Whilst attending a recent car cruise, I bumped into a gentleman called Les who told me that he and his lovely wife, Marie were organising a car show at the Westernport Festival. He also asked if I was interested in being involved in a photo shoot with his 1958 Chevrolet Biscayne at a local Warbird Hanger, to use the images for promotion. I’d previously posed with his wicked kustom ‘Hastings Sheriff’ car, and was more than happy to shoot with it again.
This time, I was accompanied by a stunning pinup model who is known as Treasure Fontaine. Naturally, I couldn’t help sharing some of my photos from the day with you, including a few with Les and Marie’s gorgeous seven-year-old daughter named Ruby. I also thought that I’d tell you a bit about the FREE car show, of course!
The Westernport Festival Car Show will be held at the Foreshore, situated on Marine Parade in Hastings, Victoria (Australia) on Sunday February 26th 2017 from 10:00 am until 3:30 pm.
It will be open to a vast array of unique, special interest cars including chrome bumpers, classics, vintage vehicles, hot rods and kustoms. Of course, kustom motorbikes and trucks are also invited. Car clubs are most welcome to attend too, however it is encouraged that you get in touch with the event organisers so that they can arrange parking areas to cater for your member’s vehicles.
This car show is absolutely FREE to enter! It is also anticipated that there will be some unique show categories for the special interest vehicles to enter. The prizes for these will be sponsored by Les’ business, Local Bloke With a Ute, which is a great couriering and transport, home maintenance and test and tag business based in Hastings.
In addition to a cool car show, there will be a pinup competition! It will be judged by the Miss Westernport entrants and anyone is welcome to enter. You can simply register for FREE on the day! Aside from a category for dolls, there will be a best-dressed section for the kids and of course one for the guys too. So why not rock your favorite retro outfit and join in all the fun?
Since no event would be complete without some splendid live music, the organisers have booked some rockin’ bands to keep your toes tapping. One of these is the Straight 8’s who have been playing for decades -since 1984 in fact! They are the original old-school tough guys, with an authentic style rockabilly, right outta the fifties. I’m pretty sure that if you shut your eyes whilst they are up on stage, you will be whisked right back into that bygone era, just listening to their amazing Southern style Hillbilly Rock.
Additionally, these notorious and longstanding rockabilly legends will be supported by talented local band, Diddy Reyes and the 59 Rockers! They’ll captivate you with a lively mix of blues and rockabilly, with their own unique twist and greaser bad boy of the fifties charm.
So with live entertainment from these incredible bands, a pinup competition for the dolls, a best-dressed competition for both the guys and kids and a car show, this is surely an event not to be missed! It will definitely be a fun-filled day for your entire family to enjoy. Admission to all this is absolutely FREE, so why not cruise on down with your family to the The Westernport Festival Car Show on Sunday February 26th and join in all the fun?
