Classic car could soon be yours

HAVING fun in the sun with friends - how could it get any better?

Driving away in your very own Shag Islet Cruising Yacht Club HQ Holden perhaps.

The 2016 SICYC Rendezvous is set to see some awesome prizes given away, with all proceeds going to prostate cancer research.

This year an iconic Holden comes courtesy of Llewellyn Motors general manager and SICYC vice commodore James Sturges.

Mr Sturges said he had offered to lend a hand in previous years.

"I said if you need anything like an air filter, let us know and we can sort you out," he said.

SICYC founder Ken Thackeray took him up on that offer this year.

"He then said I need the carburettor, the engine, the body; the whole box and die," Mr Sturges laughed.

Having been restored to a roadworthy condition the HQ is certainly a spectacular first place raffle prize.

"It's a great, iconic vehicle and it represents the Shag Islet Cruising Yacht Club fraternity," Mr Sturges said.

Wrapped in a parrot head and SICYC themed, this truly is a sight on the roads.

There's a whole swathe of spectacular prizes on offer as well, including an accommodation package for Shingley Beach Resort and a $5000 charter with Cumberland Charter Yachts.

So grab your tickets to be in the running to walk away in winning when the rendezvous kicks off next week.
