The fourth Classic Car Day proved a big hit with visitors to King’s Lynn on Sunday.

Held on the Tuesday Market Place on Heritage Open Day, the event was described by organisers West Norfolk Council as a fitting end to its summer programme of free events.

Borough councillor and cabinet member Elizabeth Nockolds, said: “Cars started to arrive from 8am, and at 10am more than 200 cars were in place for the public to view.

“There was an amazing collection of cars, some in perfect condition, and a few still under renovation.

“Many proud drivers told some interesting stories to the public on the history of their cars. The day was enjoyed by the public as well as the car owners, even the weather was kind and kept dry for everyone.”

The winner of the 2017 Les Daubney Car of the Show award, was Chris and Hilary King with their 1954 Riley RME. The trophy was presented by Cllr Nick Daubney in memory of his late father.
