GAYNDAH residents were drawn outside on a wet Sunday by the sound of vintage cars rumbling down the street.

Fraser Coast Historic Vehicle Club and the Maryborough District Antique Motor Club cruised to Gayndah to visit the renowned Citroen collection located in town.

Vintage Jaguars, Holdens, Austins, Crestas, Fiats, Fords and Vauxhalls were just some of the vehicles participating in the rally, which brought more than 60 people to Gayndah.

Fraser Coast Historic Vehicle Club president David Trigg said both clubs were eager to see the collection of Citroens restored by local car buffs Peter Huth and Les Hay.

But half the fun was showing off their own rides.

"We get just as much enjoyment showing off our cars as we do coming to see a collection like this," Mr Trigg said.

"You get people pop out to see us as we drive through town."
