Father’s Day Car Show returns

Loud exhausts, hot cars and the smell of petrol is often how many dads would like to spend their Sunday.

This weekend, 3 September the annual Father’s Day Car Show returns to Old Gippstown at Moe following its inaugural event last year.

Old Gippstown manager Kevin Reardon said the show would feature a range of classic and custom cars from 10am when the gates open to the public.

“We had cars starting from a T Model Ford through to the classic American cars of the 50s and 60s last year,” Mr Reardon said.

“It’s really open to anything that’s custom or classic or anything that might be a bit unusual.”

Moe’s Custom and Classic Car Club will run the show with prizes awarded throughout the afternoon recognising the unique and rare cars on display.

“We’ll have several categories including people’s choice, car of the show, best classic, best modified, best paint and panel and the toughest,” club president Bruce Stell said.

Vehicles are welcome to enter the grounds from 6am with the public gate open from 10am.

Food stalls selling hot and cold drinks will be available during the event with a licensed bar open on site.

Cost for adults is $5, children a gold coin donation and car entry is $10.
