All roads lead to Tarrawingee

Over 220 vehicles were on display at last week’s hugely successful Show Us Your Car Night at Tarrawingee.

Organised by the North Eastern Car Club, the event was held in perfect weather conditions on a Wednesday evening.

There were 190 cars of all ages and models on show, ranging from custom hot rods, Minis and muscle cars, right through to late model Porsches, BMWs and electric-powered Teslas.

The display also attracted 30 motorcycles, and even a selection of vintage fire trucks and tractors.

Hundreds of locals took advantage of the mid-week date to view the vehicles at the North Eastern Car Club’s grounds at Tarrawingee.

“This was easily our most successful Show Us Your Car Night and was a fantastic return to normality after three years of pandemic interruptions,” club president Peter Whitten said.

“The club put in a power of work to get this year’s event up and running, and to see such a wonderful array of vehicles on display is just reward for that effort.”

The annual event was last run in 2020, and will return again in February 2024.
