George Sheldon, one of the organisers, said there had been more people taking vehicles to the show this year than previously.

It was opened by mayor Peter Davies and Star columnist Peter Tuffrey - .

Mr Sheldon said: “Pretty much all of the vehicles proved really popular with the people who came.

“This year was only the second time we’ve run it, and the weather was a bit of a problem over the weekend.

“But the attitude of those who were taking part was really good.

“It was bigger and better than last year. This year we had more monster trucks than last year, with four of them compared to only two last year.

“I was pleased to see five or six America cars, including an old Model T Ford, which we had never had here before. This year we had 15 miniature steam engines, compared to three last year.

“We’re hoping to do another event like this one next year - the rain has not put us off!”
