Swap Meet success

WALLAN Scouts and Greenhill Committee members were all smiles on Sunday, September 24 as thousands of people flocked to the annual swap meet at Greenhill Reserve.
The weather was almost perfect for such an occasion and the sun was shining on gleaming chrome and polished paintwork as an array of beautiful old cars and vehicles lined up on the lower oval for all to see.
Scout Treasurer David James said the day had exceeded all expectations. He said the 7th annual swap meet and classic car show attracted over 200 stall holders as well as several thousand visitors from across Victoria, NSW and South Australia  to buy, swap and sell vehicle parts, collectables and all sorts of old items .
“The lovely old cars were very popular. Nearly half the sites have already been booked for next year,” Mr James said.
The Wallan Scouts and Greenhill Committee would like to thank John Sparks for his steam engine display, Rusty from TV programme Bumper to Bumper for filming the car show and local rock band Rockit for keeping people entertained.
