Stonham Barns Park gears up for vintage cars and American culture

The American Car Show 2023, in association with Carrot Town Garage (CTG), will hold its ever-popular club’s and private owner’s showcase day on Saturday 22 July and Sunday 23 July (10am-4pm) at Stonham Barns Park – one of Suffolk’s premier leisure, retail and holiday destinations. The third show in the series is all about American cars with muscle, power and fabulous paintwork.

It will be an event strongly supported by the classic car community exhibiting a dazzling array of cars, trucks and hot rods.  Cars on show at the event will span the last six decades, and include Buicks, Cadillacs, Chevrolets, Chryslers and Fords.

New for this year will be Motion Pictures Motors – a movie car club – which will be bringing some famous movie cars to the event.

There will be live music on both days with music from DJ Nadge on Saturday.

Each of the exhibits will arrive for a stunning static display before being expertly driven around the showground in the ‘Show and Shine’ parade with awards given at 3.00pm on Sunday. Among the many attractions on the day will be trade and club stands and autojumble as well as food and drink concessions.

Commenting on the forthcoming show, Stuart Davies, who founded sponsors Classic American Car Dealership Carrot Town Garage, said: ‘We look forward to this event at Stonham Barns Park and this year we are hoping to make it more entertaining than ever.’

‘Many of these cars will be joining the other American cars on show to produce one of the finest shows of classic American cars in the UK. It’s going to be an all-action event with some of the best cars and engines you have ever seen and heard.’

‘We can promise the show will be an American automotive spectacle. To anyone who likes statement cars with attitude this is the show for you.’

Mark Warren from the Stonham Barns Park Events Team added, ‘It is the perfect day for American classic car enthusiasts from around the region. You can’t suppress the enthusiasm of the owners – they are devoted to restoring and showing their prized vehicles and getting the exhibits together always makes for a stunning show. The vibe is most-certainly there from when the show starts. It’s such a cool day.’
