Shiny bikes and cars set to thrill
More than 200 vintage bikes and cars are expected to be displayed at this year’s Car Show and Shine.
The Corowa District Car Club is excited for this year’s event which will again be located at the Corowa RSL carpark.
The Show will be held on Sunday, September 9 from 9am to 2pm with a packed crowd yet again expected to enjoy a day of family fun that includes face painting, jumping castles, food stalls and raffle prizes.
But the biggest attraction of all is the hundreds of both modern and antique vehicles that are sure to arouse any car and bike enthusiast.
Corowa Car Club President Brad Moore is inviting everyone to take part in the day.
“Everyone come and tour the cars, see some vintage novelty that you’ve probably never seen before. There’ll be something there for everybody,” he told The Free Press.
“There will of course be other attractions than the cars and bikes, which will be amazing. People will be travelling far and wide and cars will be coming from all different clubs around the region. It will be good to see the amount of different cars and spectators attend the show.”
Mr Moore said he expects 200-300 cars of different sizes and shapes to be on show, as well as stylish motorcycles.
Static display cars and motors of all ages from Max’s Motor Museum in Corowa will also be on display at the Car Show and Shine, depending on how many of them they can get up and running.
They have vintage cars to modern cars, as well as oil engines and free standing V-12 Motors. The Museum’s private collection is another must-see brilliant display that also comprises vehicles belonging to local enthusiasts who house their cars at the museum.
All proceeds from the motor museum go to maintaining the building and local charities, upholding the community spirit left behind by the late Max Maclean – who was always community-minded. In 2002 he was named the Citizen of the Year for his outstanding community commitments.
Max had a wonderful passion for cars – Max’s Motor Museum is the perfect spot to see and appreciate how much he loved his cars and motors.
People are welcomed and encouraged to bring their own vintage cars along on the day. For further information, contact Corowa and District Car Club President Brad Moore via email here: email@example.com.
Known as Squizzy, this car was purchased by a doctor in Melbourne and was stolen in the 1920s. Later found in Violet Town, Squizzy was restored by Colin Anderson in 1961. The paint was brushed on with 16 coats and sanded between coats.
Often carrying 45-48 bags of wheat during its time as a farm truck, Max Maclean purchased this car and restored it in 2000.
