Morayfield Auto Spectacular 2011

The Morayfield Auto Spectacular kicked off at 9.00am on Saturday 12th February, 2011. Our Club had a representation of 13 Studebakers for the Show & Shine display.


Our Studebakers attracted many spectators as they looked grand parked in between the Club’s Studebaker flags flying high in the breeze.

Dave Lucas won a trophy for Best of 1950 for his 1952 Studebaker Starlight Coupe. George Udovicich won a trophy for Best Convertible for his 1961 Studebaker Lark Convertible. Our Club won the trophy for the Best Represented Car Club, the President Dick Adsett gladly accepted the Trophy.

This was the first Auto Spectacular organized by the Caboolture Community Action Group to raise greatly needed funds for the Homeless & Needy of the Caboolture Community.
The group has approximately 35 very hard working volunteers who each week raise funds through sausage sizzles every Saturday morning. Cook ups are also supplied twice a week by volunteer chefs and the food is donated by generous organizations.

Mr Mark Ryan, local member for Caboolture officially opened the Morayfield Auto Spectacular and thanked everyone for supporting this very worthy charity.
Total number of vehicles displayed was approximately 350 of which 201 entered the Show & Shine.

The day had plenty of activity, things to see & do with live Blues and Rockabilly music by The Zephyr Project, food & drink stalls to keep everyone happy.
The Stall holders helped raise much needed funds especially the Slushee stall who donated all of their takings on the day to the Caboolture Community Action Group.
Thankyou to Dave Lucas for organizing our Studebaker Car Club to attend the Auto Spectacular, to Mick Malloy & Chris Skinner for helping with the judging and to Dick Adsett & Dave Lucas for taking the entry money at the gate.

Trophies were given for Best Car in different categories. Dave Lucas won a trophy for Best of 1950 for his 1952 Studebaker Starlight Coup. George Udovicich won a trophy for Best Convertible for his 1961 Studebaker Lark Convertible.
The Mayor’s choice – H.J. Monoro

The Studebaker Car Club of Qld donated trophies for the day. Our Club won the trophy for the Best Represented Car Club, and why wouldn’t we, with those fantastic Studebaker flags flying high!
The President Dick Adsett gladly accepted the trophy for all our sensational shiny Studebakers.
Mr Bruce Panton was a main organiser for the Show & Shine for which he did a tremendous job, he also is one of the orginal members of the Queensland Studebaker Car Club.
Bruce was the Treasurer of the club in 1970.

Everyone had a fun day perusing all the Classic Cars, Utes, Hot Rods & Motorbikes, lots of great models, makes, colours and loud rumbling.

Our club hopes the day was a huge success for the Caboolture Community Action Group and we will be there again next year in our Studebakers to help support such a worthy charity.
