Grampians Toy Club car show a success

Grampians Toy Club raised $2000 from its annual Stawell Gold Mine sponsored car show which will be donated to assist victims of the January bushfires.

One hundred and thirty cars, trucks, bikes from across the region were on display in Main Street making this year's event a huge success and one of the best car shows yet.

There were plenty of trophies and prizes handed out on the night with the top five category hotly contested.

Wayne Barber's newly finished Dick Johnson (Greens Tuff) XE Falcon was one of the winners while Deborah Tonkin made the presentation of the Mick Leonard Memorial trophy to Dan Decker for his '57 Chevrolet.

Judged by Mick's family this is the second year the trophy has been up for grabs and is the most sought after among all entrants.

Grampians Toy Club would like to thank sponsors Stawell Gold Mines, Autopro, Toyworld, Lyal Eales, Amcal Pharmacy, Inika Gifts, Shannons insurance and all of the members that made the event one to remember. They also appreciated the sponsorship of Frewstal Abattoirs for the provision of the meat for the barbecue.
