Formerly known as Wintersun and now as 'Cooly Rocks On' is held every June in Coolangatta Queensland, it attracts over one thousand hot rods and pre 1980's street and muscle cars.
Hot Rods from every make and manufacturer are well represented. From simple antique custom Hot Rods to full blown show cars make up the numbers.
The show stretches over 1 kilometer along Coolangatta's Marine Parade, Griffith Street and side streets.
One of my favourite cars at the show is this retro 32 'Duece' Roadster. Whats not to like about the beautiful simple style.
More Cadillacs than Gracelands
Rock n Roll treats your ears wherever you turn.
Mopars at home next to slammed Beetles
This 69 Camaro stopped the crowd when the engine was turned.
Coolangatta has long been a favourite holiday location for Aussie families and is now firmly on the map as a Hot Rod experience destination.
The Show continues well into the night with the popular Night Street Cruise.
Whats happening and whats cool in the world of custom Street cars
