Classic chrome show-bound

BIGGENDEN'S 14th Auto Spectacular this Saturday promises to be a great display, with 70 early entries already received by committee secretary Lyn Holmes.

The meeting, at the Biggenden Showgrounds opening at 8am, has been revived after an absence of two years and will be a static "show and shine" display, with trade stalls and a swap meet.

Mrs Holmes said an Auto Barn sound-off would be an added attraction, with an entertaining display of Latin-inspired Zumba dancing by a group recently formed in the town.

She and her husband Frank, who is an avid collector of classic cars, have been involved with the event since it began in 1955.

"All past participants have received an invitation and a great roll-up of classic cars, hot rods and elite panel vans is expected on Saturday," Mrs Holmes said.

"Displays of tractors, trucks and stationary engines are also welcome."

With lots of men in the crowd, Cancer Council Queensland will offer an opportunity for a quick check of men's health by volunteer nursing staff to check blood pressure.
