All trucks big and small were on display and celebrated at the Royal Flying Doctor Service's truck run on Sunday.
The run, which finished at the Longford Showgrounds, more than $25,000 for the service in their 60th anniversary year.
The event was supported by the Truck Owners and Operators Association and saw more than 70 trucks from across the state take part in the event.
Glenda Emmerton, and husband Mick, travelled from Sorell to partake in the event.
"We heard about the truck run on Facebook and 12 months ago, we were heading to the mainland to take the truck over there for truck shows but then COVID struck and we had to can all that so there's been no truck show since the beginning of COVID," she said.
"The convoy was amazing, it was really good and it's for a good cause as well."
