Thousands of spectators enjoyed the sunshine and the sparkling motoring exhibits at the Borders Vintage Automobile Club’s 42nd Historic Motoring Extravaganza at Thirlestane Castle, Lauder on Sunday.
With a record entry of more than 1,000 vehicles, there was something to see for everyone.
There were special displays celebrating the American classic car, including the iconic Ford Mustang and the muscle power Corvette models which paraded around the arena, accompanied by some American Cheerleaders.
There was also a large contingent of M.G cars celebrating 90 years of the famous octagonal badge, an exciting stunt plane display and the Sporting Bears who were undertaking dream rides in a wide range of exotic cars, with the proceeds going to Borders children’s charities.
Chairman of the B.V.A.C., Fred Magill commented: “The event was one of the most successful yet for the club and we thank all the entrants, sponsors and the public who helped make the event one of the top ten rallies in the country.”
Mrs Sarah Maitland- Carew presented the trophies with awards going to entrants from all over Scotland and northern England.
