Hotrods rum­ble into Halls Gap

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - News -

While some might re­gard the num­ber 13 as un­lucky, Hor­sham’s Old Skool Hotrod and Cus­tom Club has promised its 13th an­nual hotrod run in Halls Gap will bring good luck to peo­ple who at­tend.

Halls Gap will wel­come more than 120 hotrods and cus­tom cars, along with hun­dreds of hotrod en­thu­si­asts, who will make their an­nual pil­grim­age to the tourist town this week­end.

The Old Skool Hotrod and Cus­tom Club or­gan­ises the Halls Gap rod run, which will once again fea­ture a wide va­ri­ety of ‘hot­ted up’ and mod­i­fied pre-1966 ve­hi­cles.

The run kicks off on Fri­day night and con­tin­ues through Satur­day and Sun­day.

The event will fo­cus on en­trants and spec­ta­tors cel­e­brat­ing cars and a lifestyle from a by­gone era.

Vis­i­tors to Halls Gap will see a va­ri­ety of hotrod and cus­tom ve­hi­cles orig­i­nally built from 1920 to 1965 and mod­i­fied to meet modern safety and per­for­mance stan­dards.

En­trants will start ar­riv­ing from across Vic­to­ria and in­ter­state on Fri­day, where they will en­joy ‘diner-style’ burg­ers while catch­ing up with fel­low hotrod­ders and friends.

Satur­day ac­tiv­i­ties will start with hotrod cruises to Stawell and lo­ca­tions nearby, fol­lowed by a visit to the Halls Gap Ho­tel for a sit-down lunch, which will also in­clude an im­promptu car show.

Af­ter­noon ac­tiv­i­ties will con­sist of cruis­ing, shop­ping and vis­it­ing at­trac­tions in and around Halls Gap and evening en­ter­tain­ment for en­trants.

Af­ter break­fast on Sun­day, car own­ers and driv­ers will as­sem­ble their ve­hi­cles at the north­ern end of Halls Gap Car­a­van Park for a show and shine dis­play from 10am to 1.30pm.

Spec­ta­tor en­try will be via gold coin.

Club pres­i­dent Alan Harmer urged peo­ple to make the most of the oc­ca­sion.

“Why not take the fam­ily to visit Halls Gap, check out the sights and get up close to the hotrods and cus­tom lifestyle?” he said.
