With more 1,300 cars participating this year’s Cooly Rocks On, there may have been a few overheated radiators as the parade of ‘50s and ‘60s automobiles took to the streets of Coolangatta, Kirra and Tweed Heads on Saturday and Sunday for Shannon’s Show’n’Shine.
All cars at Cooly Rocks On must have a production date of 31 December 1969 or earlier but replicas built prior to that date are also eligible to enter.
Organisers boast it is ‘one of the most extraordinary and unique displays of custom and classic cars and hot rods in the country. Behind every one of these cars is a fascinating history and a fastidious owner.’
They estimate the value of cars on display this year topped the $30 million mark.
