It was a show for the motoring enthusiasts as the passionate car fanatics rolled out their best vehicles for Don Mario's monthly show and shine event.
The monthly event has gone from strength-to-strength in recent months and garnered a loyal following across Tasmania's motoring community.
Drivers from as far as Sorrel and as local as George Town flocked to the event to get a look at the wide class of cars ranging from replica racing cars to modern mustangs and vintage valiants and specialty cars.
Event organiser Rob Macedon said the event was important to help bring tourists out to George Town and support local businesses.
"I was bored, there was nowhere to get a coffee or whatever so we did this and said 'how do we attract cars?' I started an event ... and that gets a thousand cars on the last Saturday of the month," he said.
"I came to Tassie and said to my wife 'why don't we give George Town a boost?' and here we are ... it attracts [heaps] of people, last week we had a McLaren here."

Mr Macedon said people would be surprised to know Tasmania was home to a very passionate and enthusiastic motoring community.
"In Tasmania you've got guys that are actual enthusiasts and not just value speculators because let's face it some of the cars they're worth as much as the house the guy is living in," he said.
"Whereas in Sydney ... it's all about the money and not to be enthusiasts."
One of the most popular attractions at the show and shine was a 1929 studebaker rat rod owned by car enthusiasts Rob and Jen Pratt. The rat rod can do a quarter mile in 12.6 seconds.
Mr Macedon said that the monthly event had fostered a sense of community among Tasmanian car lovers who built friendships off the back the regular show and shine event.
"I love to see the people, people have met each other here when they haven't seen each other in 30 years, I get goosebumps when I see it ... people are catching up, having a coffee," he said.
"The event is getting stronger and stronger and more people are coming, the diversity of the cars and the quality of the cars is real enthusiasts. It is unbelievable and I just love it."
The show and shine event is held on the first Sunday of every month across from Don Mario's in George Town.
