Owners of vintage, classic and modern classic vehicles from across the north-east made the trip to Turriff on Sunday to showcase their cars, lorries, tractors and even steam-engines at the event.

Returning for the first time since back in 2019 pre-Covid, the Turriff and District Vintage and Classic Club welcomed several hundred exhibitors and visitors to the show field site at the Haughs.

Split into sections, the large display of tractors covered many of the well known names over the years as well as offering some more exotic and less well-known manufacturers.

Several of the local haulage firms offered up their rigs for display and at the other end of the scale there was much attention paid to Iain Sutherland from Inverurie's display of Raleigh bikes which included several Choppers, Grifters and lesser known ones including the Budgie and the Striker.

Local owners displaying on the day included Steve Scott from Turriff whose immaculate 1986 D reg Capri drew admiring looks from many attending.

Fellow exhibitor Cameron Anderson from Turriff had gained attention prior to the event with his efforts to get one of his vintage cars back on the road for the first time, and brought along his Chrylser Kew.
