Fraser Coast Wings and Wheels to draw visitors
FLYING in from around the country will be visitors who will join with what was being hailed as Maryborough's biggest vehicle show.
Maryborough Ford Car Club president Greg Walters said they were excited to work with other clubs to create a great event for the city.
He said it just happened when they approached the aero club for their space that they were looking to do a show too.
"The club has held many shows over the years and we believe our united is very positive for Maryborough."
The car show was open to all makes and models including vintage, classic, hotrod and show cars.
"We have also gone into partnership with the Independent Riders Fraser Coast who will show off a number of their bikes.
"We will have trucks and tractors on display - anything on wheels or machinery is welcome to display.
"We have had a number of clubs express their interest in the show including the GT Club in Bundaberg and the Classic Car Club.
"We only decided to join forces two months ago and we really want to put on a good show for the public."
Fraser Coast Wings and Wheels co-ordinator Karin Middleton said the family fun day will include aircraft, car and motorcycle displays.
She said the biggest drawcard was the warbird adventure flights.
"We have had the Warbirds of Aerotec Qld in Toowoomba come up and do adventure flights about five times over the last 10 years.
"During their visits we would involve the car clubs but this is the first time we have co-ordinated an event with the Ford Car Club."
The day will feature market stalls, food and refreshments, historical displays, stationary engines, kids entertainment.
The Flying Doctors and Angel Flight will be on hand and Rotary will help with catering. The Maryborough Aviation committee will have a display in the hanger.
"Anything with wings and wheels - we will have it out there," Karin said.
Cost to Fraser Coast Wings and Wheels will be by donation with all funds supporting Angel Flight.
Car Show entry was $5 and the public with judge the vehicles with winners receiving trophies.
There will be a perpetual trophy for the best club display.
