To celebrate Driven Threads headed down to the Mckinnon Accident Repair centre’s annual Hot Rod and Classic car show.

With perfect Spring sunshine, the first thing that we spotted was arguably the cleanest EH ute in the country. This fine ride was in attendance last year, but it seems to look even better now. Check out our coverage of last year’s show here.

The magic bullet. As we have said before, it’s all in the exquisite details with these cars.

Sometimes a lowered stance and understated steelies is all you need.

The retro colour scheme on this hot rod was the perfect choice.

This Ford Galaxy 1963 500 Coupe would be the perfect cruiser in the summer.

The Pontiac Firebird is such a cool looking machine. The integrated bumpers into the design of the front end is such a unique feature.

Sporting some massively wide rear wheel and rubber was this Charger. The presentation of this Australian classic was impeccable.

This GT Falcon has got the same Aussie swagger going on.

You can see the American influence on cars like the EH Holden, from the front end of this Plymouth convertible.

Thunderbirds are go. The first generation Ford Thunderbird was first produced in 1953 in reply to Chevrolet’s new sports car, the Corvette.

The second generation Ford Thunderbird produced from 1958-1960 has got retro, ‘space age’ and modernity written all over it.

Back in the day, powering this Thunderbird was around a 300 horsepower 220 kW 5.8 L V8, available with a 3-speed manual or an optional automatic.

But timeless style, like all these cool cruisers comes standard.
