Motoring enthusiasts are putting extra shine on their prized cars, trucks and motorbikes ahead of a fundraising show at Craigieburn later this month.

The annual Craigieburn Car, Truck and Bike Show will be held at Craigieburn Central on Sunday, February 26.

The event, which is now in its third year, aims to bring motoring enthusiasts and the community together.

Organiser Jim Overend said the show will feature cars dating back 50 years, as well as more modern models.

“[The event] sparks the child in all of us,” he said. “There will be lots of bike, cars and trucks of all different shapes and sizes.

“Enthusiasts who love to show their cars will be there.

“But it also attracts people who might not be in a situation to buy something like that, but love to look at them,” Mr Overend said.

The event raises money for the Isabella and Marcus Paediatric Brainstem Tumour fund.

It’s on from 10am until 3pm.

Entry is $20 per car or truck and $10 per bike, while the general public can attend for free.
