Scores of vintage cars filled Towneley as thousands of motor lovers descended on the park for the annual Classic Vehicle Show.

Organised by the Rotary Club of Burnley, all manner of classic vehicles were on show including cars, motorbikes, buses, HGVs and ones from the Army.

Bentleys, MGs, Capris and Morris Minors were just some of the models on display as the show celebrated its 29th year in style.

Car enthusiasts from all over the country made the journey but there would have been few younger car owners there than 17-year-old Nicky Ashworth, who was showing off her Ford Capri MK II for the first time

“I’ve still not passed my test so I had to drive it here with learner plates on,” she said. “I’ve always loved old cars and this is my first one. I bought it in October and this is the first show I’ve brought it to. I’ll definitely be coming back again.”

Youngsters were able to enjoy a fairground on site while other attractions included trade stands and refreshment stalls.

Mr Damian Bond drove from Bacup in his Royale Sabre hand-bulit sports car, and said he was thoroughly enjoying the day.

“It’s the first time I’ve brought a car to a show but it’s been really good. It’s nice seeing all the other vehicles on show and I’ll be coming to more events like this.”
