Hot Rod & Custom Drive-In Day appeals to varied motoring tastes and is a great day out for all the family. In tune with the era, Bows & Braces will create a Vintage Village for the show with authentic clothes from the 1920s to the 1980s and nostalgic home decoration including upcycled furniture, jewellery, kitchenware, luggage, records and maps.
