Show and shine to raise money for orthopedic work in Fiji

HERVEY Bay car enthusiasts will come together in a few weeks time to socialise and raise some much-needed funds for orthopedic work in Fiji.

Autobarn Pialba will hold a charitable show and shine day, which will feature muscle, Japanese, European, vintage and retro cars.

Autobarn Pialba's fitter Geoff Wall wants car enthusiasts to be able to socialise at regular events.

"Basically it's to get the car community together with local businesses to start a good car scene in the bay area for enthusiasts," he said.

"We hope to have a once-a-month good car gathering."

For $10, owners are able to be in the running to win awards for the most modified car, best original car and people's choice.

Local businesses will also showcase their automotive products.

"We're looking really good at the moment, we have 60 cars entered," Mr Wall said.
