In 1992, Rotarians Dennis Jones & Terry Thomas, had the idea that a car show featuring early American cars and Hot Rods would be a worthwhile addition to the clubs Fund Raising program. As they were also members of the ‘Thunderbirds Rod & Custom Club’ and Hot Rod enthusiasts, Dennis & Terry organised the inaugural ‘All American Car Display & Swap Meet’, which was held in February 1993. The event was held in conjunction with the ‘Thunderbirds’ and has met Dennis’ and Terry’s vision to become a very successful event, and a major contributor to the Rotary Club’s fundraising effort.
The ‘All American’, held at the Gembrook Football oval has become an annual fixture, and is recognised in the Hot Rod fraternity as one of the most successful car displays of its type, regularly attracting in the order of 700 display cars.
