Classic cars line up in King's Lynn
While Lynn’s historic buildings opened their secret past to the public on Sunday, motoring enthusiasts brought their own brand of heritage to the town centre.
Nearly 200 treasured vehicles lined up on the Tuesday Market Place for Lynn’s popular sixth classic car day.
Organised by West Norfolk Council, the show attracted cars going back to the 1930s and spanning many decades since.
There were elderly Austins, prestigious Rolls Royces, MG sports cars, Morris Minors, Triumphs, sleek Jaguars and dozens of other brands. They were all gleaming in the sunshine, many of them immaculately restored and together reflecting some of motoring’s golden eras.
After being grounded for so long by the pandemic, it was also a welcome chance for their proud owners, who had come from all over East Anglia, to get together again, enjoy a warm summer afternoon, mix with fellow enthusiasts and swap stories about their precious cars.
There was also plenty of time for them to chat to the large crowds of people who were strolling around the town for the Heritage Open Day and to talk to them about the history of their cars and what they meant to them.
