Vintage Cars

Regent Street was given over to vintage and veteran cars on Saturday giving us the opportunity to examine them up close and even take a ride. Sunday morning the vintage cars set off on their annual London to Brighton rally. Would have been rather cold for most of them.

Ah, the Golden Age of Motoring; if a little cold and wet. Lovely machines.

Ah I was hoping you'd been there. I would have liked to have seen this myself.

I always think of the wonderful film Genevieve from 1953 when I see one of these old motor cars.

Oh what a sight to enjoy, and I agree, a warm coat, hat and scarf would have been the order of the day.

«Louis», being an old car buff, was delighted to see this!

I hadn't realised the race is still running. It's as much part of history as the cars are.

Great picture! These beauties are a far cry from the cars with have now with air conditioning systems, and parking assistance!

What a memorable rally for Regent Street! I wish our neighborhood held vintage cars rallies too. Also, most of my friends love vintage cars, especially the 1970 Chevy.
