Nothing like a good country swap meet to bring out a wide variety of fantastic rides, throw in some great weather and a rockin’ band and you’ve got yourself a great day out! This is exactly how the Bacchus Marsh show n shine and swap meet played out today with another enormous turnout of cool cars and bikes. Bacchus Marsh is perfectly placed when it comes to convenient locations for such a gathering. With easy access from the major cities such as Melbourne, Geelong and Ballarat and a stones throw away from much smaller community, it’s no wonder it has such a big following. As a club run event, the Marsh Rodders do themselves proud every year by keeping it informal yet organised.
With more Harleys than you’d dare to poke a stick at and every conceivable set of wheels from classic vintage Fords, Buicks and Dodges through to the latest Camaros, Mustangs and Pontiacs, a wide variety of locally built iron and many classic American imports on show, the car enthusiasts were well catered for and not to be outdone, the swap meet sites were plentiful with many bargains on offer for those who knew where to look.
The hungry punters were well catered for too with a variety of food stalls on offer while the shady grounds provided cool shelter from the warming sun. A large playground kept the little troops entertained throughout the day giving Mum and Dad time to take in the surrounding exposé.
Keep an eye out for this one next year and keep on cruzin’!
