LOCAL street machine enthusiasts did very well for themselves at the 2012 South Coast Nationals held at the jam packed Moruya High School.
Tom and Rhonda Wilson of Blackheath won the magnificent Supreme Ute[Pick-up Trophy with their stunning white, highly detailed HZ Holden one tonne ute.
Lithgow Bolts and Fasteners proprietor Geoff Sheather claimed two trophies with his newly built HQ Holden ute which ironically was partially finished with the assistance of Tom Wilson.
The standout purple machine gained second place Best Engine Bay and second place Best Ute-Pick-up in the Street Awards.
Geoff also displayed his immaculate 1959 FC Holden Sedan at Moruya while son Mick had his newly acquired lime green HQ/WB Holden ute on display.
A very surprised Bruce and Joyce Clark proudly accepted the Moruya Golf Club Authentic Class Best Authentic Trophy for their pristine better than new two tone green FJ Holden sedan.
This car was previously owned by local car dealer Harry Bennett but was in a very poor condition until fully restored and rebuilt by Bruce Clark and painted by perfectionist Tom Wilson.
Other locals to display their vehicles were Kevin and Jenny McKinney with a family owned 1959 Pontiac sedan and Les Taylor with the latest Oliver Toyota 86GT.
Bruce Clark, who also won the rocker cover racing competition, would also like to take this opportunity on behalf of the FX-FJ Holden Club of Australia (Sydney Chapter) to invite local car enthusiasts to the 21st FX/FJ Nationals to be held at Bathurst from December 28 to 31.
