As well as cars, vehicles at the show also included steam engines, classic coaches and military vehicles.

The event, organised by the Farm Machinery Preservation Society, was held at Long Melford Hall on both Saturday and Sunday.

Stunts by brave motorcyclists as part of the Luke Fox Wall of Death show was one of the main attractions in the central arena.

An auction of vintage parts was also held at the rally, which has a long history.

It is the ninth year the rally has been held in the grounds of Long Melford Hall by kind permission of Sir Richard and Lady Hyde-Parker.

The Farm Machinery Preservation Society celebrated its 45th anniversary last year.
