Steel Bumper Sunday raises over $5,000 for the Bayswater CFA!

On Sunday 30th of March Rare Spares sponsored the annual ‘Steel Bumper Sunday’ event, which was held at the Manhattan Hotel in Ringwood.

The not-for-profit event which called on all cars from the era of steel bumpers, raised just over $5,000 for the Bayswater CFA!

Steel Bumper Sunday was born of the idea of hosting a unique car show for a niche group of enthusiasts who share a passion for vehicles originally manufactured with steel bumpers.

Organising a diverse display of classic, historic and modified vehicles, all originally fitted with steel bumpers, the goal is to showcase cars from a variety of vehicle manufacturers and countries.

More than doubling last year’s revenue, 427 cars donated at the gate on entry, over 400 raffle tickets were sold and the CFA sold 700 sausages.

Rare Spares are proud to sponsor the annual event and were honoured to present the Real Street and Real Restoration trophies to winning recipients.

It was fantastic to see such a great turn out this year, with event managers having to find extra space for cars!

Mitchell took his Father along for the weekend and raved about the experience.


“I had such a great weekend and I would love to do it again. Big thanks to Rare Spares, David Rayner, Amy Rayner, Hamilton (JB’s manger) and John Bowe for the great weekend and the experience dad and I enjoyed,”
he said.


“Adelaide is a very nice place to stay and the hotel Rare Spares set up was wonderful. The dinner with John Bowe, David Rayner and Hamilton was great and we laughed a lot and got to learn a little more about the category JB is racing in.”


“We got to do so much more then we were expecting, like the tour of Jason Bright’s pit and car. It felt like we were part of the team being able to go into pit lane as John Bowe lined up to race.
