Vehicle lovers to have a blast at Show and Shine

HAD a ball at this year's Historic Vehicle and Machinery Group's Rock Up day?

Why not join them again when they celebrate Show and Shine, a display of historic vehicles and engines on Sunday, August 6?

Show and Shine is part of the Historic Vehicle and Machinery Group's Winter Run that runs from August 4 to 6.

Organiser Garry Ellis said Show and Shine would be an interesting day with cars, tractors and engines for everyone to admire at the Stanthorpe Showgrounds.

The free event will start at 8am and run to about 2pm.

"Local car people can bring their car and put it on display on Sunday or their tractor or their engine,” he said.

Show and Shine will be similar to the Historic Vehicle and Machinery Group's Rock Up day. Pictured are Neil Miller, Jim Baxter, Neville Madsen (tractor owner), Lester Kruger and Alf Torrisi at this year's Rock Up day in May.

Mr Ellis said the event was designed for outside cars to come into the district but locals were welcome to rock up with their beloved vehicles as well.

"At this stage we have got a mix of anything and everything,” he said.

"The Renault Club from Brisbane has shown strong interest so we have got a fair smattering of Renaults coming and all sorts of other things.”

The Ringmaster's Cafe will be serving food and drinks on the day.

The Winter Run organiser said cars would start turning up on Friday, August 4.

There will be a meet and greet dinner on Friday night for $20pp.

On Saturday, there will be a big bush breakfast at the Stanthorpe Heritage Museum for $20pp.

"(On Saturday,) we start with a big bush breakfast up at the museum and then go for a drive around the district, end up in Wallangarra and have lunch at Wallangarra at the Railway Station,” he said.

"And then they have got free time in the afternoon after that and then we all meet again out at Jamworks in Glen Aplin for the Saturday night dinner.”

There will be a $25 vehicle entry fee to join them on Saturday.

If you would like to participate in any of the events on Friday and Saturday, please contact Garry on 0418832175.

Mr Ellis encouraged visitors and locals to come along on Sunday to Show and Shine for an interesting day to forget about the cold temperatures for a while while admiring the historic vehicles and engines.
