This weekend would have seen the opening of Grampian Transport Museum, one of the major tourist draws to Aberdeenshire.
Each year the museum draws hundreds of classic and vintage vehicle owners from across Scotland for a series of events showcasing both manufacturers as on AllFord day and the rarer editions of mass produced cars on How Many Left day.
With events curtailed for the next few months, owners including members of Turriff and District Vintage and Classic Club, while working and maintaining vehicles have been missing out of the rally event spirit that brings so many of them together to meetings such as Fennel in Inverurie's V8 Sunday morning meet-ups and the May Day event in Turriff.
But for those who are sitting at home, one of the well known companies who produce the distinctive event plates seen on cars have come up with a Stay at Home fundraiser.
Dragonfly Rally are turning over 100 per cent of profits from each sale of a limited edition rally plate to NHS Charities Together | Covid-19 Appeal
