THREE Craven car enthusiasts will be heading to Hebden Bridge this weekend for its vintage weekend.

The event, now in its 32nd year, is organised by Hebden Bridge Rotary Club and will feature 600 veteran, vintage and classic cars, motorcycles, military and commercial vehicles.

Among the exhibitors will be Mike Flintcoft, from Settle, who will be showing two cars - his 1976 Triumph Stag and a recently acquired Hillman Imp.

Mike, a retired hotelier in Hebden Bridge, has been attending the show for 32 years. "It's a great day out for all the family," he said.

Also taking part is retired gas engineer Len Parry from Skipton, who will be showing a 1992 VW Golf Cabriolet Clipper, acquired only two years ago having been extensively restored.

The third Craven exhibitor is Chris Wright, from Gargrave, with his 1959 Frogeye Austin Healey Sprite which he bought in 1965.

The event is held in the heart of Hebden Bridge, at Calder Holmes Park, with Saturday's show featuring classic cars and motorcycles from 1971 to 1993, Rolls Royces and Bentleys, replica or kit cars, military vehicles, pre-1993 tractors and novelty vehicles while Sunday’s display showcases veteran and vintage cars up to 1930, post vintage cars from 1931 to1939 and post-war cars, motorcycles and American vehicles up to 1972.
