The event was huge with hundreds of cars registered. There was trade stands, sausage sizzles, and fun for the kids plus plenty of music including legendary Australian artists Darryl Cotton and Wendy Stapleton performing. Jump n Jive is another of the huge musical acts performed some of music’s greatest hits all in character.

As well as the huge static display and show ā€˜nā€™ shine, one of the highlights of the event was the cruise around the show grounds which was a colourful and memorable. There also was a mini rod cruse where miniature hot rods cruised around their own special track for the kiddys.

There certainly was a few throbbing noises coming from the showgrounds during the dyno challenge, when the horsepower of these shiny metal monsters were put to the test.

As Sunday was Easter Sunday there was be a special Christian Rodders Chapel Service held at 11 am to celebrate one of the holiest days on the Christian calendar.
