CROMWELL CLASSIC CAR AND HOT ROD FESTIVAL
It just gets better every year, and this one was particularly notable for its variety. Southland Ford Falcon Club members organized another successful Cromwell Classic Car and Hot Rod Festival for 2018, held this year on January 20, with more than 600 cars on display in the recreation ground. Southland is experiencing a bumper holiday season, with temperatures hovering in the mid 30s, and the demand for anything liquid was huge. Kicking back and relaxing in the shade was the order of the day, along with enjoying the holiday atmosphere of this marvellous location.
This year’s festival was not only a chance for car enthusiasts and families to get together but also to showcase the extremely high standards of restoration and preparation of classic cars, pickups, trucks, and motorcycles, along with a mixture of trade stalls.
This year was also notable for having in attendance a variety of makes and models not often seen, along with a great mix of originalcondition cars. For example, there seemed to be a big surge in the numbers of Ford MKIII Zephyrs this year. The event is always well backed by a large group of sponsors, and the judges had a hard job selecting winners.
