Over 100 classic cars arrived for the Long Sutton Barns and Tydd St Giles Classic Car Show on July 10.

Proud owners of lovingly restored old cars came to show them off and were met with incredible enthusiasm - an estimated 800 people turned up to Long Sutton Barns Arts and Crafts centre to see them.

One of five organisers, Norman Honeyman, said: “It was a really great turnout, despite the rainstorm in the afternoon.

“We wanted people to be able to enjoy all the classic cars from around the area.”

The show ran from 10am until 4pm and guests who held their nerve during the bad weather were treated with a fly-past by a Battle of Britain Hurricane aircraft.

It was free entry for all visitors and car owners – all part of the spirit of the day.

Models of cars that were present at the show included Fords, Rovers, Jaguars, Morris’ and VWs.

There was also a car boot and auto jumble sale for guests to rummage through and find some good bargains.

Long Sutton Barns’ next event is a Country Fair from August 27-29.
