The event, run by the Rich River Rod and Custom Club, attracted 450 vehicles, with visitors from as far as Queensland, Sydney, Adelaide and Tasmania taking part in the three-day event.
A barbecue at Rich River Golf Club Resort greeted visitors on Friday night.
On Saturday, a field of 150 cars took to the Cobb Hwy, travelling from Echuca-Moama to Deniliquin for a show and shine and award judging at Waring Gardens.
Rich River Rod and Custom Club secretary Travis Owen said there were a few nervous glances to the heavens on Saturday night, as a violent thunder storm lashed Rich River Golf Club as guests enjoyed dinner.
Saturday night’s indifferent weather did not stop a crowd of about 1500 people and several hundred cars from packing the oval for a show and shine.
Mr Owen said the event was a chance for car lovers to show off their pride and joy, as well as chat with other car enthusiasts from across Australia.
‘‘There are some really unique cars here. Unlike a show for restored vehicles, here you could see the same car presented several different ways, depending on the character of the owner,’’ he said.
‘‘We host this show every second year and it has a great following, considering there are other car shows on this weekend.’’
Mr Owen said the weekend was not just about the cars.
‘‘We are a not-for-profit group. So any money we make from the weekend goes back into the community,’’ he said.
‘‘This year there was a raffle and auction of car memorabilia to raise money for the Echuca hospital’s Make Your Mark campaign.
‘‘In the eight years I have been involved in the event, we have raised $40,000 for community groups like the fire brigade and the SES.’’
