One of the most highly-anticipated All American car displays on the show calendar will soon return to the Gembrook Recreation Reserve.
Now in its 26th year, the ‘All American Car Display & Man Cave Alley’ has long been regarded as a real ‘can’t miss’ local event.
This year, there will be room to display up to 900 hot rods; custom cars; and classic, vintage, and veteran cars and trucks.
This year, as a sign of the booming popularity of modern American vehicles, the event will also welcome show condition, late-model American vehicles for display.
The ‘All American Car Display & Man Cave Alley’ is a major annual fundraiser for the Rotary Club of Emerald and District and is held in conjunction with the Thunderbirds Rod & Custom Club. All money raised through the event will be directed to a range of local and international Rotary projects.
Those heading to the event on motorbike through the hills will have a dedicated parking area once they arrive.
This year, the event will be held on Sunday, 17 February. The ‘Man Cave Alley’ theme will also include a range of market stalls selling and displaying a variety of items for a bloke’s beloved ‘man cave’.
There will be additional facilities for spectators for what promises to be another bumper day.
