100 Vehicles from 100 Years
The Victorian Automobile Chamber of Commerce (VACC) is staging a FREE Cavalcade and Show 'n Shine on Saturday 22nd September to celebrate its 100th birthday.
The VACC Centennial Cavalcade and Show 'n Shine will showcase historical vehicles produced in 100 years between 1918 and 2018.
100 vehicles from 100 years will be waved off from Calder Park Raceway at 8.30 AM by event ambassador and participant Shane Jacobson and be led up the Calder to Bendigo by a 1918 Buick Roadster, arriving in Bendigo at approximately 11 AM.
Following arrival in Bendigo, the vehicles will be displayed from midday to 4 PM within the Bendigo Town Hall precinct with enthusiasts invited to either come and view magnificent vehicles from the past or to showcase their own historical cars, commercial vehicles, trucks or motorcycles of any make, model or vintage between 1918 and 2018.
This old beauty probably won't be up to attending this year but there'll be plenty of other vehicles to highlight the VACC's Centenary.
Perhaps something like this lovingly restored two-seater.
This is a community-focused event celebrating the founding of the VACC in Bendigo on 20th September 1918. The day will feature a range of food and beverage vendors together with lots of great activities for kids of all ages including roving acts, performers, face painting, magicians, games and several kids favourite characters.
100 vehicles from 100 years will be flagged off from Calder Park Raceway and led up the highway to Bendigo by a 1918 Buick Roadster.
