Thousands visit Car and Truck Extravaganza
This year's Mid Coast Ford Motorfest was the best event the town had seen in ten years, according to organiser, Ted Bickford.
The Great Lakes Advocate reported that there were enormous crowds on the day, with more than 10,000 people visiting the car and truck spectacular.
The annual show, held at John Wright Park in the Great Lakes region, even attracted a $1.1 million truck among the 200 vehicles that were presented.
The motor show's most prestigious award, the Bob Burns Perpetual Trophy, was presented to John Fletcher for his 1964 XF Ford Falcon.
Bickford claimed that this year's event was particularly popular with children. Attractions drawing in the crowds included the world's fastest dog, Bundy. Bundy and his owner, Tex, raise money for charity travelling around the country on Tex's motorcycle.
Event organisers, the Great Lakes Historic Automobile Club, teamed up with the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Truck Show for the bumper event, and raised $1600 for the helicopter charity.
