The Parkes Antique Motor Club (PAMC) and Central West Car Club (CWCC) have combined forces for the second year for a fantastic extravaganza with a record number of entries.
The public and car enthusiasts can delight in a display of classic, vintage and veteran motoring history cars, and get the opportunity to view and purchase from both novice and professional traders from far and wide.
The CWCC annual Show and Shine’s 13th year has grown rapidly to include the Sundowners Club, Club Commodore,
Monaro Owners Club, Monaro Local Club and Orana Elite Ford Club, as well as other clubs from far and wide with a record 191 vehicles, plus motor cycles and vintage machinery that was also on display last year.
There will be different entry gates for the Show and Shine (gold coin donation) and the Parkes Swap Meet ($5 entry) celebrating its 24th year. Entrance to the venue at Pioneer Oval will be from the eastern end of Victoria Street.
All proceeds from the car show will go to CanAssist. The Swap Meet attracts professional traders from all eastern
Australian states who usually set up stalls on Friday for an early 6am start on Saturday. All proceeds are administered by PAMC, a not-for-profit organisation, to resource the Parkes Motor Museum, which has a wonderful display of quality vintage and veteran vehicles.
The Parkes Motor Museum moved from its original 1972 location in an old disused service station on the corner of Dalton and Bogan Streets to the Henry Parkes Centre at the northern end of the Newell Highway. The centre incorporates the Parkes Visitor Information Centre, the King’s Castle Elvis Exhibition and Motor Museum, and Henry Parkes Museum and Antique Machinery Collection.
