One reason for the crowds around Bradford's City Hall last weekend was the annual Classic Car Show - a popular event for young and old alike. There was a huge variety of cars, including a beautiful 1910 Rolls Royce Silver Ghost, a Jaguar R3 Formula One racing car once driven by Eddy Irvine, a Mini converted into a hearse, numerous MG sports cars, made-in-Bradford Jowett cars and vans and a few big mean American machines. It's nice to see that kind of variety, from ordinary little family cars to high performance super-cars and lots in between. I'm no connoisseur but I loved this one above. A 1959 Cadillac Eldorado?
Don't get distracted by the 'London 2012' sign - this is Bradford!
