An Albion truck from 1917, so over 100 years old, was among the veteran vehicles at Saffron Walden Motor Show.
Hundreds of visitors and vehicle owners turned up to the 11th annual event on the Common on Sunday, August 12.
The Albion truck may have been used during the First World War.
Other colourful sights included a New York yellow cab, a light blue, fully restored Austin Healey 100, sports car (they were built between 1954 and 1956) 1960s-style scooters and a Lowrider Lada.
The Uttlesford Morris Minors Owners’ Club were there with their cherished cars. The show’s organiser, Roger Abbot showed two American cars, a New York Police Department Ford Explorer from 1997 and a red Chevy Pickup from 1979.
He said “The threat of heavy rain may have put some people off but we still had over 500 people there. There were collections for the Arthur Rank Hospice in Cambridge and for Riding for The Disabled in Radwinter and both said they were pleased with the donations, there were plenty of notes.”
