Hundreds of people turned out for the Ipswich to Felixstowe Historic Vehicle run on the 6 of may 2007. This year the vehicles were parked on the landward side of the promenade which appeared much safer on the dubious parts of the surface damaged during the winter tides. Many parents could be heard though shouting at their children to beware of falling over side of the promenade adjacent to the South Seafront Land, the lifeboat rescue team were spotted zooming along the front to spring into action if needed. Great interest was shown by the visitors for the hundreds of immaculate vehicles. Of particular interest were some of the more exotic vehicles including a 1936 Austin taxi with the for hire sign at the ready and a 1922 Stanley Steam Driven Car with an engine consisting of only 17 moving parts and capable of 50 MPH.
