The Annual Kiwanis All Ford Day was held on Sunday 16th February in Geelong bringing together lots of blue oval enthusiasts for a display of over 1,000 Ford show cars, car club displays, trophies and prizes, live music, kid’s rides, food vans and more.

The slightly overcast weather didn’t deter all the Ford fans and families who came down for a day of entertainment.

The annual festival is one of the biggest Ford events of the year, with appearances from Ford motoring legends Alan Moffat and John Bowe, bands and celebrities gracing the stages, autograph signing sessions and a Ford production development vehicle display. Rare Spares were there in full force, with a trade stand and voucher give-aways.

Remembering A Motoring Legend

24. January 2014 14:27 by Rare Spares in Rare Spares  //  Tags: , ,   //   Comments (0)

Rare Spares was honoured to announce that the late John Taverna was the winner of the Summernats 27 Rare Spares Legend Award for 2014.

In front of thousands of appreciative fans, John Taverna’s partner accepted the Rare Spares Legend award on John’s behalf at the Saturday evening Supercruise.

John Taverna was a street machine and drag racing legend in Australia, having built many famed drag cars and street machines that graced magazine covers, raced and turned up at shows all over the country and internationally. Two of John Taverna’s most recognisable cars were the JD Camira drag car and the pink 67 Camaro with the number plate CHASIS.

John also contributed greatly to drag racing though his role as the Victorian Divisional Director and later the National Deputy Director for ANDRA as well as his years spent as a Summernats judge.

 John will be sorely missed by everyone in the street machine world and Rare Spares are proud to have John Taverna as one of the Rare Spares Legends.
