In the end, 56 of the hottest vehicles imaginable entered for the 14th Kerrie Floyd Memorial Car Show at Anzac Park on Saturday.
They roared into town on four wheels and two from all parts of northern New South Wales and southern Queensland.
The weather held out to give a sparkle to a lot of shiny metal.
And a purple lustre to the hair of Rae Patterson from Tamworth – along with her fabulous car.
One of the organisers, Helen O’Brien, said: “Congratulations to the winners on the day and a big thanks to our sponsors: Shannons, Floyds Transport, Grey Street Spare Parts & New England Rod & Customs.”
