Classic, Hot Wheels and vintage fashion


The Geelong Revival Motoring Festival roars in Geelong with over 900 cars and motorbikes on display on the Geelong waterfront from November 25-27.

Events range from historic quarter-mile sprints on Ritchie Boulevard to a trade show featuring exhibits and demonstrations, a vintage lifestyle zone and the National Vintage Fashion Awards.

In a festival first, the Hot Wheels Stunt Team will hold a series of stunt demonstrations on Ritchie Boulevard on the Saturday and Sunday of the event.

The team will also have the Hot Wheels truck with them, which is full of activities and games for children and adults.

Geelong vintage vehicle owner Simon Anderson will showcase three Brass Era cars and motorcycles on the Sunday of the festival.

“The blue is a 1910 Brush, only made for five years in America because the Model T came out and killed everyone in the market,” Mr. Anderson said.

“It’s a pretty unique little car. It was built very cheaply, for the people. Most of it is wood, even down to the chassis rails.

Mr Anderson, who is a member of the Western District Historic Vehicle Club and the Veteran Car Club, said vintage cars had always been a part of his life.

He said car enthusiasts come from all over the country to visit Geelong for the Motoring Festival.

“It’s huge, we have potentially 1,000 cars arriving in those three days, and thousands of people,” he said.

“Even in our small group there are people who come from Queensland, just to come and see, which is fantastic. And that’s fantastic for Geelong and for the economy as well.
