Earlestown Classic Car Show was a big success with motors from yesteryear gleameding in the May sunshine.

There were 43 memorable motors on display at the event.

Organised by St Helens Council - in association with the Phoenix Car Club – the free event brought car enthusiasts and families to Market Street to get up close and personal with models dating back as early as the 1930s like the Austin Seven – as well as Lancia and a 1968 Mk2 Jaguar, which was voted car of the day.

Earlestown ward councillor, Dave Banks said: “It was difficult to pick a best in show, but the beautiful Lancia and the Mk2 Jaguar just edged it.

“Earlestown was bustling and the businesses received a big boost to trade. Well done to all involved."

Nearby Newton ward councillor, Seve-Gomez-Aspron, added: “The classic car show has grown year-on-year and the weather made it a cracking family day out!

“I’m already looking forward to next year's show. The effort put in from the Phoenix Car Club and the Newton and Earlestown Community Group made it a fantastic day."
