Car enthusiasts turned up in their thousands to enjoy a motoring extravaganza.

Rain poured but spirits were high as crowds flocked to Maldon’s Promenade Park yesterday to see hundreds of vintage, classic, and sports cars, American cars, military and commercial vehicles.

More than 1,000 cars were on show at the third Maldon Motor Show and this year’s exhibitors include The Ferrari Club, East Coast Styling, Hornby, Lodge Coaches and 35 car clubs, mostly from Essex.
