Beau­ti­ful beasts

En­thu­si­asts show off and shine at Crush at the Creek

I left the Boop plates on – that way you know it’s a woman’s car.

— Jen­nifer Zoet

“THE loud­est it goes is about 142 deci­bels,” Matt Alchin said.

“A plane tak­ing off is about 140.”

You never know what you might find at a lo­cal car show and the Show n Shine event at this year’s Crush at the Creek was full of sur­prises.

Matt was show­ing off his Alpine sound sys­tem, in­stalled in both the boot and back seat of his Hyundai Ex­cel.

Dave Zunker was show­ing off his rare 1971 Valiant Charger which he says “kept him go­ing” through a bat­tle with cancer. “As soon I was well enough to leave hos­pi­tal, I flew to Mel­bourne to pick it up,” he said.

Restor­ing it “made me strong in the mind...my dream car helped save my life”.

Cas­san­dra Hill has made her vin­tage Ford Fal­con her own – com­plete with “hers not his” on the rear win­dow.

“When I get out of the car peo­ple ask me, ‘Is that your hus­band’s car?’” she said.

Jen­nifer Zoet is fa­mil­iar with the feel­ing.

She owns a bold yel­low Holden SS Thun­der Com­modore ute which she re­cently fit­ted with match­ing rims.

“I left the Betty Boop plates on – that way you know it’s a woman’s car,” she said. Cas­san­dra and Jen­nifer are both part of a group of women in the re­gion who own V8s.
