Chevys and Mustangs were on display at The Bundaberg Chapter of the American Car Club of Brisbane car show to celebrate the Fourth of July.
Stylish right-hand drive Cadillacs, Chevrolets and Galaxys painted in their original colours, and some looking as new as the day they left the factory, lined the car park of RJ’s Rock and Roll Diner for locals to check out.
Organisers Shane Symons and Peter Roberts said the local chapter started at the end of last year and had become quite popular.
“We are just testing the waters with the car show at the moment, and this morning has turned out really well,” Shane said.
“We thought with the relaxation of the restrictions, that we would have the car show, and because we have our meetings here at RJ’s Diners it would also help him get more bums on seats.
“We have 21 members signed up so far and between 35 to 40 American cars between us all.”
Shane said there were quite a few American cars in the Bundaberg Region, and anyone with an American model car built earlier than 2000 was welcome to join the friendly social car club.
Bundaberg Chapter of American Car Club welcome addition
Ken “Spud” Murphy said he was pleased the Bundaberg Chapter of the American Car group had started in the Bundaberg Region, as he had owned his 1959 Coupe Deville Cadillac since 2007, and it was nice to now show her off to the public and also meet with others who had a passion for the sophisticated cars.
“It took me several years to restore her, every nut and bolt,” he said.
“I found the sign for the club in RJ’s windows, and so it all worked out.”
