TRANSPORT enthusiasts took a trip down memory lane at a rally of classic vehicles.
Buses and coaches, cars, motorcycles and commercial vehicles were all on display at the Kirklees and Huddersfield Transport Rally.
It was held in the St Andrews car park at the Galpharm Stadium for the first time after being moved from Greenhead Park because of forthcoming restoration work.
Gordon Morson, of organisers Kirklees Transport Group, said the day had been a success.
He said: “We only had 88 vehicles registered before the day, but a lot more turned up on the day.
“Although Greenhead Park was a good location, we were tending to squeeze people in, whereas here we have a lot more room.
“It’s been very popular. I’m very happy.”
This year’s special section charted 125 years of public transport in Huddersfield.
A fleet of old buses were supplied by bus company First, which was sponsoring the event.
They included a Volvo Olympian bus decked out in the red and cream livery of Huddersfield Corporation Transport, based on the first rear-engined double-decker delivered to the company in 1967.
There was also a double-decker painted in the green and gold livery of the original Todmorden Corporation from 100 years ago.
Among the classic car exhibitors were Melvin Turpin and his son Adam, from Wakefield.
They were showing their 1973 Reliant Regal – the same model driven by Del Boy in the comedy series Only Fools and Horses.
Mr Turpin and his son, who bought the car on internet auction site Ebay, have spent the last few months restoring it.
Mr Turpin said: “We restored a 1982 Reliant, but Adam always wanted one of the old ones, so we bought this one and have done it up together.
“They are getting rarer and rarer nowadays. It gets a really good reaction from people because of Only Fools and Horses.”
Tom Kyte, from Halifax, brought his 1934 Morris Commercial, an old brewers’ delivery truck, to the rally.
He and a friend spent about six years restoring it after buying it from a scrap merchant, who had it in a skip for about 16 years.
Mr Kyte said: “The skip was in a better condition than the truck. But it’s an extremely rare vehicle – there are only about 50 of this type in the country. We take it all over to shows.”
Sunday’s rally, which has a 30-year history, could be the last.
The organisers say a drop in the number of volunteers and companies wanting to sponsor the event mean it is not feasible to run.
