Where better to celebrate the Swinging Sixties than at Chelsea AutoLegends - an event that�s staged within a Gordon Banks punt of the trendy King's Road, the fashion heart of the lovingly remembered hippy chic era.

This year�s Chelsea AutoLegends will be turning back the clocks fifty years. It will be marking the golden anniversary with special displays dedicated to some of the iconic race and road cars that were all the rage in swinging London, as the drab post war years of the Forties and Fifties were swept aside by a far happier decade that spawned flower power, the Beatles plus, of course, the mini skirt.

The Sixties were all about fun with the UK � and notably Chelsea � leading the world in fashion, design and pop music.

The fun-loving decade also spawned four British F1 World Champions: Jim Clark, Graham Hill, John Surtees and Jackie Stewart who raced British built cars from legendary marques such as Cooper, BRM, Lotus and Brabham. Many of these revered grand prix machines will be reliving their glory years at Chelsea AutoLegends, along with some of the heroic drivers who raced them.

Away from the race track, the British motor industry was forging ahead with trend-setting new models such as the Austin Mini and Jaguar E-Type � two of most iconic cars of any generation and regular King's Road cruisers.

The groovy Swinging Sixties theme will run through the whole show, and will add a very special new dimension to Chelsea AutoLegends in 2011. Be sure to wear some flowers in your hair�
