AN array of horseless carriages came to a stop in the Bathurst central business district on Tuesday afternoon.
The cars are in Bathurst as part of the Horseless Carriage Club of America's seventh international tour, which started late last week.
A horseless carriage is any car built prior to 1916, getting their name from their appearance, and some of the ones in Bathurst this week were built as early as 1902.
Among the oldest cars was a 1902 Rambler, owned by Mudgee residents Rob Duffy and Russell Holden.
"We have a half share each. It's one we imported from America two years ago and it's believed to be the only one in Australia," Mr Duffy said.
"It was made by Jeffrey and Company in 1902 and the Jeffery Company used to make push bikes and they were called ramblers. So when they went into cars - this is their first one, I think, maybe their second - they just called it a Rambler."

Mr Duffy said he has always liked cars, but it wasn't until about eight years ago that he began to purchase historic cars and became involved in car clubs in this way.
The Horseless Carriage Club of America will be touring the Bathurst region until the end of the week, stopping in various villages and at significant locations.
The club went to Abercrombie House on Tuesday before coming to the CBD for its display and gaslight parade.
Mr Duffy said the tour had been great so far and the members were receiving a lot of help from the Bathurst Historic Car Club.
"Everybody has been very friendly and helpful. We have volunteers from the Bathurst Historic Car Club and they are just fantastic, helping us put the directional signs out, marshalling cars and directing traffic," he said.
