Freshly polished chrome glistened in the sun at yesterday’s annual Shepparton Rotary Club Motor Show, Market Day and Swap Meet.
Celebrating its eighth year, the event covered the Shepparton Showgrounds, with attractions for the whole family.
Motoring enthusiasts were treated to vintage cars, new vehicles, ATVs, truck displays and everything in between.
This was also the first year the event included a swap meet component.
A wide range of market stalls greeted guests with a petting zoo ready to entertain children.
Tracey Ballard of Euroa had been showing her and her husband’s Holden Kingswood for the past four years.
‘‘It’s a really nice family day out with the ‘Sunday only’ car,’’ Mrs Ballard said.
‘‘People are coming up asking heaps of questions, wondering what we’ve done to the car.’’
Greg Graham of Cobram showed off his speed car, which his father built in 1980.
‘‘It’s a good day to show it off,’’ Mr Graham said.
Shepparton Rotary Club member Alan Lindsay said the good weather brought a bigger crowd than previous years.
‘‘This year has been fantastic and the event is really growing in popularity,’’ Mr Lindsay said.
Awards were given out on the day in a range of categories.
John Casey’s Holden Kingswood police car won the Central Tyres Most Unique Vehicle, Clint Irwin’s 1969 Mazda R100 took out the Tip ‘n’ Go Trailers Encouragement Award, the Frank Latorre 1965 Foden won the Ted Lea People’s Choice Award (Truck) and the Tri-Tech Lubricant People Choice Award (Car) went to Nathan De Lai’s 1972 Leyland Clubman GT.
