Classic cars were all the rage in Letchworth’s Arena Parade car park for Drive it Day, as automobiles ranging from a 1920s Austin to a modern day Aston Martin lined up in formation.

Members of the club were on hand to speak to passers by – many of whom stopped to pay homage to the gleaming paintwork of the array of parked cars.

The group then made their way to Anglesey Abbey, near Cambridge.

Club chairman Nick Salmon said: “Drive it Day is all about showing the public the quantity of classic cars still on the road and to draw attention to the value to the economy of the industries that support the movement.
