Auto fans are in for a field day
HOT cars, vintage styles, custom fit-outs and spare parts – it will be a car lover’s dream.
The Top of the State Hot Rod and Custom Car Club Inc is holding a swap meeting and car show at Cannon Park Jockey Club on Sunday to raise money for the Gordonvale Men’s Shed.
Organiser Barry Wilkins said construction for the Men’s Shed would begin soon and while it had council approval and a funding grant, more money was needed for electricity.
“A man really needs a shed,” Mr Wilkins said.
“We feel for these guys because a lot of them don’t have their own sheds.
“It’s an opportunity to get something happening.
“We’ve now got about 100 swap sites.”
So far, 50 of these had been booked for people to set up to sell car and motorcycle parts.
Mr Wilkins said that a good number of people had indicated they would be displaying their prize vehicles, but those numbers would be booked on the day.
There would be everything, he said, from hot rods to custom and modified cars, muscle cars to vintage classics.
Those attending will be asked to choose their favourite cars, and about midday the People’s Choice winners would be selected and the trophies handed out.
“It is a car lover’s dream,” Mr Wilkins said.
The swap will open bright and early from 6am.
Mr Wilkins said it would be a great opportunity to pick up some parts with a huge variety on offer.
