Clarence Car Show draws a crowd

NEARLY 200 cars of varying makes and models were on display at South Street Reserve in mid-March when the Lions Club of Clarence hosted its third annual Clarence Car Show.

A veritable treasure trove for vintage vehicle enthusiasts, event highlights included a 1926 Austin Seven, 1931 Whippet Overland, Porche 911 and a very rare replica of a 1965 AC Cobra.

It also displayed an old fire engine supplied by the Tasmanian Fire Service.

Lions Club of Clarence president and event coordinator Peter Goldstone-James said the car show continued to grow each year.

“The popularity of the event shows that these vehicles still have the ability to entertain those in the community that have an eye for the work and effort that goes into maintaining these beautiful vehicles,” he said.

“We wanted to show 200 cars and if we continue growing, we will likely reach this goal at next year’s event.

“We would like to thank all the car owners for coming and making our annual car show such a success, as well as all those who took the time to attend.”

Funds raised during the event will go towards the Lions Club of Clarence’s bushfire relief projects.
