Cars, bikes and models drew large crowds for the 9th Pattaya Motor Show at Central Festival Pattaya Beach.

Car and motorcycle enthusiasts mixed with shutterbugs snapping photos of the car “pretties” at the July 27-Aug. 2 show.

Central Festival General Manager Ranida Ratana­chaichok said the event drew both Thai and foreign car lovers from many provinces in the East and Bangkok.

While just a fraction of the size of Thailand’s two major motor shows, the Pattaya exhibit had models from BMW, Honda, Ford, Toyota, Mazda, MG, Gemasia and Harley-Davidson.

BMW used the show to highlight its new X2 while Ford showed off its new Ranger pickup model.

Entertainment was provided by Rose Quartz, while guys drooled over the “sexy bike wash” by Cherry Samkhok.
