The newly formed Taree Antique and Classic Car Club will hold its first display of classic and vintage motor vehicles at the Taree racecourse on Krambach Cup day.
Manning Valley Race Club is thrilled to host the event alongside the race day on Friday, October 16.
Race club chief executive Helen Sinclair said the display will be an extra attraction for patrons.
"We are pleased to have the Taree Antique and Classic Car Club present a range of their beautiful motor vehicles as an added attraction for patrons over the course of the afternoon carnival," Helen said.
The must-see vehicle will be a 1929 Stutz Black Hawk, which was restored by car club president Trevor Hudson.
"As a newly formed club we are looking forward to our first public display," Trevor said.
"Our magnificent vehicles range from the 1920s like the Stutz and LaSalle, even going 'back to the future' with a Delorean together with a fine array of British, European, Japanese and Australian classics.
"We encourage race goers to mingle with our members (COVID safely) and their vehicles on what will be a memorable day."
Vehicles will enter the display area from 1pm.
The Manning region has developed an enviable reputation for automotive excellence in custom vehicles.
The region is well served by a range of car clubs which cater to the specialist needs of motoring enthusiasts. The new club is no exception.
"We are a small but well established group of long time enthusiasts that are keen to encourage and support each other in the restoration and enjoyment of classic motor vehicles," Trevor said.
Many vehicles within the impressive collection come with their own interesting stories, such as a very rare and restored 1936 La Salle Series 50 Sports Coup which was apparently won in a poker game.
The restoration of a rare 1960 Austin Metropolitan is an example of a club member's commitment to complete a two year 'nut and bolt' job in his garage.
