The number of cars exhibited at this year’s Classic Car Show in Milngavie - held earlier this month - was DOUBLE last year’s.

The organisers, Milngavie’s Business Improvement District (BID), were delighted to attract 74 cars in total and the number of visitors (around 8,000 throughout the day) was also double that of last year.

It included a fire engine, a New York police car, a Mustang, a Cadillac, several Jaguars, a Ford Falcon, and some beautiful classics.

The oldest car was 114 and was called Alldays & Onions.

As well as cars there was something for all ages with face painting, a magician, balloon twisting, and dance and music entertainment, including the Jive and Rock&Roll Dance group.

Ania Surma, Milngavie BID co-ordinator, said: “There was a very positive atmosphere in the village and it was great seeing people meeting their old friends and engaging with car owners and other activities.
