And the sunshine added to the feel good factor as members celebrated their organisation’s 35th anniversary.

Organiser Maurice Cole, of Dudley – pictured above with DZG CEO  Peter Suddock – said: “It was just a lovely day and the weather held for us which was a real bonus.

“We have been coming to the castle for the past 26 years and we always enjoy our day in the courtyard. It was great to mark our anniversary with so many vintage and veteran vehicles on display.”

The bumper line-up included a rare 1925 open-top Bean, manufactured in the Black Country plus Maurice’s own cars including a 1972 E-type Jaguar, a 1961 Daimler Dart, a 1977 Rolls Royce and a 1978 TR8.   DZG Head of Media and Communications, Jill Hitchman, said: “The annual West Midlands Classic Car Club show is very much an established date in DZG’s diary and we always look forward to seeing their magnificent machines lined up in the shadow of Dudley Castle.”
