BEAUTIFUL motors from days gone by delighted visitors to Fareham’s West Street.
About 60 vintage cars including Minis, Triumphs, Volvos MGs and Rolls-Royces lined the popular shopping strip as part of the annual Bygone Fareham festival.
Waterlooville-based group Now That’s Jive danced to the tunes of the 1950s, while saxophone quartet Saxofony added to event’s old-time flavour.
Brian Brown, 76, of West End, was there with his sleek, black 1955 MG TF1500.
He said the car was ‘only two owners from new’, and was one of only a few hundred made for the British market.
Mr Brown said vintage cars had a timeless appeal.
‘A lot of modern cars look the same but vintage cars tend to look different,’ he said.
‘They bring back a lot of memories and they give people a lot of pleasure to look at.’
Simon Lewry, 57, of Fareham, dressed as a French gendarme to show off a 1919 Citroën B2.
Mr Lewry said he enjoyed working on vintage cars and meeting with fellow members of the South Hants Vehicle Preservation Society.
‘They’re fun to drive, and there is great camaraderie among the club members,’ he said.
