WA­ROONA All Aus­tralian Car Day had its big­gest year yet with thou­sands drawn to the town by more than 400 vin­tage and clas­sic cars.

Hosted by the Just Cruizin’ Street Ma­chines car club, about 6000 peo­ple at­tended the show at Wa­roona Show­grounds.

Event co­or­di­na­tor Naomi Pur­cell said it was the event’s big­gest year yet with more than 430 cars on dis­play as well as mar­kets and food trucks.

“There’s still room for more though,” she said.

Ms Pur­cell said many com­mu­nity groups were es­sen­tial to the day in­clud­ing the Wa­roona Leos, Wa­roona Girl Guides, Wa­roona Play­group and Wa­roona District High School Year 6 stu­dents.

Ms Pur­cell said the event drew a lot of peo­ple from out­side Wa­roona to the town, with good feed­back from busi­nesses.

“It was great for tourism as well, lots of peo­ple com­ing to town,” she said.
