The American Classic Car Club Canterbury is planning another big USA Day this year, with more than 650 cars expected to be on display in Woodend on Sunday, November 4.

“Any American-origin vehicle is welcome,” says the club’s secretary/treasurer Jimmi Anderson. Stalls will be selling food and American-themed motoring items.

There will also be a bouncy castle, plus novelty toys and a games stall for children, and lots of spot prizes and raffles for the adults throughout the day.

The show runs from 10am to 3pm at the Gladstone Park rugby grounds.

Cars on show will come from all over the South Island, mainly from the wider Christchurch area, but with some from the West Coast, Timaru, Dunedin, Invercargill and Nelson.

Visitors from the North Island are also likely, with the owners of some cars on display at the recent National Mustang Convention in Napier planning to head south.
