More than 125 vehicles proudly displaying the SS, or super sport, badge turned the car park at the Shepparton Motor Museum into an extra attraction on Saturday.

The drivers were all members of the SS Owners Club of Victoria, which chose the museum as the destination for its last, and largest, rally of the year.

President Chris Sanderson said it was the most SS vehicles the club had gathered at a single event.

Most came in a convoy from Melbourne, but their were also cars from across north-east Victoria.

‘‘Everyone had an awesome day with cars from all over the state, that was a record for us,’’ he said.

The only snag was a vehicle involved in a minor bingle on the way to Shepparton, but even that turned out for the best after the raffle for a bar fridge was drawn.

‘‘The winner turned around and donated it to the members who had the accident, which shows the sort of club we are,’’ Mr Sanderson said.

The raffle and other activities also raised about $1500 for cancer charity Challenge.

‘‘We had a lot of people come in to look at the cars and we got a few new members, too,’’ Mr Sanderson said.

‘‘We presented the museum with one of our SS owners plaques and we are going to put the run into our calendar every second year, we loved it, it is a great venue.’’
