THERE’S no doubt that the Wonthaggi Show and Shine was weather-affected last Sunday as temperatures soared towards the 40 degree mark.
But there were some great cars, bikes, a tank and other vehicles to look at all the same and none better than a 1958 Corvette brought along by former local car dealer Tony Cuzzupi.
The beautiful, black convertible is a true work of art to look at and of course, an absolute pleasure to drive.
“I don’t get it out nearly as much as I’d like,” said Tony who with the other members of the Bass Coast Historic Automobile Club put on one of the best displays at the annual event.
“Apparently they cost more to build at the time than they could sell them for so they are quite a unique car.
“Apart from a bit of a clean-up, it’s pretty much in original condition.”
Also of interest was a big beautiful pink Cadillac owned by hire car driver, Ron Dyer of Croydon.
“They really came up with some outrageous design features in the day,” he said of the 1959 Caddy.
“You’d have to wonder what they were on at the time,” he said referring to the rocket ship style tail lights.
Ron has a four-door Cadillac and a matching two-door which he hires for weddings and special occasions.
