Car show steers char­ity for­ward

RAIS­ING FUNDS FOR CAMP QUAL­ITY

Isis Town and Country - - Front Page -

THE Isis Club put on a spec­tac­u­lar show on Satur­day to sup­port Camp Qual­ity, with its first car and bike show.

Churchill St was crowded with cars and peo­ple as rock and roll drove into town.

The Isis Club en­ter­tained spec­ta­tors with mu­sic, food and drinks.

Fea­tured in the show were hot rods, mus­cle cars, cus­toms, clas­sic, vintage cars and bikes.

The beau­ti­ful spring weather drew peo­ple from Bris­bane, Her­vey Bay, Rock­hamp­ton and Gympie.

The show and shine car dis­play had many great en­trants.

Al­wyn Har­rip said his vintage car would turn 90 this year.

“The spare tyre is 60 years old,” he said.

The car was pur­chased new in 1925 and was only used once a month to drive into town.

“The four tyres were changed 35 years ago,” Mr Har­rip said.

The pris­tine car only ven­tures out on spe­cial oc­ca­sions.

The crowds en­joyed tak­ing self­ies with the cars and post­ing photos on so­cial media.

The event or­gan­is­ers were pleased with the event and the well-be­haved crowds.

Or­gan­iser Ross McGaw said: “I would like to thank the SES for all the sup­port on Satur­day, they did a great job.

“I have so many peo­ple to thank for all the ef­fort put in.” Mr McGaw thanked the Aus­tralian Street Rod Fed­er­a­tion, Rod Inc, for the prizes, Pri­or­ity for the traf­fic con­trol and all the car clubs.

“The event was made pos­si­ble from the group ef­fort of all the car clubs,” he said.

Isis Club man­ager Kerry Smythe said it was a bril­liant day and Camp Qual­ity had raised much-needed funds.

Event or­gan­is­ers have de­cided to hold the event next year.

“For our first event we were pleased and we have started on plan­ning next year and we prom­ise to make it big­ger and bet­ter,” Mr McGaw said.

The event at­tracted 60 cars and two mo­tor­bike en­trants.

The com­pe­ti­tion had many strong con­tenders and it was dif­fi­cult for the judges. Con­grat­u­la­tions to all of the win­ners in this year’s event.
