An all-American car display nested in the picturesque Dandenong Ranges is hoping to attract strong numbers from the broader hills community next weekend.
Hailed as the ultimate boys’ day out, the 24th annual All American Card Display and Man Cave Alley will for the first time include the addition of market stalls offering a range of goods targeting to the Aussie bloke.
The event is a major fundraiser for the Rotary Club of Emerald and District, run by the club in conjunction with the Thunderbirds Rod and Custom Car Club, with all proceeds going back into the community through projects and sponsorships.
Rotary Club of Emerald and District’s Russ Nielsen, a key organiser of the event, said there would be about 500 American cars and trucks, hot rods and customs, classic and vintage cars on display.
“Additionally we will have the G-Force V8 race car simulator that people can drive, along with drone and radio control model car demonstrations,” Mr Nielsen said.
Food stalls and children’s attractions will also be on offer, ensuring there is “plenty for everyone to see and do” while a period dress-up competition, matching owners to their cars, is sure to entertain.
The All American Card Display and Man Cave Alley will be held at the Gembrook Sports Ground on Belgrave-Gembrook Road on 19 February from 8am.
