Well, once again the guys and girls of the Colac custom car and bike show organisation have turned on a fantastic weekend starting with Friday night’s drive-in movie, The Blues Brothers , Saturday’s show n shine seeing around 500 cars and bikes attend and Sunday’s cruise to Inverleigh!
Memorial Square located centrally in Colac lends itself perfectly as a family friendly setting for such a show with participants coming from as far as Melbourne and far west Victoria. The variety of vehicles and bikes on show is astounding from classic vintage, custom, street/strip, late model and just plain wild! There was even a top fuel rail on show with fire up demonstrations drowning out the live band temporarily while drawing a large crowd!
Trade stands filled the outer edge of the square while food and beverages could be found courtesy of the local Lions club tent and other assorted venues. Sit down meals were easily located just outside the show at a number of pubs and eateries.
Sunday saw a more relaxed atmosphere with breakfast at the local RSL and then a leisurely cruise to the quiet country pub located in Inverleigh allowing Geelong/ Melbourne participants the chance of meeting some of the sociable Colac crew while heading in the right direction for home.
This is just a short selection of what was on show and was going on in the scenic country town of Colac over the weekend. Watch this space for more pics, a DVD slideshow and write-up on this spectacular event!
