PURRING MOTORING NOSTALGIA SET FOR SHOW
MYRTLEFORD Rotary Club and Myrtleford Chopped and Changed Kustom Car Club on Saturday host the community’s second annual Show ‘n’ Shine and Swap Meet at Myrtleford Showgrounds. Kustom Car Club co-founders Garry Cole (front), Stefan Saric and Alby Barton, member Steve Lamb and club president Will Watson (not pictured) brought some of their collective range out for a preview on Tuesday – including a 1964 XM Ford Falcon, 1975 Daimler, Holden HR utility, 1957 Chevrolet pick-up and 1966 Valiant. Alby thinks Her Late Majesty the Queen Mother would have enjoyed a ride in his Daimler if ever she had visited Myrtleford. “It would have been the right car,” he said.
