An array of gleaming vintage motors, ranged along the seafront Kordonboyu leading into the picturesque yacht harbour, attracted the attention of tourists and classic car enthusiasts alike.

The ninth annual display, organised by the North Cyprus Classic Car Association and sponsored by mobile phone operators Vodafone Telsim, took place in a street party atmosphere, with DJs Yusuf Coşkuner, Halil Erhan and Reverse Impact entertaining for six hours with a series of ’80s and ’90s hits.
