Barry Rutledge, Allan Buckley, Steve Beckwith, Ken Jepson, Wayne King, Ian Cornish, Rob Greiner and Lance Mitchell in Deniliquin on Saturday.
The Waring Gardens was adorned with hot rods and vintage cars on Saturday to promote the upcoming Rich River Rod Run.
Car lovers from Deniliquin and Echuca made their way to Deniliquin’s CBD as a promotion for the upcoming event.
The Rich River Rod Run takes place in Echuca from March 14 to 16, however entrants will travel to Deniliquin on the Saturday for a display of hot rods and custom cars in the Waring Gardens.
The public will be able to peruse an estimated 200 vehicles dating from the 1920s to the 1970s that will roll into town.
Rich River Rod Club member Steve Beckwith from Deniliquin said the run has been held biennially since the early 1990s.
‘‘I suggested to the Rich River members that Deniliquin would be a great place to have the day run,’’ Mr Beckwith said.
‘‘A little while later I received a phone call saying, ‘We’re coming to Deni!’.
‘‘Last time the club went to Kyabram and the cars filled the entire main street and spilled into the side streets.
‘‘It will be the first time the rod run has ever come to Deniliquin. It came as close as Mathoura in the nineties.
‘‘The event is run every two years and they come to a different town each time for lunch.
‘‘They’ll park in the Waring Gardens and the judging of the show will take place. The results will be announced back in Moama.
‘‘It will be great for Deniliquin because people will have lunch and shop in the town.
‘‘The cars should be in town for a few hours and everyone is welcome to get down to the gardens and have a look.’’
