A mid-week show on Harpenden Common in Hertfordshire seems an unlikely place to attract the public and classic car owners, but then again, Classics on the Common isn't your average car show.

Despite being held on a Wednesday afternoon for just a few hours, this event which is run by Harpenden Village Rotary Club, is in its 18th year and the prediction of 10,000 spectators seemed about right, as there were plenty of people enjoying a mouth-watering mix of 1200 classic vehicles.

Supposedly the youngest cars were just over 20 years old, but I spotted a Ferrari 458 Italia and wasn't allowed to enter my own 2006 MINI!

Here's my pick of the best cars on show:
