Beech­worth cars purr at prospect

Ovens & Murray Advertiser - - NEWS -

BEECH­WORTH clas­sic car en­thu­si­asts are oiled up for Saturday’s Myrtle­ford Ro­tary Club and Myrtle­ford Chopped and Changed Kus­tom Car Club sec­ond an­nual Show ‘n’ Shine and Swap Meet at Myrtle­ford Show­grounds. Gates open at 8am af­ter set up from 6am. Kus­tom Car Club co-founder Garry Cole, who at­tended the Beech­worth pri­mary school Shown ‘n’ Shine in March, said the club had en­joyed great sup­port in Myrtle­ford and across the North East since it was formed two years ago.

He lined up at Myrtle­ford show­ground on Tuesday for a preview with fel­low founders Ste­fan Saric and Alby Bar­ton, mem­ber Steve Lamb and club pres­i­dent Will Wat­son, show­ing some of their col­lec­tive range – 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. Club pres­i­dent Will Wat­son said al­most 500 peo­ple at­tended the first Myrtle­ford Show ‘n’ Shine and it at­tracted 71 ve­hi­cle en­tries.

“It’ll be a great day on Saturday with a 1950s-60s dress-up theme com­pe­ti­tion, live mu­sic and a fash­ion pa­rade, and the cars, trucks and rods, of course,” he said.

Myrtle­ford Speed­way will also stage a dis­play.

All cars, tricks, hot rods and rat rods are wel­come for a $10 en­try fee. There will be a com­pe­ti­tions and prizes.

The en­try fee for adults is $5 and chil­dren un­der 12 can at­tend the Shine for free.
