Over 1,200 cars attended the Classic Ford Show, making it one of the most successful shows ever.

With cars on display at Santa Pod in Bedfordshire, the event was ideal for Ford enthusiasts to get up close to some of their favourite vehicles. Over 7,000 fans attended to make the most of the opportunity.

With everything from Anglias to Fiestas, variety was the theme of the day. Standard restorations brushed shoulders with performance-tuned cars, and everything in between.

A highlight was a MK 1 Cortina which had been built from the ground-up in just four days by a group of friends. Alongside this came a 'great unveil' of future classic Ford cars, including a fully restored Corsair Convertible and a MK 2 Lotus Cortina 'Team Lotus'.

Also popular was the Old Skool Ford stand, which was attended by 116 cars – and as a result of the hard work of all there was awarded the Best Club Stand Award. The Autoperfekt show and shine was also won by an attendee on the Old Skool Ford stand, Lazio Horvath, with his MK 1 Fiesta.

Thankfully, fans of the show needn't wait another year to attend a Ford enthusiast event. July 16 marks the start of the Ford Summer Festival, which includes a run from Ford's original home in Dagenham to Brighton. There's also Ford Fair in August, meaning that there's all manner of events to keep even the most die-hard Blue Oval fan entertained over the summer months.
