JOHN Manwaring travelled 4200 kilometres across the country to attend this weekend's FE-FC Holden Nationals in Toowoomba.

There will 97 cars from all over the country on show at the nationals.

Mr Manwaring recently arrived from Perth and said the nationals was a great opportunity to meet up with like minded people.

"I love the cars and I like the comradery of the show," he said.

FE-FC Holden Car Club of Queensland president Ron Cook said Toowoomba was the perfect location for the event.

"We looked at different areas around Queensland and we found we got a good reception here," he said.

"The atmosphere at the nationals is always electric and the town has everything we need to run a successful show."
