FINAL preparations are being made to one particular Combe Martin Carnival event, which is sure to put a smile on the face of motor enthusiasts.
The Static Motor Show is being held on Thursday, August 13 at the coach park, next to the Pack O'Cards.
Cars and motorbikes that are the pride and joy of young drivers and riders from the village will be on display, supported by other locally-owned cars including a Ferrari, TVR, Lancia, Lotus, Mercedes, Triumph, MG and BMW.
The Fire and Rescue Service's youth interaction vehicle, a heavily customized VW T5 van, will also be there, aiming to raise awareness about responsibility on the road.

Committee Member Glyn Howell-Williams has organised the event in conjunction with young village drivers, Transform and the Police.
He said: "We decided to include the show in the carnival celebrations, following criticism earlier this year about some of our younger drivers. Therefore, this is one way of bringing the local community and visitors together, letting them meet up and look around these superb vehicles, as well as promoting the enjoyment of motoring and road safety."
