THERE will be some very careful drivers making their way to Knebworth Park on Bank Holiday Sunday and Monday, August 30 and 31.

They are going there to show off their pride and joy motors at the 19th Knebworth Classic Motor Show.

Some 2,000 classic cars, from Fords to Ferraris, will turn out for one of the major events in the heritage motoring calendar.

The enthusiasts' fleet covers an array of model motors representing the golden era from the 1920s to the early 1980s and include rare long-forgotten makes as well as the everyday cars well remembered but now rarely seen.

One of the stars of this year's show will be the Armstrong Siddeley Whitley Landaulette. Only two of these were made in 1951 - one for the governor of Aden and one for the Sultan of Zanzibar.

The Aden car was used by the Queen on her tour of the Commonwealth in 1953 after her coronation. The Sultan of Zanzibar's car probably no longer exists.
