Joint publican Jo Cooke said an estimated 3,000 people attended during Sunday, and the sum raised for the Big C charity was £8,000 - up on last year's total of £7,000.

'It has just been getting bigger and bigger. We even had to turn away some car entrants this year because we were full,' she added.

The event was manned by pub staff, friends, family, Big C volunteers and Army cadets - with the Riley Club judging the vehicles.

Club member Steve Kinch from East Runton said the show had been phenomenal, and the standard of entries really high.

'We had everything from 100-year-old steam cars, to Ferraris, Vauxhalls, MGs, US hot rods, and even a motorbike with a V8 engine,' he added.

'It is a great show because of the atmosphere. The condition of cars is so good - not because of competitiveness, ut because people have a passion and put everything into it.'

Big C community fundraising manager Diane Northway said: 'It was an absolutely beautiful and phenomenal day. Numbers exceeded anything before - they just kept rolling up. In the three years I've been involved I've never seen anything like it.'
