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.
