Custom cars and hot rods filled the Waring Gardens on Saturday when the Rich River Rod Run travelled to Deniliquin for the first time.
There were few spaces left to fit any more vehicles in as the judging of the event took place.
Hundreds of people perused the spectacularly colourful ‘free to see’ display, which featured more than 150 vehicles dating from the 1920s to the 1970s.
Cars came from most parts of Victoria, with one owner describing the green backdrop of the Waring Gardens as a ‘‘magical’’ setting.
Deniliquin’s Barry Rutledge, who is also a Rich River Rod and Custom Club member, said it was a successful event.
‘‘It was a great turnout and would have been a great help to businesses in the town,’’ he said
‘‘Everyone was impressed with the day.’’
Les Horne, who showed his F100 1955 Ford, was equally as chuffed with the event and its park setting.
‘‘This is the best place I’ve seen on a rod run,’’ he said.
The Rich River Rod Run, which has been held biennially since the early nineties, started in Echuca on Friday.
Deniliquin Mayor Lindsay Renwick welcomed the event being brought to Deniliquin.
‘‘It shows yet another use of the wonderful Waring Gardens,’’ he said.
‘‘The quality of the vehicles were second to none.’’
