Some beautifully restored classic cars were spotted on their way to Dundee Museum of Transport’s recent birthday celebrations.

The long stream of vehicles made their way through Montrose and also made a pit stop at the House of Dun.

The museum had an open day with free buses laid on for the public by Stagecoach.

It coincided with National Drive It Day, which meant there were all manner of classic gems to be seen swishing past with elegant drivers happy to wave to onlookers.

Every year Drive It Day commemorates the 64 cars that left London on the first day of the Thousand Mile Trial on 23 April 1900.

The Royal Automobile Club Thousand Mile Trial started in London and passed through Bristol, Birmingham, Manchester - travelled all through Scotland - then passed back through England until they were back in London again, 46 out of 65 starting cars made it to the finish line.

Last Sunday (April 26) was a day to share and display all types of vehicles from VW campers to motorcycles, military vehicles and cars young and old.
