Classic cars of all ages and types filled the grounds of the Duke of Bedford’s stately home in Woburn for the Classic Motor Show.

Club stands at the show included Lotus, Allegro, MG, Mini, Granada, Morris Minor and Standard as well as the 750 Motor Club and the Letchworth Classic and Vintage Club.

There was also an appearance from a charity fundraising Stig and commentator Brian Page, of Classic Assessments was kept busy with the number of cars arriving.

The Best Club Stand award went to the Jensen Owners Club and was collected by member Derek Chapman, with his unique 1967 Jensen prototype.

The Pride of Ownership award, given to an owner who has cherished a long association with a particular vehicle, was won by Stephen George, from Arlesey, Bedfordshire with his 1955 Standard 8 Deluxe. Car of the show was the 1927 Austin 7 Chummy of Keith Fletcher who brought the car down from Lutterworth, in Leicestershire.

On the Sunday, the weather was wet, but the Monday brought sunshine.

Mr Page said: “What a difference a day can make.

“We were all reaching for the sun protection cream and the marshals were struggling to get all the visitors onto the site.”

The Father’s Classic Day Out show is in Woburn on June 21, featuring classic vehicles and hot rods.
