Tenterfield Transport Museum hosted its Show & Shine at its Francis Streets grounds on Sunday, April 15 and what a show and shine it was.
Overnight rain washed off the dust and car lovers polished their beauties to perfection as all manner of vehicles was put on display.
New England Veteran and Vintage Car Club member Pat Gillespie was thrilled with his dual wins, scoring a trophy for best ute and another for being amongst the top five exhibits on the day.
His entry and 148 others were duly inspected by a throng of spectators enjoying the autumn sunshine and the attention to detail exhibited by these owners, some of whom travelled far to participate in the show.
In the top five were Chris Miller (2011 Sapphire Chopper), Rebecca Robertson (1959 Cadillac coupe), Colin Keep (1970 Ford Falcon XY GT sedan), Pat Gillespie (1954 Holden FJ sedan) and Dwayne Wells (Ford Fairlane ZC).
People's Choice was John Beaton’s 1973 Holden HQ GTS sedan.
