Cars join in rock 'n' roll

CLASSIC car and rock'n'roll enthusiasts have flocked to North Ipswich Oval in huge numbers for this year's Back to 63 Classic Car Show and Shine.

The event, organised by Booval-based club Just Rock Ipswich, showcased prestige, vintage and collector vehicles to the unmistakable sounds of live rock'n'roll music.

Club spokesman Luke Way said more than 330 cars rolled through the gate to take part in the show, some travelling from as far as Tasmania.

"Since we don't charge admission for the event, it's hard to say exactly how many visitors attended the show," Mr Way said of the club's 20th annual show.

"But if I had to guess, I would say about 3000 to 5000 people passed through the gate. When you put on an event like this, you never know what the turnout is going to be like, but this has definitely been one of our best ever."
