THE Black Country's car making heritage will be celebrated at a 'Festival of Vehicles' at the Black Country Living Museum this Father's Day.

A display of West Midlands-manufactured cars will be showcased at the event on Sunday June 16, including world-famous brands such as Bean, Clyno, Guy, Sunbeam, Austin and Jensen.

Tim Shields, the Museum’s transport manager, said: “We are delighted to host this event for vintage vehicle enthusiasts everywhere. The local area has a well-deserved reputation for vehicle manufacturing, and we are once again proud to bring a selection of these vehicles to the Museum for visitors to enjoy.”

The Tipton Road museum is home to the largest collection of Black Country-manufactured vehicles anywhere in the world, including buses, motorbikes and cars and boasts the longest trolley bus route in the country.

On the day visitors will also be able to take a ride on the Museum’s vintage bus, tram and trolley bus collection.
