Rev up your engines – the Berrima District Historic Vehicle Club Rally is on again.
The 43rd annual weekend will be held on Saturday, February 16 and Sunday, February 17.
More than 100 vehicles will take part, ranging from veteran vehicles from the early 1900s to modern classic cars up to 1989.
Participants will represent more than 25 vehicle clubs from across NSW.
Entrants will also be in the running for trophies over the two-day event.
The theme of this year’s event is music, and the weekend will include a trip to Joadja Estate for its popular Summer Chill-Out Session.
Berrima Rally committee member Robyn Betts said the weekend was about camaraderie and showcasing vintage vehicles.
“We’re trying to preserve the historic vehicles. It’s good for people to be able to see them,” she said.
“It’s great for the club with friendships and family involvement.”
Mrs Betts said the weekend benefited the Southern Highlands community.
“It’s good for the local economy, which is usually quiet this time of year with everyone sending the kids back to school and paying off credit cards after Christmas,” she said.
Participants will hit the road and travel to several locations to socialise over the weekend.
Members of the public can view the cars for free at Mittagong Public School from 9.30am to 1pm on Saturday as well as from 8.30am to 9.30am and from midday to 2pm on Sunday.
Entry to the vintage vehicle showcase is via Lee Street in Mittagong.
