Roma shines up for National Motoring Heritage Day

STUART Johnson had his pride and joy, a 1969 HK Holden Kingswood buffed up and on display at Apex Park.

His Kingswood was the first car he bought when he started his mechanical apprenticeship in Roma more than 40 years ago and it was one of many vintage cars - some as old as 100 years - on show at the National Motor Heritage Day in Roma on Sunday.

Historical Motor Club car enthusiasts had their prized possessions on display in tribute to Australia's motoring heritage historic vehicles.

Mr Johnson said he was proud to still have the original lug nuts on his Kingswood.

"It's fantastic to have a national day where we can celebrate what we are passionate about," Mr Johnson said.

Roma Historical Motor Club president Karen Dawes said was a national day where cars all over Australia come out on display or go on a run.

"We've done both here today and it's also to show the strength of the historical motoring community," Mrs Dawes said.
