More than 70 prized vehicles were on display in Great Whyte for the inaugural Ramsey Classic Car show, which took place in May.

Everything from

Volkswagen Beetles to American muscle cars lined the streets, with exhibitors travelling from across East Anglia and beyond to take part.

The event ran alongside the Eastern Bus Enthusiasts Fenland Busfest, which saw classic buses give free rides across Cambridgeshire, including service from the event’s main location in Whittlesey, bringing hundreds of vehicles in to the town.

Tom Mortlock, car show organiser, said: “We have previously held a show at Thorney alongside Busfest but Ramsey seemed an ideal location.

“People in the town have been great, we’ve had a lot of very positive feedback and I’m delighted to say we are going to able to run the event again next year.”
