Sunday the 2nd of October marked the 7th annual Cora Lynn classic and vintage car show fundraiser. The recent wet weather broke to deliver an impeccably sunny day for a massive display of over 700 vehicles.

The drive itself was well worth it, through the peaceful Gippsland terrain. At the show there was everything you could imaginably think of from antique machinery, trucks, hot rods, vintage and classic cars and motorcycles. All pre 1979 the Cora Lynn show is considered the premier car event in Gippsland.

The children weren't forgotten either with a petting zoo, jumping castles and even a mechanical bull. The show was complete with a swap meet, barbecue lunch and RACV choice award.

All proceeds go to the Cora Lynn Community, sporting clubs and recreation reserve. Keep an eye out for next year's (2012) event. Lardner Park is only one hour's drive east of Melbourne and only twenty minutes from Pakenham.
