Woolgoolga welcomes Hot Rods

Hot Rodders love showing off their vehicles.

POLISHED to perfection, more than 100 Hot Rods will gather in Woolgoolga for the 23rd annual Lazy Winter Run hosted by the Mid North Coast Hot Rod Club.

To be held over the Mother’s Day weekend, a high spot is the extremely popular Show and Shine event on the Saturday at Woolgoolga Diggers Club.

The array of stunning cars will be buffed and gleaming ready for display.

“Owners love to display their Hot Rods and chat with onlookers, as many have spent hours of blood sweat and tears in the journey of their creation,” Mid North Coast Hot Rod Club Committee spokesperson Bruce Sanders told News Of The Area.

The club has presently 38 active members, many of whom are participating in the 2024 Lazy Winter Run.

Bruce reports entries are now flooding in and the event promises to be another well-attended occasion.

“This year the general public has the chance to show off their muscle or classic car alongside the hot rods, too,” said Hot Rod tragic Bruce.

“If people wish to display their vehicles we advise them to please arrive a bit earlier.”

The Darlington Beach Holiday resort at Arrawarra will be home-base for the three day event.

“The recent shift to this family-friendly location has proven to be a popular choice with very strong numbers entered.

“After Covid sidelined the event for two years our former home venue was unfortunately inundated with bookings and we had to find alternate arrangements.

“It is a great move to ‘Darlo’ as the facilities are kid and family friendly, it has a large main dining and conference hall we use as home base and a wonderful park to serve as an outside staging area.

“The staff are very friendly and helpful and love the cars.”

The Hot Rod Club also holds a mini Show and Shine in the park, for which they present an award at the Saturday night auctions and presentation dinner.

“We very much hope the public once again comes along and supports the event that we are so very proud to host in beautiful Woolgoolga,” said Bruce.

“We love showing off our hot rods and our town.”
