If you don't like bright, shiny classic and custom cars, you will probably scroll through this blog thoroughly bored. It's okay, there IS something wrong with you and we'll just snigger behind our hands at your unfortunately situation. Tsk tsk!
I took a total of 217 photographs on the day. I've managed to wittle it down to 93 for the blog and that was no mean feat I tell you! I really only took pics of the outstanding cars. And we only managed to get through 2 of the 3 zones! I have no idea how many cars were actually on display - there were so many varying numbers being bandied about that I just couldn't figure out what the true number was. Let's just say A LOT and leave it at that. Sensory overload!
Doug had spent the day at Wintersun with his family on the Saturday but came down and joined us for a good look at the cars. Trying to keep an eye on & chasing after an extremely adventurous 2 year old must've been a helluva distraction for a boy wanting to drool over all that shiny metal! LOL!
Some of the artwork Doug did for this year's festival (hope you don't mind me pinching the images of your website Doug!)
On our way down to the Gold Coast in the morning we were engulfed by an enormous thunder storm. By the time we got to Coolangatta, the rain had stopped and the skies had started to clear.
There must be a VERY short person who drives this hotrod - anyone taller than 4'2" will have their knees knocking their ears!
And to our surprise, out steps the Sheriff himself - in authentic dress too! He wasn't impressed with this girlie & her sister so.....
This guy's eyes were completely freaky so I asked if I could get a pic - he insisted I be in the pic too.
There were quite a few people dressed up - more as it got later. I suspect there were some late risers after all the festivities on Saturday night.
We saw a few Elvis's. They have a huge Elvis competition & people come from all over Australia & the rest of the world to compete.
Another fabulous custom job! Unfortunately it was a real attraction and I couldn't get a very good shot. This was the trailer - it was a replica of the car, just with bonnet & boot joined together. It's the ultimate party car... Fold out bar, bar stools in the back, on the bonnet side of the trailer there's a built in esky (coolbox). The inside of the car is also kitted out with fold down drinks trays, a kick-ass sound system and even has an airconditioner fitted. All colour coded in black and yellow.
A genuine mobile DJ! What an amazing setup inside. DJ for hire - only really good for street parties though.
This beautiful Astin Martin even had lots of switches and knobs which I'm sure Scott was just itching to try out!
Hope you enjoyed our trip around Wintersun with us!
