The stage is set for one of the largest car and motorcycle displays in the North East, to be held at Tarrawingee, 11km from Wangaratta this Wednesday, February 6.
Organised by the North Eastern Car Club, the “Show Us Your Car Night” is an annual event that gives owners of a wide range of special interest cars and motorcycles the chance to display their vehicles to the public.
The event is arguably Wangaratta and district’s biggest car display, with organisers hoping that the number of cars and motorcycles on show this year will once again be well over 120.
This is the eighth year that the event has been held, and it has again attracted a huge cross-section of unique and interesting vehicles including muscle cars, street machines, race and rally cars, classic and vintage cars, daily drivers and more.
The club has also extended an invitation for members of the public to bring their special interest vehicles for inclusion in the display.
The gates at the club’s display area in Nolan’s Lane, Tarrawingee open at 6pm this Wednesday.
Entry fee for car and motorcycle owners is $5 per vehicle, with spectators to be admitted free.
Food and cold drinks will be available during the night, with the display to conclude around 9pm.

Nearly 140 classics cars and motorcycles took centre stage at the North Eastern Car Club's annual Show Us Your Car Night on Wednesday.

This was the sixth year that the car show has been held, and North Eastern Car Club spokesman, Jeff Whitten, said it was once again a huge success.
"Our vehicle numbers were up slightly from last year, which is very pleasing for the club," he said.
"The hot weather no doubt kept a number of vehicles and spectators away, but overall the night was very well received."
