THOUSANDS of people went along to the Prestatyn Classic Car Show as the event drew bigger crowds than ever.
The exhibition started in 2000, and despite being cancelled in both 2020 and 2021 due to the Covid-19 pandemic, survived thanks to the hard work of founder Tim Williams and his dedicated volunteer staff.
Huge crowds went along to Mondays show, with more than 400 vehicles lining the High Street, nearby car park and area by the Christ Church, with both residents and car enthusiasts getting a glimpse of motoring from the past.
Among the many highlights was a Morris Minor collection courtesy of the North Wales branch of the Morris Minor Owners Club, a gold Pontiac Firebird, an impressive navy Ford Mustang, and a Chevrolet Corvette C3 Stingray.
Older Jaguars, Ferraris, and Rolls-Royce numbers were on display, as well as vintage motorbikes including Harley Davidsons and Honda and Bantam motorbikes.
A DMC DeLorean, famous for being a time machine in the Back to the Future films, made a popular return, wooing patrons with its unique design and opening mechanism.
