Vintage vehicles of all kinds were on display over the weekend at the Cleveland Auto Show, with an age range spanning more than 80 years of motoring history.
The rules of entry stated that any vehicle over 25 years of age was eligible to be displayed during the event and the classic cars on show entertained large crowds late into the night, thanks to a 10pm closing time on Saturday.
There were a good mixture of vehicles on show, with some elegantly restored cars looking better than they did when they were brand new, while others had been heavily customised to give them a unique and exciting overhaul, ensuring that they always get attention.
Organiser, Terry Troy, told Fox 8 that while preservation of historic vehicles was important, the show was not out to be completely purist about the nature of each vehicle. Instead it was simply about celebrating the passion and commitment of hundreds of car fans and the money which they have spent on maintaining their automobiles.
While American vehicles were well represented amongst the ranks of cars present during the event, there were also autos from European manufacturers and other regions across the globe.
