Picturesque Thornton-le-Dale – known as the gateway to the North York Moors – is famous for its beautiful brooks and stunning thatched cottages but it is also, thanks to the Mathewsons, now a destination for classic car buyers from all over the world.

The Mathewsons are a dynasty of classic car auctioneers from North Yorkshire - as the family hunt for rare vehicles to sell they uncover heart-warming and remarkable stories behind classic car ownership.

Bangers & Cash follows the Mathewson family as they discover and auction over 2,000 classic cars a year, as well as all kinds of rare and vintage motorbikes and memorabilia.
