Mayor of Kirklees Coun Martyn Bolt and Mayoress Liz Bolt attended the show and were asked to choose the car they would most like to drive home.

Barry Simkin, a Friends committee member and member of the car club, said: “The Mayor chose a 1928 Model A Ford, while the Mayoress chose an immaculate Jowett Jupiter. It looked superb.

“It was a fantastic day and it was very well attended. The park is an excellent venue and people were still sat outside at 5pm enjoying the weather.

“We had a Bullnose Morris Saloon from the early 1920s right up to more modern stuff. It was really nice to see – it’s all part of our motoring heritage.”
