Organised by the Beechworth Old Cranks Motor Club Inc, it's sure to show off a stunning display of vintage and classic cars, motorcycles and engines - the only pre-requisite being that they must be over 25-years old.

This year's event will begin on Saturday with a Tractor Run departing from the Old Railway Goods Shed at 10 AM, followed by a BBQ lunch at the Goods Shed from 12 Noon and the Cruise Back in Time street cruise through the historic streets of Beechworth, heading off from the same location at 4.30 PM.

There'll be a jumbo raffle drawn at 2 PM following a presentation of the Show & Shine trophies.

BBQ food will be available throughout the day with plenty of coffee, tea & soft drinks available.

The Beechworth Old Cranks Motor Club Inc. was established in 1997 by a group of likeminded car and engine enthusiasts.

Today it boasts more than 50 members who work very hard to ensure the annual Drive Back in Time event is a roaring success.

Beechworth is 278 Kilometres northeast of Melbourne, just over a 3-hour drive via the National Highway M31 and the C315.
