Classic Car Show 2009

at Hoghton Tower

Petrol heads got into gear and slammed pedal to the metal to get to Hoghton Tower near Preston, for a vintage car and motorbike rally.

It was the 22nd time the Lancashire Classic Car & Motorcycle Show had taken place and it did so (for a nice change) under beautiful sunny skies.

The event had to be rearranged in 2007 because of torrential rain, but there was no sign of that this year and everyone revved up for a great day.

Hundreds of classic vehicles were on display in the grounds of the Grade I Listed building which has been the ancestral home of the de Hoghton family for over 450 years.

Vehicles included a 1966 Volkswagen Beetle, 1971 Mini Clubman Estate, some vintage Rolls-Royces plus many other sleek lined machines.
