These events ares free to attend and open to owners of classic European and American cars, vans, trucks, and motorbikes.

The next meet at The Sydney Arms pub is on Sunday May 22, 9am to 2pm.

“Off the rails car meet” began at the Crewe Heritage Centre in November 2019.

They were setup by Ken Smith from Crewe, to allow owners of European and American cars, vans, trucks, and motorbikes to get-together socially and to display their vehicles for the general public to enjoy.

Ken’s son, Lee, has taken on the organising of the car meets since late-2021.

A representative from ‘The weekend runaways meet’ said: “A huge thanks to Grant the landlord at The Sydney Arms for allowing us to use his property. Thanks to everyone for the support at our new venue.”
