BEDFORDALE is set to be­come a car-lover’s heaven this week­end.

From hot rods to pick-up trucks and Mus­tangs to Ford Anglias, there’s some­thing for every car af­fi­cionado to lay eyes on in be­tween pe­rus­ing the stalls at the Bedfordale Bush Markets.

Bush Markets stall man­ager Kather­ine Jol­ley said they were pre­dict­ing around 50 or 60 classic cars to roll up to their first car show - but there might be even more than that.

“It’s some­thing dif­fer­ent up in Bedfordale, and car shows are al­ways fun,” Mrs Jol­ley said.

The money raised from the $5 en­try for each vin­tage car will go to the local fire brigade.

Mrs Jol­ley has been vol­un­teer­ing with the Bush Markets group for the last 18 months, and said they were a great op­por­tu­nity for the com­mu­nity to get to­gether.

“It’s funny, be­cause I Daniel Cata­laco with his HQ 1973, Rob Reed with his 1967 Mus­tang Fast­back and Matthew Jol­ley with his HK 1969.

started do­ing the markets by hav­ing a stall with my girl­friend, be­cause I live down the road and I didn’t know any­one.

“It’s good be­ing able to meet all your neigh­bours and con­nect with each other, and gives us an op­tion to do some­thing in our own back yard,” she said.

“We sup­port all the local com­mu­nity groups up here the firies run the bar­be­cue, the playgroup do the kids’ ac­tiv­i­ties, the wildlife so­ci­ety of Bun­gen­dore Park do free wildlife walks. So it’s all about sort of help­ing each other out.”

The 45 mar­ket stalls com­ing to the next Bush Markets will be sell­ing plants, art, food and more, with ac­tiv­i­ties for kids and a band en­ter­tain­ing.

The Bedfordale Bush Markets are hap­pen­ing this Satur­day, May 27, from 8am to 1pm.
