CAR-LOVERS should head down to the Bicester Scramble today, where hundreds of vintage and antique cars are being displayed in the sunshine.

The event at Bicester Heritage is in its eighth year and has attracted a variety of vehicles this year, including a vintage double decker bus and a pristine Aston Martin DB5.

Toby Service, an auctioneer at Brightwells, said he thought the day would be a roaring success, adding that it was a pleasure to be in the company of so many motoring fanatics. 

He said: "It's the first time we've come down here as we're actually based in Herefordshire.

"It's great to have come along to such a wonderful event with such a great atmosphere, there are so many people smiling and having a good time.

"It's a bit of car retreat for vintage and antique cars, which is great."

The Oxfordshire Home Guard Living History Group are also on hand in full uniform and equipment, to celebrate the tradition of the day. 

Platoon commander Brian Tegg said: "We've come every year to support the Scramble, so that's eight years now.

"We always have lots of people coming up to us and asking us lots of questions about World War II and what we do now.

"There are always so many people at the Scramble that are interested in what we do and it's lovely to be able to talk to so many."

Aston Martin owner, Debbie Willett, said she thought the Bicester Scramble was a wonderful day out.

She said: "Looking at lovely cars in lovely weather - what more could you want?

"It's a great way to spend my Sunday."
