The event attracts a large number of classic and vintage cars, hot rods, tractors, trucks and bikes.

This year there will also be Tappet Cover and Box Car racing. The Tappet Cover Cars are made from rocker covers of an actual motor. Box Cars are of any design. The vehicles are raced down a 10 metre track  and both types of cars are powered by gravity.

The vehicles are placed at the top of a specially constructed incline, they are released at the same time and the first to cross a finish line at the bottom of the incline wins the race.

Entry to the event for the general public is $5 and for exhibitioners $10 per car, with all money raised going to the St Andrews’s Cancer Care Centre, John Stedman Unit. Food and drink stalls will be operating throughout the afternoon and evening.

The event will be held in the St Andrew’s car park with entry off  Holberton Street, Toowoomba.
