Rods shine over the Gap

WARWICK driver Mick Freeman was one of 37 entrants in the Show ‘n’ Shine in Leslie Park as part of the Southern Downs Rodders weekend, Rods Over the Gap.

Mr Freeman has had his 75 Corvette Stingray, which is fully imported from America, for just eight months, and he made sure it was in immaculate condition for the Show ‘n’ Shine.

“I have always had a V8,” he said.

“I drive for leisure and fun; I couldn’t afford to prang it in a race.”

Jake Harmond was one of many children at the Show ‘n’ Shine and said he really liked the hot rods.

“My favourite is a red one,” he said.

Club president Ross Cameron said the number of entrants at the weekend was restricted by available accommodation.

“We had an excellent response from the public at Leslie Park,” Mr Cameron said.

Show ‘n’ Shine winners: ladies’ choice – Mel Schilling, 32 Ford Coupe; entrant’s choice – Norm Snape, 32 Ford Coupe; post ‘48 – Harry Young, 71 Chev Camiro; people’s choice – Ross Cameron, 46 Ford Convertible; major sponsor’s (Warwick Credit Union) choice – Ian Turner, 57 Chev Wagon; top hot rod – Errol Reeves, 32 Ford Coupe.
