A familiar wonder on the Isle of Wight, at fetes and events, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang was created by Islander Nicholas Pointing.

It is a faithful recreation of the original, seen in the 1968 British musical, which starred Dick Van Dyke and Sally Ann Howes.

The Islander is no stranger to glory, thanks to his marvellous creation. Last year, he was shortlisted in the competition to find Britan's Best Shed!
