    Ballina Rugby League Grounds
    Kingsford Smith Drive
    Ballina

    Vintage and verteran car enthusiasts will gather at Ballina for the annual North Coast Street Machine's Show and Shine event.

    More than 200 vehicles - from muscle cars to classic Holdens and Cadillacs to Hot Rods and Motor Bikes are expected to be on display.

    Yet, there's lots more to it than beautiful cars: The event is also a charity fundraiser and includes trade displays and entertainment, rock 'n' roll dancing and competitions for the kids.

    Thanks Judy I will mark it down on the calender, but give it a bit more thought. With the time difference it would be a real early start for us.We would have to leave home before 5am to be there by 7am NSW time.

    Just a reminder...
    If you want to put you car on display...we are planning to meet EARLY outside this venue so all VW's that do enter can be with each other & not scattered all over the grounds...
    Will post up a meeting time closer to the date.
    PLEASE NOTE: to consider the time difference for people coming from Qld (NSW is 1hour ahead)

    Car Buffs Strut their Stuff

    [​IMG]Gearing up for the North Coast Street Machine Show-n-Shine this Sunday are North Coast Street Machine Inc members with just some of the stunning vehicles that will be on show.

    If you're into cars, then the annual North Coast Street Machine Show-n-Shine in Ballina this Sunday, January 12, is the place to be.
    The Show-n-Shine will feature hundreds of cars including street machines, vintage and veteran cars, hot rods, bikes, special interest vehicles and even some old racing cars.
    The event is now in its 14th year and North Coast Street Machine spokesperson, Kevin Woolard, said the group is hoping this Sunday's meeting at Ballina rugby league ground will be the biggest and best yet.
    "We're expecting more than 200 cars and over 4,000 people - if it's a fine day we should break the record for the biggest show yet," Kevin said. "There's just such a huge variety of vehicles - some that have been restored to showroom condition, others that have been modified with new bits and pieces so they're almost completely different and everything else in between. It's a fun, inexpensive day out for the family and a chance to see just how much money we waste on cars!"
    As well as looking at the magnificent machines on display there are plenty of activities for the whole family to enjoy, including demonstrations by The Summerland Rockers, drag-the-car races, a variety of automotive trade displays and amusements for the kids, like a jumping castle and merry-go-round.
    Entrants can arrive from 6.30am, but no later than 8.30am (there are more than 80 prizes up for grabs). The Show-n-Shine is then open to the public from 9am to 4pm, and entry is just $4 (no extra charge for show entrants). Some of the proceeds will go to the Our Kids Northern Rivers Children's Health Fund.

    As Kel & Celia will be "in the neighbourhood" that day,
    a BBQ (for KC Members ) will be at my place AFTER the show...
    So to all that are going to the Car Show, BYO meat, drinks, etc & drop on over...:)
    A nice way to end a great day :)
