The four-day festival – which takes place every three years – highlights classic hot rods, with a special emphasis on two-door Fords built in 1932, known affectionately as deuce coupes.

The owners of nearly 1,400 classic cars gathered to participate in various events that took them around the region, including the popular Poker Run and vehicle parade in Langford on Saturday.
