A PARADE of gleaming classic vehicles attracted hundreds of admirers at Southwold yesterday lunchtime.
Nearly 40 vehicles, ranging from a beautiful pre-war Rolls-Royce to utilitarian Army Jeeps, took part in the annual Halesworth to Southwold classic vehicle run.
A leisurely 34-mile drive through countryside and villages ended, by tradition, in front of Southwold Pier.
Organiser Cyril Salisbury, 74, of Reydon, the proud owner of a 1947 US Army Willys Jeep, said: 'We had a very good turnout with people coming from as far afield as Wymondham, Sheringham, Holt and Ipswich to take part.

'When we arrived in Southwold we were greeted by another 12 vehicles, the owners of which had decided not to take part in the run, but to turn up at the end.'
The retired post office manager said a crowd of people turned up specially to see the vehicles, which also included a 1953 MG and a late 1940s Triumph Mayflower.
