This year saw one of the wettest starts in the Colac custom car and bike show’s 17 year history thanks to a low situated right over Colac itself! No one ordered it but it came anyway! All it achieved for the car show was a late start seeing automotive enthusiasts hold off their early morning cruise down the Princes highway for an hour or so. By 11am, the park was filling nicely.
I was shoot for a vendor this weekend so my time spent wandering amongst the cool cars and bad-ass bikes was limited but I whipped around and grabbed a few pics of what caught my eye. I’m sure I missed a few treasures buried among the leafy park-lands of the Colac Memorial square.
The vendor I was shooting for was a rockabilly clothing company appropriately called Rockabilly Adventures and owners Ryan and Bec had arranged an impromptu photo-shoot with a bevy of beauties and a cool collection of old school rides and bikes. With a backdrop of green leafy shrubs and a rotunda surrounded by classic cars, these girls posed with aplomb in the rockabilly vintage fashion, their classic soft curves contrasting nicely with the gleaming hard lines of the various rods and vintage bikes they had acquired for the day from friends and family! My job was the easiest and most fun too I gotta say!
As I’ve said in the past, this event is one to take in over a weekend and enjoy the country hospitality of Colac and its surrounding district so mark it down for next year and, if you’re into the ever growing rockabilly scene, check out Ryan and Bec’s store for all your vintage fashion requirements!
Keep on cruisin,
