Saturday 09 July 2016
 
 
Car fans set their alarm clocks for first thing this morning to enjoy a unique motoring event taking place in Swindon.
 
As part of the Swindon175 celebrations this year, a special parade of cars 'Made in Swindon' at what was Pressed Steel Fisher (now BMW) took place on the Magic Roundabout at 7.00am.

Pressed Steel first started in Swindon in 1956, so as part of their own 60th Anniversary they joined forces with Swindon175 to stage the display.
 
MGs, Jaguars, Minis and more
 
The cavalcade included an incredible collection of 70+ classic and modern cars including Minis, MGs, Jaguars, Rileys, Triumphs and more - all of which steel bodywork was made in Swindon.
 
And what better place to celebrate than our very own, world famous, Magic Roundabout!
