Salvo’s Christmas Hamper Car Show 2011

This car show was presented by the Australian Street Rod Federation and Salvation Army as part of the Salvo’s Christmas hamper appeal at the Cannington Greyhounds Station Street carpark on 23 October 2011. The venue of Cannington Greyhounds carpark was certainly not the most visually appealing, however the quality of vehicles in attendance was surprisingly good.

Entry for spectators was a gold coin donation, whilst those displaying their cars made a donation of non perishable food. All proceeds going to charity.

The venue itself was certainly not central, thus this show would appeal to many of the south of the river car enthusiasts. The show had an impromptu feel about it but was otherwise well organised, with some food available such as a sausage sizzle and drinks. Also there were toilets albeit located some distance away at the the Cannington hall. Plenty of spectator parking was available in and outside the venue.

As mentioned above, the quality of the vehicles at this show were of a high standard, in particular I liked the light blue ’57 Chev, the ’53 Cadillac and the Dodge Charger R/T.

A good show, and hope it returns for next year.
