The British Motor Museum is gearing up for plenty of truck fun when it hosts the Retro Truck Show on Saturday 10 & Sunday 11 September.
Around 300 modern and classic trucks will descend on Gaydon for this popular show which is now in its twelfth year. The Retro Truck Show features some of the best modern trucks produced between 1971 and 2001, making for a nostalgic and family friendly show. Truck enthusiasts can see an array of powerful vehicles from some of the top manufacturers including Volvo, Scania, DAF, Foden and ERF trucks. Trucks from across Europe will also be present.
Trucks that fall into the age category of 1971 to 2001 are welcome to attend and the cost is just £20. There are no trophies or judging, just the opportunity for truck fans to get together and admire the displays. There will also be an Indoor Model Show and trade area with a selection of photos, models, and brochures. Camping is available on the Friday and Saturday nights.
Lee Herbert, Show Organiser said “The Retro Truck Show is one of our most popular shows and is a fantastic weekend for owners, drivers, enthusiasts, and the public. With a laid back and relaxed atmosphere, it sets it aside from other truck shows. Watching trucks from four different decades is an amazing spectacle to see and presents some fantastic photo opportunities!”
