LAST Sunday, Mark Glover's 1989 Softail Custom motorbike saw the light of day for the first time since it had travelled across Australia from Perth to Esk.

Mr Glover's treasured ride was just one of hundreds of the Valley's hottest cars, utes and bikes which were on display at the Gatton Auxiliary Hospital annual fundraising show.

Co-organiser Anne-Louise Adams said the event raised almost $5000 to be contributed towards vital hospital equipment.

"We were really happy with the local support," she said.

"The cars we had were mostly from the Lockyer Valley which was really good."

The Gatton Muscle Car Club had the most cars on display and the best car in show went to David Archer for his Ford 1966 XP Falcon.

Rob King took home the best bike honour for his Game of Thrones-inspired 1996 Harley Davidson and Gary Rodgers won best ute with his Holden EH.
