The inaugural Eskleigh Home car show fundraiser is scheduled to take place on Sunday.
Over 30 collectors from across the state are set to show off their pre-80s cars at the Eskleigh Estate Meeting and Function Centre.
The event is part of the Eskleigh Foundation's initiative to work towards developing an outdoor relaxation space for residents to enjoy.
The foundation's State Program and Activity Team Lead Jessica Brown said the estate, which was initially donated by land owners 71 years ago, was home to a group of residents with a passion for cars.
She recalled a few had recently undertaken a project, with the help of mechanics, where an old Vauxhall was completely rebuilt. They were now planning on displaying the vehicle at the show.
"My job, in particular, is to support the residents and help make their passions come to life here," she said
"The access to car shows is quite limited for us, so we thought we should put the grounds to good use and have one here."
Eskleigh resident and car enthusiast Leigh Warren will be showing off his 1964 EH Holden station wagon at the fundraiser.
Mr Warren said the vehicle served as his family's car during his childhood until his father passed it down to him in the 1980s.
He said he had kept the vehicle in good condition since then and, after coming to Eskleigh two years ago, he continued to do so with the assistance of the facility's staff.
"It's a darn good make," he said.
"Good old Holdens, they last forever."
Ms Brown said the foundation was looking into additional support that they may be able to fit into the classic vehicle to ensure Mr Warren could once again ride in his pride and joy.
She also hoped the Sunday car show would be the first of many to be held at the 32-bed facility.
Ms Brown expected the foundation's plans to develop sections of the estate, set to include a mural, would be completed by the end of the year. However, she believed a further $2000 was still needed in order to fund the upgrade.
The Eskleigh foundation requested the public wear masks to the event, but noted that disposable masks would be supplied at the door for those who may forget.
Admission on the day is a gold coin donation. More information can be found at www.eskleigh.com.au.
