Thousands of East Anglian petrol-heads flocked to an estate on Sunday to admire a collection of cracking cars.
The third Elveden Classic and Vintage Car Show saw record numbers of car enthusiasts and their families come to see more than 200 cars of all shapes and sizes, plus motorbikes and campervans, and got the chance to chat to their owners.
Organised jointly by Bury Abbey Rotary Club and the NSPCC, the event in the Elveden Estate's walled garden is expected to have raised more than £14,000 for the NSPCC and Rotary charities.
Rotary Club president Richard Curtis, principal organiser of the car show, said the stunning weather on Sunday helped to attract more visitors than expected, with traffic queuing along both sides of the A11 to reach the event.
'We are delighted to see so many people having a great day out. Last year's show was marred by the weather but we know that the show is establishing itself as a fixture in the events calendar for the local area.
