Plans being finalised for the sixth annual car and bike show in Baston which has grown to be one of the biggest in the area.

The Baston Car and Bike Show takes place on Sunday in Main Street, Baston.

The gates open for vehicles at 8am onwards and the event will be open to the public from 10am.

At the shows, classics mingle with all the latest models from just about every main dealership in the area, so visitors can be both nostalgic and look for a new car in a relaxed environment at same time.

There will were more than 650 vehicles on display in 2014 and it looks set to be even bigger this year with more than 15 dealerships from both mainstream and luxury manufacturers already confirmed.

There’s also a treat in store for F1 fans as Hall and Hall will be bringing four of its 1970s Formula One cars.

For visitors who like a bit of time travel the show will also have a fantastic Back to the Future themed display area, complete with a DeLorean DMC-12, to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the film.

Visitors can have their photo taken in the car and a chance to win a ride after the show.

If you have a car from the 1980s or 1950s that you would like to be part of the special display e-mail the organisers at contact@bastoncarshow.com.

It doesn’t matter if your pride and joy isn’t from either of those eras as all cars are welcome, you don’t even need to register, just turn up on the day.

As well as the cars and bikes, visitors can enjoy live bands, kid’s activities and catering including a barbecue, picnic area and a full bar with real ales.
