It was a nostalgic day for the many who flocked to King’s Lynn’s Classic Car Show. 

The annual event saw more than 200 cars of all colours, shapes and sizes from past decades on the Tuesday Market Place.

One highlight was an Oldsmobile Curve Dash which dated back to 1904.

The popular show, organised by West Norfolk Council, was held on Sunday to coincide with the town’s Heritage Open Day.

Graham Middleton, cabinet member for business development, said: “The magnificent Tuesday Market Place was full of classic cars, from a Ford Anglia to an E-type Jaguar, American pick-ups to a Daimler and a classic Mini. 

“People filled the square looking at the cars and enjoying the live music provided by Carnaby Sounds and The Summertime Kings.

“This is the last event of our summer programme in King’s Lynn. 

“The weather has been perfect and it has once again proved to be one of our most popular events. 

“It complements the Heritage Open Day which is organised by the Civic Society and this year celebrates its 25th anniversary. 

“Together they really show off our town at its best.”

A Rover P5B won Best Car which saw its owner John Wallet receive the Les Daubney Memorial Trophy, sponsored by former borough mayor Nick Daubney in memory of his late father.
