This must be the year for new car shows as our calendars are over filled with options of inaugural or established shows to attend. The Ballarat Turf club in conjunction with the Ballarat and District Early Holden Car club have put on this event with a difference; combining horses with horse power! With plenty of space available for people’s rides, a large turnout almost filled the grassed area and proceeded to enjoy the facilities and activities available to the punters. The children were well catered for with show rides, face painting, Wii games played on a digital screen the size of a truck (no exaggeration!) and children’s songs sung by the Mik Maks. There was also plenty of food stalls on offer for the hungry crowd while trade stands helped us decide what we should do to our rides next.
The GM brand was well covered from a range of 1920s era Oaklands through to the latest Camaro laid out across the grounds with the majority of vehicles being our own Aussie built classics. The quality of the cars on show was high seeing some freshly built cruisers come out to enjoy the Spring weather while the regulars kept up their standards to add a few more k’s under their belts.
As with all things, the success of a show will guarantee it to return year after year and become one of the established shows on our calendar so if you support the Detroit based product, check this one out for next year and even try your luck on the GGs, you might go home richer than you turned up!
Keep on cruisin’!
