Horsepower in the High Country 28/1/23

Last Saturday I cruised over to Mansfield for Horsepower in the High Country. A fantastic event run by the Delatite and District Car Club. 

It was a hot day but that didn’t deter the hundreds of visitors to Mansfield from displaying their vehicles for all to enjoy. 

Kids rides, stalls and a live band contributed to the carnival atmosphere. 

A novel feature which referenced the “horsepower” aspect was when at 1pm, owners were invited to start their engines and create some noise. Something different and spectacular to hear in person. 

Congratulations to Cameron and all the organizers from DDCC who put many hours into this event to make it run as smoothly as it did. 

See you again next time!!

Swanpool Winners!

CarTorque recently attended the Swanpool Targa Car Show and the winners were selected using their new QR voting system. 

Entered vehicles are simply given a card with a unique QR code to display on their vehicle and the public walking around the show use their smartphone to scan the code to register a vote for that car. 

The awards at Swanpool went to joint winning Jaguar and Detomaso Pantera and runner up Plymouth. 

A random $100 prize is also awarded to someone who voted. 

Hope to see this system rolled out at many more shows in the future.

Swanpool Shannon’s High Country Targa Car Show 15/1/23

The Targa High Country Car Show was held on the oval in Swanpool by the Swanpool Motor Festival and Shannon’s. 

It attracted a modest crowd of interesting vehicles but nothing like the huge numbers the Swanpool Motor Festival attracts which is coming up on March 12th, 2023. 

Some lovely cars in attendance. A group of Porsches made a day of it, arriving in convoy on a warm and fine day. 

It was also another opportunity for CarTorque to implement their QR voting system to tally the votes and announce the winners at the end of the show. I think that deserves a separate post to highlight the winners vehicles. 

Thanks to Ross Coles for again organizing a great event.

Yea Cruise Night 14/1/23

The weather forecast for the January Yea Cruise Night was fine and hot. And it was! 

So hot in fact that it kept many regulars away. But fortunately, there’s always newcomers to fill in the gaps. 

As per usual, an outstanding array of cars in town and it’s fair to say the local ice cream shop was run off their feet!! 

Let’s hope the February YCN is a tad cooler!!

Whittlesea Cruise Night 6/1/23

I finally found the time to get to Whittlesea Cruise Night last Friday evening. 

Perfect weather. A great turnout and a well organized event made for a very fun evening. 

Hats off to Terry and Elaine for creating and growing such a fantastic night for the Whittlesea township and the broader car community. 

I’ll definitely be back again!!

Wandin Rotary Custom Cars and Bike Show 21/12/22

Last Wednesday I attended the long awaited return of the Wandin Rotary Car Show. 

Covid restrictions meant there was no shows since 2020 and just when they were ready to return, poor weather and flooding affected the venue to the point where it was unusable. 

But the December 2022 return was nothing short of spectacular. 

Thousands of people and hundreds of cars attending the night. 

Welcome Back!!

Broadford Cars and Coffee 18/12/22

Broadford Cars and Coffee 18/12/22

The final BCC for 2022 was a big one. Absolutely perfect weather brought people and amazing vehicles from far and wide. A large group from Shepparton arrived early and before long there were classics all over the place. 

Congratulations to Ashley and Erin who organize BCC on an event that’s entertained many but remains simple and casual in its format. 

Looking forward to more in 2023!

Yea Cruise Night 10/12/22

The second half of my day last Saturday after attending the Delatite Drivers Car Club Show ‘n’ Shine in Mansfield was to go home to Yea for the Yea Cruise Night. 

The last one for 2022 was very well attended which was no doubt helped by the fantastic weather. 

As usual, a huge variety of cars filled the Main Street of Yea and everyone seemed to be having a great time. 

Three more to go for the “season” in January, February and March. Second Saturday of the month.

Delatite Drivers Car Club Show ‘n’ Shine, Mansfield 10/12/22

The weather gods were smiling on our region on Saturday December 10th. I was pleased by this because I was keen to get to both the Delatite Drivers Car Club Show ’n’ Shine in the morning, and then spending the night at home in Yea at the Yea Cruise Night. 

The weather was absolutely perfect. 

We cruised over to Mansfield in the Plymouth and parked on the grass in the beautiful Main Street with many fantastic vehicles. 

Actually, a lot of them traveled back to Yea at the conclusion of the Mansfield Show ’n’ Shine to attend the Cruise Night too. This collaboration is something that we might explore a bit more in the future. 

All in all a well run event with a superb mix of interesting vehicles on display.

Lilydale Street Fair 3/12/22

Today I joined the crew from Mount Evelyn Coffee’N’Cars who were asked to take part in the Lilydale Street Fair. 

An eclectic mix of cars joined the parade and then moved on to a small show n shine nearby where some other cool rides joined the fun. 

Perfect warm weather was a welcome change from the recent wet and cool weather so everyone seemed to be having a great time for the first time in quite a while  

Congratulations to the Street Fair organisers and Mount Evelyn Coffee’N’Cars for the opportunity to take part.

Yea Show 26/11/22

November 26th was Victorian State Election Day, but something far more important was happening in Yea, Victoria. The Yea Show! 

It’s been a few years since the show has been held due to Covid restrictions, but on Saturday all the old favorites returned (minus the horses and cattle due to the wet state of the oval after our recent rains) 

Sheepdog trials, livestock, rides, sideshow games, art and crafts, line dancing, wood chop. A traditional country show which also had a small classic car display which I took part in with the Plymouth. 

Perfect weather and a great time was had by all by the looks of the happy faces I saw all day. 

Looking forward to it again next year.

Broadford Cars & Coffee 20/11/22

Yesterday I made the quick trip over to Broadford Cars & Coffee amid some average weather but nevertheless, a great turnout of vehicles had a similar idea which made for a great morning. 

The stormy weather also meant I was working under some less than perfect conditions which prompted me to challenge myself to only shooting detail/close up pics. One, two or three pics of as many of the attendees as possible. No full car pics. Just abbreviated detail pics. 

Here’s a sample of the results.

Yea Cruise Night 12/11/22

Yea Cruise Night #6 November 12, 2022

Rain forecast for the afternoon and evening of the November Yea Cruise Night meant numbers were lower than previous events, but that didn’t stop a great variety of awesome vehicles turning up. 

The variety is wide as the Yea Cruise Night has no limitations to what you can bring. “Enthusiast vehicles” is the YCN motto, so that means almost anything interesting and cool will show up.

From a stock standard vintage car to a modern classic. You never know what you will see. 

This event saw the introduction of a slowed speed limit in High Street to 40km which will be imposed in future events also to make the environment safer for people wandering through the cars on display. 

Hopefully the December YCN brings some Warner weather and more visitors to Yea!!

Bright Rod Run 4-6 November, 2022

November 4-6, 2022 were the dates for the 30th running of the Bright Rod Run. 

And what an amazing event it was! 

A massive turnout of amazing cars and thousands of enthusiasts made the weekend a sight to behold. 

If you haven’t been to Bright for the Rod Run, make sure you try to at least once in your life. 

You won’t forget it!!

Tarwin District Auto Festival 30/10/22

Victorias wet October really made a mess of the Melbourne Cup long weekend recently. 

Plenty of events scheduled but flooded regions, road closures and unsuitable venues meant many were cancelled. 

Not the case down in Tarwin Lower for the Tarwin District Auto Festival organised by the Tarwin District Auto and Machinery Club. 

Surprisingly the venue held up well even though parking was entirely on the grass oval. 

A smaller than expected crowd of very unique vehicles in attendance. Trucks, motorcycles, cars, stationary engines, tractors. Plenty to see on a surprisingly rare fine day. 

Stalls and food vans also gave visitors a reason to stay longer to enjoy the atmosphere. 

I think I’ll try to get to this one again next year.
