Mr Chris Horewood, of
Lyndoch, has always had a
passion for cars, in particular
Chris got his first motorbike
when he was 13 and his first
car soon after.
“My first cars were street
machines, an L34 Bathurst
Torana and a HK Bathurst
Monaro,” he said.
“But hot rods have always
been my passion.”
Chris has been building cars
for the past 10 years and now
has a fully equipped shed.
“Building cars for myself and
others is what I love most,” he
“My main car at the moment,
a 1932 5 window Coupe, took
me six years to build.
“It has a Holden 308
injected motor and turbo 700
“It is also air conditioned,
has electric windows and cruise
Chris does not only work on
“I do a lot of work on street
machines and old cars too,”

Chris to cruise in Coupe
This Saturday the Valley Hot Rodders will host
the twenty-third annual Cruise On.
With over 400 cars expected to attend, Tanunda’s
Murray Street will once again be filled with the
sounds of beefed up engines.
Mrs Trudy Vaughan, secretary of the Valley Hot
Rodders said the format of this year’s event will
be slightly different.
“The Saturday cruises will be visiting some of
the gems of the Barossa in small groups,” she said.
“Gully Gardens, Carl Lindner’s Jag collection,
the Chevy museum, the brewery and the aviation
museum are some of the planned short stops, so
keep an eye out.”
The main event will be held on Saturday evening
with entertainment for everyone.
“This is a family friendly event, free to the whole
community,” she said.
“There will be two bands performing. The
Satellites will play on the verandah of the Tanunda
Hotel between 7 p.m. and 11 p.m.
“A dance floor will be in place and many
rock ‘n’ roll dancers from around South Australia
come along for the night.
“East Texas will also be playing from 6.30 p.m.
until 9.30 p.m. in the rotunda.”
The criteria for this year is pre 1970 Hotrods,
customs and American Classics.
“Vehicles meeting the criteria can enter at the top
of Tanunda’s main street after 5 p.m. and pay $10
to park your car in the static display,” said Trudy.
Trudy is very proud of the work the Valley Hot
Rodders have done for the community.
“We are a small club, only 15 families working
to put this event together,” she said.
“We are proud to say that over the last
10 years, we have donated over $10, 000 back into
our community as a result of the money raised
during the Cruise On.”
Four hundred cars
expected for Cruise On
