Eye-catching and colourful customised cars will line Felixstowe seafront on Saturday – providing a spectacular display for residents and visitors.

The invasion of gleaming custom cars and hot rods will line the prom and organisers say up to 500 are expected to take part.

It will be the seventh annual cruise to the seaside by members of the National Association of Street Clubs (NASC), who are camping at the Suffolk Showground, Trinity Park, during the weekend for their Street Rod Nationals event.

Setting up is already taking place at the showground ready for the first arrivals tomorrow morning.

NASC chairman John Pryor said: “It’s looking really good and we are set for a great weekend – we are just keeping our fingers crossed for the weather.
