Holden fans revved for national car show
JOHN Manwaring travelled 4200 kilometres across the country to attend this weekend's FE-FC Holden Nationals in Toowoomba.
The event is staged in a different location every two years and is an opportunity for holden enthusiasts to get together and show off their prized possessions.
There will 97 cars from all over the country on show at the nationals.
Mr Manwaring recently arrived from Perth and said the nationals was a great opportunity to meet up with like minded people.
"I love the cars and I like the comradery of the show," he said.
"It's great meeting up with friends from all over Australia and making new friends."
Events will be held from Friday to Sunday with the main event, the Nationals Show and Shine, at Queens Park on Saturday at 9am.
Here the cars will be on display and the public is welcome to attend.
FE-FC Holden Car Club of Queensland president Ron Cook said Toowoomba was the perfect location for the event.
"We looked at different areas around Queensland and we found we got a good reception here," he said.
"The atmosphere at the nationals is always electric and the town has everything we need to run a successful show."
