Wrenbury Vintage & Classic Transport Rally took place at The Cotton Arms pub in Wrenbury, near Nantwich, on Sunday 7th July 2019.

This year the rally moved to a new location, as previously (until 2017) it was held on land at the rear of The Elephant pub in Shavington, near Crewe.

The free and family-friendly rally was organised by David and Dot Stevenson from Shavington with a team of volunteers.

The rally featured classic and vintage cars, motorcycles, tractors, and light commercial vehicles along with miniature steam traction engines.

Also present were a Wrenbury & District Model Railway Club 00-gauge modular track layout display, BBQ refreshments, and live music from seven-piece party band Bad Dukes & Beggars.

Classic and vintage car manufacturers to view included: Austin, BMW, Chevrolet, DeLorean, Dodge Brothers, Ford, Hillman, McLaren, MG, Mini, Morris, Porsche, Triumph, Vauxhall, VW, and Wolseley. Classic and vintage motorbike manufacturers included Ariel, BSA, Harley Davidson, Honda, Suzuki, Vincent, and Yamaha. Tractor manufacturers included David Brown, Ford, Massey Ferguson, Massey-Harris and McCormick.

The star of the show was a DeLorean DMC 12 left-hand drive sports car originally built for the American market, with the model made iconic for its appearances as the time machine in the Back to the Future movies.

The rally took place in warm and sunny weather and was enjoyed by hundreds of people.
