The day raised �608 for the Exeter FORCE charity - the most the event had raised.

Vintage car owners from as far away as Cornwall travelled to Exmouth to show of their pride and joys.

Visitors flocked to the Imperial Recreation Ground to see the rows of vintage cars, which dated back more than 50 years old.
