Vintage car owners choose Island for celebration

A spectacle is promised as the Island prepares to turn back the clock over the next five days.

Thirty-six Model T Fords are due to arrive on Manx shores today (Friday), three of them dating from as long ago as 1911.

They are coming over for the 2010 Isle of Man Tour, a 50th anniversary celebration for the Model T register of Great Britain.

Organiser on the Island Ray Pinnock says locals will have a number of chances to view the famous old cars, the first being the Gordon Bennett Trial tomorrow (Saturday):
