Car enthusiasts will have the chance to pick up an automotive bargain as Rum City Rods and Customs Auto Swap Meet returns to the region.
Rum City Rods and Customs secretary Neil Irvine is looking forward to hosting the annual event, which was on hiatus for the past few years due to COVID-19 regulations.
The automotive swap meet will have a gathering of like-minded people who are looking to buy or sell car and motorbike parts, collectables, memorabilia and antiques.
“We are really excited to make a return of the popular annual event,” Neil said.
“It’s not a car show, but an event with vendor stalls selling everything automotive including spare parts, and some of their cars will be on display.
“If people are looking for particular automotive items, there’s a good chance they will find it here.”
Neil said Rum City Rods and Customs Auto Swap Meet was a chance for community members who were interested in cars to check out the clubhouse, which was located on site.
“We have a fantastic clubhouse, so this is a chance for people to come and see some of the memorabilia in the hall,” he said.
“Our members are keen to take people through the clubhouse for a tour on the day.”
Neil said any community member with car parts, or the like, could register to have a stall at the Rum City Rods and Customs Auto Swap Meet.
“This is automotive only, no bric-a-brac, and we have quite a few stalls of locals booked already,” he said.
“This is a traditional swap meet for car enthusiasts, by car enthusiasts.
“It’s always well attended, and we hope to see the community there.”
Rum City Rods and Customs Auto Swap Meet will be held on Saturday, 19 March at 8E Quay Street, opposite Kendall Flat, and open to vendors from 5.30 am with the gates opening to the public at 6.30 am.
Enquiries for stallholders can be directed to Neil on 0408 796 979.
