Trade stands, displays, refreshments and kid’s entertainment all added to the festival atmosphere on the day.

Rare Spares Newcastle Distributor Wolfy’s Auto One store, in conjunction with the 48-78 Holden Car Club, host an auto enthusiast event every second Saturday of the month called Wolfy’s Classic Car Park Up.

Classic car enthusiasts come together to share their passion and raise money for the club and charities with a sausage sizzle and display of some of the finest rides around.

“The club hosts the event, but they’re non-discriminatory, they’ll even let Fords come,” said Lance from Wolfy’s Auto One.

The 48-78 Holden Car Club’s Events Coordinator Gary said, “It’s a bit of a social gathering for anyone with a passion for older cars, but everyone is welcome.”

Wolfy’s supports them by offering store discounts and novelty prizes for vehicle owners.

The club is the oldest Holden car club in Australia and has over 80 members. They’re looking forward to soon redeeming a club banner from the Rare Spares Loyalty Club.

You can catch them at the upcoming charity event, Tilligary Motorama, at the Tilligary Sports Club on May 18th.

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!
