Clarence Car Show a boot full of fun

EASTER Monday was more than just a public holiday at South Street Reserve as the Lions Club of Clarence delighted locals with its second Clarence Car Show.

A treasure trove for vehicle enthusiasts, the show featured more than 130 types of cars, as well as a McDermott Aviation helicopter to entertain the children.

“The helicopter was used extensively during the recent bushfires on the north-west coast and it was a delight for the children,” Lions Club of Clarence president David McDavitt said.

“Last year I said the show would be bigger and better than ever and I was correct, with nearly double the number of patrons and cars making an appearance at this year’s event.

“There were lots of Aussie and American muscle cars, a couple of hot rods, a Targa car and even a rare Austin Healy bugged sprite.

“The car owners commented that they had a great time and enjoyed seeing such a wide variety of cars.”

Mr McDavitt said the club had already locked in Monday 13 March for its 2017 Clarence Car Show.

“We have learnt a lot about how to do a car show and next year will be even bigger and better,” he said.

Funds raised at the event will go towards the Lion’s Club of Clarence’s bushfire relief projects.
