There will be a range of prizes on of­fer, and the day will end with a ca­sual cruise. En­try will be via gold-coin do­na­tion, with all pro­ceeds go­ing to­wards the Dream Chaser Foun­da­tion. The show will be­gin at 12pm, and any queries can be directed to the Cul­ture — Back­street Car Meet page on Face­book.
