Car show chairman John Clark said: "This is a special year for a lot of vehicles mainly the Mini which celebrates its 60th anniversary and it just happens it was August 26, 1959 that you could actually order a brand new Mini from the showrooms so with that we decided to hold a special event to mark the occasion.
"It then occurred to us it was also the Ford Capris 50th Anniversary and the Capri was and still is a iconic car so we decided to hold a special event for it as well.
"Its also the 30th anniversary of the Mercedes SL roadster a car you just don't see on the roads any more and the same goes for the Rover 200 series, which is its celebrating its 30th anniversary. as well. These cars used to grace our roads but now very few are left, less than 400 of them going by DVLA website.
"We have a number very rare Rover Tomcat Coupes attending – one is so rare its the only one left of its type.
"For the younger generation a iconic Ford Focus RS is celebrating its 10th birthday and these RS Focus Cars are becoming collectors cars."
In addition to vehicles from down the ages there will be a whole host of stands and stalls representing the trade, community groups and charities. A large selection of caterers are due to be on site as well throughout the day.
The show will is set to run from 11am to 4pm on Sunday, August 25.
