Car show to be a classic
WHAT started as an event to help generate business while the Airlie Beach Main Street was being refurbished has taken on a life of its own.
From V8s to classic cars, the annual Whitsunday Lions Classic Car Show will have it all this Sunday.
More than 60 cars are expected to be on display at the Airlie Beach Foreshore, with automobiles coming from as far afield as Townsville to join in on the day. Whitsunday Lions Club president Allan Gravelle said that while the event wasn't a fundraiser for the club, it had been so successful and attracted so many people to Airlie Beach that it became a permanent fixture.
Although last year's show failed to get off the ground, event organiser and Whitsunday Lion Paul Perrin said he was looking forward to Sunday's event return.
"There's not too many car shows that have the position this one has, right on the foreshore there," he said. "We'll have everything from a Model T Ford to current model stuff."
A number of old-fashioned stationary engines will also be on display.
