And visitors said the event was a superb day out – with the Rawlinson family from Scunthorpe saying the show had plenty of things to keep the family happy.
Simon Rawlinson said: "It is a great day out.

"There is plenty to do and there is a good variety of cars on display. We have come to look at the cars to get some ideas for the future."
His wife Sarah said: "We have visited before and it is good to come to for a day out."
There was a wide range of dealerships displaying their latest cars at the show.
Andy Taylor, body shop manager at Fiat, said the turnout was excellent and there were a lot more people than last year.
He said: "We have had massive interest in the Fiat 500 model and plenty of people interested in buying the cars.
"The sales inquiries have been good. We really enjoy attending these events."
Paul Aldred, sales manager at Burrells Chrysler from Doncaster, said the day had gone really well.
He said: "It has been really encouraging to see lots of interest in our models.
"Everybody is very friendly and there is a real community atmosphere. A lot of people have been looking at the Isuzu D-Max as it is the first time it has been seen in the UK."
There were also classic cars for those who had a vintage taste, and recently modified vehicles for people who like something more up-to-date.
Natalie Dowell, from Scunthorpe, is part of Scunthorpe Midnight-modified car club and has just bought a modified Peugeot 206. She said: "It is a really great show with an impressive display of cars. Seeing the different models helps me get ideas about how to modify my car."
Peter Taylor, business development manager for Grimsby and Scunthorpe Media Group, organised this year's event.
He said: "It has gone really well. Everyone is enjoying the day and there is a good atmosphere.
"We have seen a steady stream of people coming and going all day. Everybody seems happy so I would say the show has been a great success."
