The Retro Rides of Windsor

Words & Images - James Ross

We recently took a short family trip to Windsor, mainly to visit the Castle and Legoland etc, but I was pleasantly surprised to find a whole load of interesting cars on the roads. It's clearly quite a wealthy area, and every 4th or 5th car was something fairly exotic, but amongst the mix of modern supercars and high end 4x4's was a scattering of retro rides.

I'm not sure if it was the sunny bank holiday that brought these cars out to play, or if Windsor has an above average amount of people with good taste in old metal, but here's a selection of photos that I managed to capture inbetween trying to spot the Queen.
