The Antique, Classic and collector Car Show took place in Florida over the weekend for the 35th year in a row, with more than 300 vehicles turning up at the event, to mark this significant milestone.
Seventy year old Clark Ballard told TCPalm News, that taking his 1929 Ford Model A to the show was a real treat. He also said that he enjoyed the experience of looking over the vintage vehicles maintained by other enthusiasts.
Mr Ballard said that people come from far and wide to attend the Vero Beach show, with visitors travelling from across the state in order to take part.
Any vehicle built prior to 1980 is eligible for entry and it is estimated that over 7,000 people were present at the show throughout the weekend.
A homeless charity which delivers food to those living on the streets was supported by the show, with the benefits being passed on to local food banks and other sheltered housing in the area.
The ongoing success of this particular show, which is organised in conjunction with the Antique Automobile Club of America, seems set to keep it coming back over the next few years.
