Stonham Barns Park gears up for vintage cars, bikes, hot rods … and American culture

The American Car, Bike & Hot Rod Show 2024, in association with Carrot Town Garage (CTG), will hold its ever-popular club’s and private owner’s showcase day on Sunday 21 July (10am-4pm) at Stonham Barns Park – one of Suffolk’s premier leisure, retail and holiday destinations. The fourth show in the series is all about American cars, bikes and hot rods with muscle, power and fabulous paintwork.

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

Also attending will be Motion Pictures Motors – a movie car club – which will be bringing some famous movie cars to the event and there will be live music from The Sixteenth’s.

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 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: ‘This is a stunning event which is building year on year.  We have extended it this year to include a large selection of bikes and hot rods so there will be even more to see.’

‘As always it’s going to be an all-action, muscle machine event with some of the best cars and engines you have ever seen and heard.’

‘To anyone who likes statement cars and big boys toys with attitude this is the show for you.’

Josh Forward from the Stonham Barns Park Events Team added, ‘This event draws huge numbers of enthusiasts from around the region. It’s a family day out not to be missed which is full of colour, fun and surprises. You can’t suppress the enthusiasm of the owners – they are devoted to restoring and showing their prized vehicles and getting these exhibits all together at one venue always makes for a stunning show.’
