The Classic Car Show on August 18 saw hundreds of vintage vehicles and thousands of fans visit Stonham Barns for a display of some of the most famous cars in film and TV.

The 1968 model of Ford Mustang made famous by Hollywood legend Steve McQueen in the movie Bullitt was among one of the star attractions, coming all the way from Clacton.

A model of 1974 Rolls Royce Silver Shadow similar to cars once owned by Tom Jones, George Best and motorbike legend Barry Sheene took pride of place next to a De Lorean DMC 12 as featured in the 1985 blockbuster, Back to the Future.

Cult classics were also at the show, with a 1977 Mini Moke - a military Jeep-style vehicle - which featured in the iconic 1960s show, The Prisoner.
