Thanks for a great 2014 Show!

The committee of the Nelson Car Show Trust would like to thank everyone who made the 10th anniversary 2014 Show such a great event.

Fine weather, a relaxed atmosphere and a great venue set the scene. Our major sponsors, Sturgeon's Amusements and Radio Hauraki, made the event possible. Enthusiastic owners brought along around 200 vehicles of many different makes and models to create this great experience. Spectators couldn't help but enjoy the quality and variety on display, and the positive family-friendly vibe of our favourite hobby was obvious for all to see.

Thanks to the Nelson Drag Racing Association, Robyn Beaumont is the lucky winner of a passenger ride down the drag strip – head along to the meeting on 5th April at the Motueka Dragway to check it out!

Hundreds of votes were tallied to find the winner of the coveted People's Choice award, which went to Brett Kennedy's amazing 1969 Dodge Charger. With this award came an exquisite one-off custom key ring crafted in 9 caret gold by Glen James Jeweller.

Thanks must go once again to all the owners who brought their pride and joy along to both the cruise and the show, including many from out of town. We know there wouldn't be much of a show without you and we hope you enjoyed it as much as we did!
