All revved up for the car-lovers’ big day out

THERE will be great attractions at Sunday’s third annual Albatross Show-N-Shine.

Car lovers will be well catered for with a wide variety of vehicles on show including a significant display of locally owned historic race cars, ranging from an ex-Alan Jones formula one race car, ex-Larry Perkins V8 Commodore, Alf Bargwanna with his Torana XU-1 Group NC race car, and many other ex-Bathurst race cars and speedway cars.

Josh Boskovich, from Bosko Racing will have his XA GT Falcon coupe dragracer, which is powered by a 383 cubic inch small block Ford, injected with alcohol and gains additional power from nitrous oxide on show, while Brett Smith will have his 1/4 scale “afterburning” turbine powered ¼ scale jet Dragster.

Both will be fired up during Sunday’s show.

There will also be a sound-off competition.

For the children there will be face painting and colouring competition, an inflatable slide and jumping castle, as well as the Spark Plug Challenge.

For the adults there will be automotive trades stands.

Throughout the day there will be raffles, food and refreshments and a live band, the Swamp Donkeys, featuring two of the South Coast’s best artists together, Chalkie White and Ricky Lynch.

Entry to the show is just a gold coin.

The Show-N-Shine will be staged between 10am-3pm.


In an article in Wednesday’s Register it was stated that along with the gold coin entry charge, spectators would get a free pass to the Fleet Air Arm Museum, but that is only for car entrants in the show. Spectators can however still make use of the museum during the show, however they will have to pay the regular museum admission price.
