For lining the front and parts of Regent Road were dozens of vehicle not dissimilar to these cartoon characters.

However, these were no Wacky Racers. Instead, these were genuine vintage and classic cars, which turned more than a few heads as they came to town.

A parade of pre-1972 hot rods, street rods and American custom cars were displayed for all to see Saturday afternoon, attracting many admiring eyes.

It was part of the National Street Rod Association's Fun Run, which is taking place at Great Yarmouth Racecourse all weekend.
