Craig ‘‘Whiskas’’ Veysey reckons there’ll be ‘‘something for everyone’’ at this year’s Shepparton Custom Bike, Car and Tattoo Show.
‘‘It’s a cliche, but it’s true,’’ the event’s publicity co-ordinator said.
‘‘You see the young ones coming through with their hotted-up cars, the old guys with their vintage models .
‘‘To cap it all off you’ve got a music festival, non-stop music from 12 during the day to 12 at night.’’
Mr Veysey said he expected to see up to 3000 bike riders, car enthusiasts and tattoo lovers from across Australia descend on the Overlander Hotel on Saturday to show off their pride and joy and check out the competition.
‘‘The people who bring their own stuff, that’s what makes it special,’’ he said.
‘‘There’s a new generation of people coming through with motor vehicles that are into showing them off .
The day’s entertainment will feature local acts Pale Rider, Bone Dry as well as Mick Coates and The Allnighters and the Angels tribute show, Darkroom.
Mr Veysey said the best part of the show was seeing everybody come together.
‘‘It’s just a real melting pot of ages and people and hobbies and passions,’’ he said.
‘‘You get people from all over.’’
