Classic Supercars take over North London on Fathers Day

An incredible selection of classic supercars descended on North London on Sunday 19th June for the annual Classic and Supercar Pageant on St John’s Wood High Street. The fine weather brought out the crowds to the free event which happened to coincide with Fathers Day. And with the large number of rare blue chip classic cars on show, it really was a Father’s Day treat. Organised by the Retailer’s of St John’s Wood Business Association, the event is now in its fourth year, with proceeds on the day raised for the charity Rays of Sunshine.

The fine weather, fine classic cars and a closed high street brought out the crowds on Sunday.

The organisers gathered together an impressive array of classics, with some of the rarest and most desirable Ferrari’s and Aston Martins wowing the crowds. British racing legend Sir Stirling Moss also made an appearance in the afternoon. It wasn’t all glitz and glamour however with a handful of affordable everyday classics scattered amongst the all star line up. They may not have had the same investment value, but they had just as much charm and character.
