The Tanunda Recreation Park will be open
for public parking on the night, making it
only a short walk to the huge display.
Mrs Vaughan said the event offers a great
atmosphere for the whole family, with live
music and a dance floor open for those who
enjoy rock 'n' roll dancing.
"It is not just about the 'rev-head' blokes,
it is quite often families who own these
beautiful cars," she said.
"There is something in it for the husband,
the wife and the kids.
"But, people enjoy seeing the gathering
of the cars, and being able to look at them,
because they really are amazing, especially
some of the customs.
"They are all very individual, and people
who own cars like looking to get ideas."
Outside the main event, over 120 hot rods
will be in the region for the whole January
19-21 weekend, with the Valley Hot Rodders
also hosting a variety of activities in the area
for those who have registered.
The public event, on January 20, will kick
off from 5pm and conclude late in the evening.

Special Day headed for Gawler
HOLDEN fans around Australia mourned
when the car manufacturer ceased
operations earlier this year, but the brand
is set to be celebrated along with other
General Motors (GM) classics at an
upcoming car show.
The 33rd annual GM Day will be held at
Gawler's Princes Park on Sunday, March
25, with classic car owners expected to turn
out in full force for the occasion.
The event is organised by the Tri-Five
Classics Association, and club president
Tony Meade said the closure of the Holden
Elizabeth plant has seen increased interest
surrounding classic cars.
"I feel like the interest, particularly
around old Holdens, seems to be higher
since the closure of the manufacturing
plant," he said.
"I think it's a little bitter-sweet because,
while it's sad that car manufacturing in
Australia has stopped, it's fantastic to see
how proud people are of their Holdens, and
they're excited to show them off."
Mr Meade said the event will see
250 GM vehicles from all eras entered
for judging, with many other attendees
bringing along their own classic vehicles
on the day.
"We predominantly get Holden vehicles,
but you do see plenty of other GM vehicles,
such as Pontiacs, Buicks, Cadillacs and a
few Oldsmobiles," he said.
"If you're a Holden fan, like me, it's
a good way to see the evolution of the
Holden over the years, because we get
plenty of different models on the day."
Trophies will be awarded across 30
different categories to vehicles judged the
best in show.
Show-goers will be kept hydrated and
well-fed by organised food and drink stalls
planned for the day.
Mr Meade said recent relaxation to
registration laws has seen a number of
people secure conditional and cheaper
registrations for their classic cars, which
they only bring out for special occasions.
"Rather than paying a full year's rego
on your car, you can now do a conditional
registration so it's a bit more affordable if
you only bring your classic car out a few
times a year," he said.
Having previously spent many years at
its home in Tanunda, last year was the first
time the event was held at its new home in
