Get your motor running

SELF-confessed "petrol heads" and car enthusiasts will converge this Sunday, August 5, for the Summerland Sports and Classic Car Club 29th Annual Static Car & Motorcycle Show.

Vintage, veteran, classic, sports and unique cars and motorbikes will be on display from 9.30am at Clyde Campbell car park, between Molesworth and Keen Sts (near the old Lismore Police Station).

Organiser George Jensen explained a gold coin donation at the entrance would go to Our House, a project that aims to build accommodation for cancer patients in Lismore.

Barry Granatelli, who is also organising the event, added that anyone who was proud of their car or motorbike and would like to exhibit it could just show up at 8am on the day.

There will be more than 40 awards given away on the day.

Some of the most popular awards are "Most desirable vehicle" in a selection of classes, "recognised excellence" for those cars or bikes with excellent preparation and presentation.

Mr Jensen said more than 200 cars would be on display this weekend, with some of them from the early 1900s.
