One hundred bright yellow cars cruised through the small town of Bibury, England, over the weekend to show their support for a local resident.
Peter Maddox, an 84-year-old villager has been bothered by tourists visiting the picturesque 14th-centuary Arlington Row because his yellow Vauxhall Corsa (parked outside his cottage) was ‘photobombing’ the scene. Earlier this year, a vandal scratched the word’s ‘MOVE’ into the side of Maddox’s car.
In an effort to show solidarity for Maddox, Coventry-resident Matty Bee called for a celebration of “anything yellow” and for a fleet of yellow vehicles to drive through Bibury. There were so many people that wanted to join in, that the organizers had to set a limit of 100 cars for safety reasons.
“The response has been amazing and overwhelming; people from all over the country and all over the world have applied to join the group. We’ve had everything here from a three-wheeler and a Mini to a Lamborghini super car…I’ve never seen so many yellow colored cars in one place,” said Bee in an interview with UPI.
