In Pictures: Selkirk Vintage Rally
Owners and lovers of vintage vehicles enjoyed their last hurrah of the season at Sunderland Hall, near Selkirk, over the weekend.
It has always been a popular date in the calendar for those who keep their beloved pride and joys in top nick before they are packed away for the winter, and the 2018 Selkirk Vintage Rally proved no different.
Chairman of the organising committee, Gordon Edgar, told us: “It went really well, with a similar number of entries and visitors to recent years, and fantastic weather over the two days.
“The Saturday saw the vehicles do a 50-mile circuit through the Borders, which was enjoyed by all.
“Many came back to the field to tell us that this year was the best run they’ve ever had here.
“It’s always been a very friendly rally, which attracts a strong support, as it’s the last event of the circuit for most owners, before their vehicles are put away for the winter months.
“This year, there were 813 entries in all, including trade stands. There was also a lot of interest in the Land-Rovers, which were there in all sizes, shapes and ages, as they were celebrating their 70th birthday.
Highlights included several fire engines, a 1925 Model T Ford found in Kansas, complete with bullet-holes in one of its doors, and a blast from the past in the form of a green-liveried SMT bus from the 1970s, but taking the best in show was James Pringle, of Galashiels, with a 1911 Model T Ford.
