"THE loudest it goes is about 142 decibels,” Matt Alchin said.

"A plane taking off is about 140.”

You never know what you might find at a local car show and the Show n Shine event at this year's Crush at the Creek was full of surprises.

Matt was showing off his Alpine sound system, installed in both the boot and back seat of his Hyundai Excel.

Dave Zunker was showing off his rare 1971 Valiant Charger which he says "kept him going” through a battle with cancer. "As soon I was well enough to leave hospital, I flew to Melbourne to pick it up,” he said.

Restoring it "made me strong in the mind...my dream car helped save my life”.

Cassandra Hill has made her vintage Ford Falcon her own - complete with "hers not his” on the rear window.

Jennifer Zoet is familiar with the feeling.

She owns a bold yellow Holden SS Thunder Commodore ute which she recently fitted with matching rims.

"I left the Betty Boop plates on - that way you know it's a woman's car,” she said. Cassandra and Jennifer are both part of a group of women in the region who own V8s.
