Classic cars to make way through Tweed Heads streets

TUGUN will turn back the clock when the annual Autorama hits town next month.

The Gold Coast Antique Auto Club is hosting the event that should have about 100 cars on display from a time when driving a car was a privilege rather than a necessity.

Club president Graham Cogzell said the Autorama event would include a driving tour through the Tweed.

"There will be approximately 100 historical vehicles ranging in age from early 1920s to at least 30 years old," Mr Cogzell said.

"The vehicles are coming from the Blue Mountains in the south to Rockhampton in the north and Toowoomba region in the west."

"Entrants will enjoy rallies travelling through the country areas of Gold Coast and northern NSW.

"The vehicles will also be judged for winners in various categories."

Organisers of last year's event said numbers should be similar this year with car owners coming to the event every year.

The 42nd Autorama is on Saturday November 3 and Sunday November 4 at Don Paxton Park, Station St in Tugun.

The judging of vehicles is on the Sunday 8.30am at the park.
