More than 200 classic cars were on show at Chippenham Lions’ cherished vehicle day on Sunday.

This year, the second annual event was combined with the Allington Farm annual open day, meaning as well as the car show and food, craft, charity and trade stands of last year, visitors were able to see farm animals and specialised machinery.

Marques included Jaguar and Volkswagen.

The oldest entrant was a 1904 Talbot Type CT2K. Also on show were a 1930 MG Type M, MK Indy kit car, an AC Cobra replica and a Mercedes Benz 500K replica.

The number of entrants – more than expected and twice as many as last year – caused a traffic jam, but all were in place in time before the event opened to the public.

The event was opened jointly by the Lions’ president Brian Nicholson and Chippenham’s deputy mayor, Coun John Scragg.

Ted the Tractor and Digger Dan were there for the children and Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service demonstrated accident rescue skills to the crowd.

Chippenham Lions member Martin Horton said: “We had had a week of poor weather on the lead-up, so there was some concern about what the day was to hold but, come the day, there were no worries and sunshine appeared on cue. “The cars were meticulously turned out by their proud owners and the perfect weather conditions allowed them to be seen at their best. “It gave a good opportunity for the many owners to meet, chat and exchange technical information and, for many visitors, there was the nostalgia of seeing cars they had once owned all those years ago.

“It was a wonderful day and the Lions are very grateful to all those who attended and we hope they all had a good day. We hope this will become an established Chippenham event in the years to come.”

More than £5,000 was raised to go to Lions’ charities.
