This will be the 11th year for the show
Around 300 modern and classic trucks will descend on Gaydon when the British Motor Museum hosts the Retro Truck Show next month.
Now in its eleventh year, truck enthusiasts will be able to see an array of powerful trucks from some of the top manufacturers including Volvo, Scania, DAF, Foden and ERF trucks on Saturday 11 and Sunday September 12.
The Retro Truck Show is one of the museum’s most popular events and features some modern trucks produced between 1971 and 2001.
Trucks that fall into the age category of 1971 to 2001 are welcome to attend and the cost is £20.

Lee Herbert, show organiser said “The Retro Truck Show is a fantastic show making great use of our outdoor event space and a superb weekend for owners, drivers, enthusiasts and the public.
"With a laid back and relaxed atmosphere, it sets it aside from other truck shows. Seeing trucks from four different decades is an amazing spectacle to see and we look forward to the show next month”.
