Clas­sic car show call to con­verted

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

Petrol­heads across the re­gion will be pol­ish­ing chrome and turn­ing wrenches, in prepa­ra­tion for the up­com­ing Shan­non Spec­tac­u­lar Car Show.

The an­nual show, on Fe­bru­ary 22 at the Shan­non Do­main, at­tracts hun­dreds of ve­hi­cles and thou­sands of spec­ta­tors.

Janette Camp­bell, sec­re­tary of the Shan­non Pro­gres­sive As­so­ci­a­tion that or­gan­ises the event, says the day has been held for about seven years, as a com­mu­nity fundraiser.

‘‘Peo­ple can just come along and see cars that are there. But ide­ally they bring their own spe­cial car or ve­hi­cle or bike and have it on dis­play, and that is free.

‘‘ We wel­come any kind of ve­hi­cle and that’s what makes it so in­ter­est­ing, be­cause there’s al­ways such a wide and di­verse range of cars.’’

Levin’s Smith Autos owner op­er­a­tors Andy and Se­lena Smith are among those plan­ning to be there.

‘‘You get all sorts of peo­ple and projects that they are work­ing on, and catch up with friends in­volved with the car scene,’’ Andy said.

The cou­ple plan to show their fully self-re­stored Chevro­lets, a ‘67 El Camino and ‘69 Chev­elle.

The show opens at 10am.
