Cruisers to host first ma­jor event of the year

Whitsunday Times - - MOTORING -

CAR en­thu­si­asts and the like are in for a treat with two car dis­plays from Cruisin’ Whit­sun­day to be held this Satur­day and Sun­day.

Crusin’ Whit­sun­day will be the first ma­jor event of the year by lo­cal group Whit­sun­day Cruisin’ Car Club with an ex­pected 50 cars and 100 peo­ple at­tend­ing.

Fes­tiv­i­ties kick off on Satur­day morn­ing with a car dis­play in Air­lie Beach.

From 9.30-11.30am out­side Ship­wrecked Bar and Grill and along the fore­shore, there will be ve­hi­cles from the ‘50‘80s parked in pride for on­look­ers to gawk at.

Then club mem­bers will go for a cruise to Dingo Beach for a tra­di­tional pub lunch fol­lowed by din­ner at Reef Gate­way Ho­tel.

Af­ter Sun­day’s break­fast at the Gate­way, cruisers will head into Proser­pine to have their ve­hi­cles on dis­play at Whit­sun­day Gold Cof­fee where the week­end will wind down with cof­fee and catch ups.

Pres­i­dent Chris Coyte said although the cruise part of the week­end is in­vite-only ev­ery­one is in­vited to at­tend the dis­plays.

“You’ll find ev­ery­thing from Volk­swa­gen bug­gies to four­door Chevy Hot Rods,” he said.

“The whole process has been mind-blow­ing. When we first put the call out we were ex­pect­ing a dozen cars and now we’ve had to cap it off at 50.”

Mr Coyte is ea­ger to get this week­end’s show on the road.

“Coun­cil have ap­proved us to park in the fore­shore and we also want to thank Dingo Beach Pub and Reef Gate­way who will put on our meals and Whit­sun­day Gold for the cof­fees that will be had.”

“We also have a bunch of guests stay­ing at Big4 car­a­van park.”

The Whit­sun­day Cruisin’ Car Club will also be on dis­play at Su­percheap Auto for their Club Plus night on Tues­day March 17 from 5pm.

PA­RADE: Vin­tage and re­stored ve­hi­cles from the 50-80's will be on dis­play at the Air­lie Beach fore­shore this Satur­day and Whit­sun­day Gold Cof­fee on Sun­day.
