Village green transformed for motor show

A normally tranquil Fylde coast village was transformed into a hotbed of hot rod action.., all for a good cause.

Vintage and performance cars descended on Wrea Green for the village’s annual car carnival, a chance for car owners to show off their pride and joy and to raise cash for a good cause.

Hundreds of vehicles, from hot-rods to tractors, from combine harvesters to classic E-Type Jaguars packed onto the village green.

And there were plenty of excited onlookers, taking advantage of a rare opportunity to look under the bonnet on some truly classic cars.

And Blackpool was well represented in the line up of performance motors, with plenty of TVRs on show.

Among the more unusual exhibits was a 1925 Bullnose Morris Oxford, property of the Lakeview Rest Home, in which residents are often taken for a jaunt.

And four-legged friends weren’t ignored with Gary Bonnette and Maizie from Little Limos doing the rounds in a miniature VW Beetle.

The event, organised by J Wareing and Sons, raises cash for Trinity Hospice.
