Ford Holden face off
THEY rolled into Cooyar with battle lines drawn and faced off to try to settle a decades-old feud.
Rain teemed down during the Ford versus Holden Show and Shine at the Cooyar Hotel but it did not stop 70 people putting their pride and joy on display.
Cooyar Hotel publican Karyn Williamson said it had been a fantastic day full of new and old high performance horsepower.
"We had close to 2000 people come through and there were 70 cars in the show and shine," she said.
"Craig Lowndes was amazing and he would have spent five or six hours signing autographs."
Ms Williamson said she had received fantastic feedback from Shannons Insurance, who brought along a driving simulator, and was considering making the show and shine a bi-annual event.
"The Shannons Insurance people said it was the biggest attendance for an event like this they have seen in a country town," she said.
"I want to thank everyone who helped as well as turned up and I would like to give special mention to Rod Watson who did a lot to help organise the day."
