In pictures: Thousands flock to see classic cars galore

Ferraris, Lamborghinis and a vintage double-decker bus were among the stars of the show for the third International Classic Car Show in Old Windsor yesterday.

Nearly 400 vintage, retro and custom cars made an appearance as thousands flocked to Windsor Farm Shop in Datchet Road to enjoy a cream tea or a burger and take a look at vehicles from across the UK and continental Europe.

 

 

Among the attractions was a 1950 Guy Arab double-decker bus, which transported visitors to and from Windsor town centre, while vintage sports cars sat alongside Morris Minors.

The show, which was sponsored by Wightlink, is a precursor to the International Charity Classic Car Extravaganza, which takes place in the Isle of Wight in September and raises money for the Earl Mountbatten Hospice on the island.

Money was also being collected for Help for Heroes on the day.

The event proved a popular attraction, with organiser Victor Gallucci describing the line-up of vehicles as a 'sexy show' and estimating between 10,000-12,000 people had stopped by.

"We have been absolutely crammed with people," he said. "There's been a fantastic cross section [of cars] and some of the country's best."

He added: "Next year we will be bigger and better than before."
