Old or new, modified or original, we want to see them all- Ken Tatt
Next weekend, motor enthusiasts will once again converge on Windsor Park for this year's Holden & GM Car Show.
The event, which has been running for about a decade, pulls as many as 2000 petrol heads each year.

President of the Monaro and GM Club of Tasmania Ken Tatto said the exhibition is open to all Holden and GM cars owners.
"Old or new, modified or original, we want to see them all," said.
Mr Tatto's lifelong love for cars began as a child.
"I'm from Queenstown and I used to do the paper runs, when the papers were late I started reading car mags. It all started there," he said.
From there, Mr Tatto purchased his first collectors car in 1977, a Holden FX - the first model made in Australia.
"I started restoring the FX and just fell in love with it. After a bit more buying and selling I now have four cars and I've restored two of them.
"I try to restore them back to original - sometimes it's hard to get parts but you just have to keep after it," he said.
Of all of his current cars, Mr Tatto singled out his 1976 hatchback Holden Torana as his personal favourite.
Last year's event was marred by delays, poor weather and COVID-19 restrictions Mr Tatto said.
Food and drink will also be available as well as a variety of stall exhibitors. Ten public choice trophies will also be awarded to cars that stand out from the crowd.
"We've got a barbecue, music, a bouncy castle for the kids. There's plenty for everyone to do," Mr Tatto said.
This year's event will also include a special informative discussion on classic and modern collectable cars and their rising values, by Ben Percy of Shannons Insurance.
Last year's event ran into some trouble, with COVID-19 restriction holding down admission numbers but fans still made it out in support.
"I was just blown away by the amount of people that turned up. It was just great to see,"
The event will run from 10am to 2pm on Sunday, November 28, at Windsor Park in Riverside. The Department of Public Health has directed that masks are required to be worn while inside the event and while queuing.
Admission is $5 for adults and free for children under 16 and display cars and their drivers.
