Supported by RTS services, it marks the 47th year of the event organised by The Ipswich Transport Museum when it first started back in 1970.

Spectators, including Felixstowe residents and daytrippers, were able to take a step back through time as Morris Minors, classic VW Beetles, vintage Chevrolets and even a Rolls Royce graced the promenade.
