More photos from this event, some fantastic cars to see.

Early 50's Ferrari 166 Tipo Milla Miglia was owned by an elderly gent who had the car for 59 years ! He was happy to let the kids sit in it and for people to get up close. Probably the most valuable car there too, the last one similar sold for 8,000,000 ! The car also boasted the 2 litre Columbo V12 engine, an early version of what would have been in my 250 TR !

The "Beast of Turin" was in fine form and yes, the 4 pot, 23 litre engine does go all the way up to the top of the bonnet !

Several old and unrestored cars including this ex John Surtees Ferrari and a Bugatti Type 35 fresh from a 24 hour race by the looks of it.

The railway in the photo by Mick is in fact the Gloucester Warwickshire Railway, they also host classic car shows, the first being on the 9th June at the station in Toddington, just down the road from Prescott.
