From AC Cobras and Mustangs and even VW Beetles to Ferarri, Porsche and Lotus models, there were admiring glances from the crowds that joined in the event.

As well as the ever-popular food supply, which drivers who attend the weekly V8 restaurant breakfasts travel for, there was a visit from Scottish Fire and Rescue who attended one of the local station units who is located just around the corner and which has seen young and old peer over the equipment and of course sit in the coveted crew seats.
