THE Millport Classic Car Event is back with a bang this weekend – with a very special car set to steal the show.

The popular event in the grounds of Garrison House is back to full capacity after a curtailed number of years and organisers are expecting a big crowd on Saturday.

Bringing the event 'back to the future' will be a DeLorean, owned by an islander who just emigrated from California.

The brand became famous as the vehicle used by Doc and Marty McFly to time travel in the famous movie trilogy.

Organiser Lynne Bogan reveals that the event was so popular, spaces went almost instantly.

She said: “We’re delighted to say we’ve got a full capacity.

“A lot of people have been hearing about it through word of mouth and everyone knows it’s a very friendly show but still with great quality vehicles.

“You can come along and have a chat with the car owners, and it is a really great experience that you won’t forget.”

Lynne says she is looking forward to the DeLorean's arrival - but is hoping it's not thrown off course by the weather.

She explained: “We are hoping for a sunny day because the owner can’t drive it in the rain.

“There are not many DeLorean’s out there right now and this might be one of the finest examples in the world.

“We’ve had a number of phenomenal vehicles over the years, and this year we’ve got car clubs from Ayrshire and Greenock, a kit car club and a Ford Capri one coming over.”

Lynne is hoping this year’s event can be one of the biggest ever, with a brand new music night on Friday kickstart the weekend.

She said: “We are having live music on in the Newton Bar with lots of nostalgic tunes to get everyone in the mood.

“We have talked to lots of people who are so excited to come over to Millport.

“CalMac have confirmed they will have two boats running so it means we can get all the cars in place for the 10am start.

“We are expecting a good crowd, and the public vote will be back this year which is very exciting and gives people the chance to get involved.”

The show is on in the grounds of Garrison House from 10am until 4pm on May 14 with entry free.
