The Cooma Car Club have celebrated their 20 year anniversary in style with the biannual Motorfest a huge hit with automotive fans on Saturday.

With rows of cars all polished and sparkling, big trucks, bikes old and new and country music to set the scene, fans flocked to Cooma Showground to wander and admire classic cars, muscles cars and most that have been attended to by passionate owners.

On display was upwards of $10 million worth of machinery, many owned by he 166 members of hosts the Cooma Car Club.

Club President Kel Goodman said prior to the event members enjoy the cars and they all meet a lot of people outside of Cooma who all have a common interest.

That was evident on Saturday with many admirers wandering the isles where owners interacted with visitors to talk about their pride and joy, and perhaps the hours spent on each vehicle.

Pictured in the gallery are some of the cars, including local owners.
