including a 1966 Mustang and a 1974 Escort Mexico.”

The Ford Show runs alongside the Great Western Autojumble, which will feature 100 stalls with a vast array of spares, tools both old and new, memorabilia and collectables.

Visitors can take advantage of the autojumble car boot sale and a classic car auction. The car boot is for pre-booked private individuals only.

Both shows take place at the Bath and West Show Ground in Shepton Mallet on Febraury 11-12. Doors are open from 9.30am-4pm. Tickets, priced £8, are available from Children under 16 can enter for free if accompanied by an adult.
