The South Burnett Car Club’s annual Show & Shine Swap Meet attracted an array of classic street machines – and a few motorbikes – at the Nanango Rugby League ground on Sunday morning.
There was everything from an exotic BRP Can-Am three-wheel roadster to a GT Falcon replica for visitors to drool over.
Amongst the show entrants was Geoff Collett, of Benarkin, who has spent about $50,000 (until he stopped counting) over the past 10 years restoring his 1971 Pontiac Trans-Am.
Peter Marshall, from Kingaroy, brought his 1965 XP Ford straight from a night of racing at Willowbank Raceway. The Falcon, which has a modified 302 fitted, recorded a 14.32 – its best-ever pass – to be runner-up in the Hot Street time bracket. Peter’s spent about 10 years building the car.
Entries also came from other local clubs, including the Gas Guzzlers.
Tammy and Gerard Greenslade’s 1956 Chevrolet Bel Air four-door hardtop was fully restored in 2008 and is now running a 350 motor with a Turbo 400 transmission.
