Richard said: “Vauxfest 24 will be a big show with lots of excitement around the Vauxhall, Bedford and Opel marques, covering the full range of models past and present.

“As Vauxhall and Opel are one of the oldest established vehicle manufactures and distribution companies, its cars and vehicles are much collected and sought after. We have families who come to our shows year on year and we are hoping to add to this happy and dedicated community of Vauxhall, Bedford and Opel followers with more owners from the East of England.’

Vauxhall branded vehicles are still produced in the UK as well as in Opel factories in Germany, Spain and Poland.

Lifelong Vauxhall enthusiasts father and son David J Walker, of Hitcham, and David F Walker, of Cockfield, have followed the brand since David senior worked for a Vauxhall dealership in Stowmarket.

The family, who now own 23 Vauxhall cars, are looking forward to participating in the show.
