Hot Rod Show and Shine in Toowoomba

10 Mar

Even though I am suffering from a bad case of the man flu, nothing could stop me from going down to Margaret Street in the CBD of Toowoomba to check out the show and shine competition of the High Altitude Hot Rod Run. There was certainly some well polished  machinery on display for the young and old car enthusiast. Although alot of the cars are much older than me and I don’t know what models they are, I can still see these beautiful cars and appreciate the amount of effort that has gone into restoring them to their natural beauty. Below are just a few of my favourites that were on display.

First Australian Car Show in over 2 years

6 Oct

Well I have been back in Toowoomba for just over 2 weeks and was starting to wonder how long it would be until I would see some amazing cars on home soil, as seeing the likes of Ferrari and Aston Martins in London was a common occurance. I opened The Chronicle news paper on the 26th of Septembeer and to my amusement I read that there was going to be a Holden car show at one of the local football ovals. Becuase it had been a while since I had seen some home grown cars I couldnt help but make sure I checked out these beauties. After reading the date wrong and going up the day before the show, I revisited the park on the correct day and managed to take a few photos of my favourite cars on show which you can see below. Even though they are not Astons or Ferrari, I felt the same excitment when seeing these bacause it made it feel much more real that I am home and we also have amazing cars, at half the price. Thanks to the Toowoomba Holden FJ and FX Car Club for putting on such a great event.
