WAROONA will play host to shining chrome and classic lines for the fourth annual All Australian Car Day on April 9 at the showgrounds.

Organised by WA Just Cruizin’ Street Machines, car clubs from throughout the State will be putting their prized vehicles on display.

WA Off Road Racing Association will exhibit at the show for the first time, displaying their modified four-wheel-drives and custom buggies.

Organisers are also expecting to see cars from the FPV Tickford Owners Club, the 49/59 Ford V8 Owners Club, the WA Classic Speedway Club, and JP Junior Rods.

Event coordinator and club secretary Naomi Purcell said the event was anticipating even more clubs than last year which saw about 350 private and club displays.

Ms Purcell said the variety of cars and their range of styles and colours was a big draw card.

“The variety really, the types and colours on the oval,” she said.

Delectable foods and wines will be found once again in the Gourmet Hall.

Lake Clifton Winery, Drakesbrook Fine Wines and Fifth Estate Wines will offer a range of wines alongside stalls selling crafts from jewellery to woodworking.

While the adults are admiring the cars, there will be plenty of entertainment for the kids with pony and camel rides, Lions Club train, a bouncy castle and face-painting.

“There’s definitely plenty to see and do,” Ms Purcell said.

Gates open at 10am until 4pm, with entry fees set at the traditional gold coin donation.

Money raised from the event is given to local community groups.
