MOTORING enthusiasts from across WA will have their machines on display at a new car show specifically organised for Toyota lovers.
Toyota Enthusiasts Car Club WA (TECCWA) president Clinton Godde, and father and son team Chris, of Sawyers Valley, and Aaron Woodward, of Herne Hill, will have their cars front and centre at the first annual Toyotas in the Park event, to be held on Sunday, September 11, on The Esplanade Reserve (Alf Curlewis Gardens) in Perth, from 9am to 3pm.
Chris and Aaron converted their ‘Sera’ into an electric car by removing the petrol engine, with a computer controlling all electrics.
Mr Godde said the men chose the Sera model because it had a futuristic look.
“They carried out the majority of the work themselves and after taking it for a drive at 80km/h on Great Eastern Highway, I can say it is faultless,” he said.
Any person or club is welcome to attend the show with any Toyota bodied automo bile, including 4WDs.
“This is an opportunity to pull those long-hidden Toyotas out of the garage at least once a year,” Mr Godde said.
“We want to see old and new projects, barn finds, time pieces, restored classics and competition cars.”
A judging criteria has been finalised and includes original and modified classic, original and modified late model/ modern, Entrant's Choice and Best in Show categories with some light-hearted ‘Ratchet’ Award.
Full judging details are available on the entry form and the event is free for both entrants and spectators.
