Off to the Jolt Cafe for Sunday breakfast saw Craig & Judy, Lyle & Tracey, George & Madonna, Sue, Earl & Connie, John & Dee and Ben enjoyed a very nice meal before heading off up to the lookout at Mt Archer to check out the sights of Rocky. The day saw the club’s new member Ben join us for his first cruise to show off his ride sporting its RED “P” plate.
John & Dee and George & Madonna drove to Biloela to take part in the Autofeste car show and shine. There were a number of car skill events available to entrants if they wished to try their hand, “spike the spud” barrel event etc. we both decided to leave this to the professionals with their purpose build machines. John & Dee picked up “Top Hot Rod” for the day. We had a safe trip home even though John had his alternator die just outside Rocky and George had a fuel pump issue which caused a couple of moments at traffic lights; great event to attend, well done to the Biloela crew for the day.
There was a number of the Highway 66 members who ventured to Bargara Beach for Rum City Rods & Customs Run. Warren & Sue, Brian & Penny took the vans; while John & Pat, George & Madonna, Earl & Connie, John & Dee lived it up in on site units or Motel rooms. John took out the Rocker cover challenge with his first attempt, beating some big name contenders from Gladstone and the Sunshine coast (Col). Everyone had a great time. A cruise to SeaJays Boats was organised and this was a real eye opener on how the boats are manufactured.
Last weekend a few of us displayed at the Rockhampton Heritage Village as part of Heritage Day Celebration. It was great day to be out plenty of interest and we were on our way again just after 2.

We’ve already mentioned in previous articles about the car show held at the Cawarral School. Some further pictures below for everyone to enjoy:
Thank you to Terry and Lloyd for the great props – for everyone to take a drive in the ‘hippy bus’ – all dressed in their ‘Peace, Love and Harmony’ finery. An example of the photos below:
Central Queensland is renowned for it’s beautiful winters – with Yeppoon not letting us down last weekend, when Highway 66 held it’s Annual Camp Out at Cool Waters.
Over 80 people attended the event – some having attended previous campouts, with others attending for the very first time.
Friday night “Welcome Night”, saw everyone catching up, with lots of laughter and fun. A lovely meal provided by the wonderful Sue and all her helpers was enjoyed by all.
Saturday morning a cruise ended at the Cawarral School – where everyone kindly displayed their cars, allowing the P & C to raise over $4000 for their school. The crowds that supported this small school was great to see, and Highway 66 were extremely pleased to assist them in this way. Thank you to those that offered the use of their vehicles for rides for the public. The Rods never stayed still for very long!
After lunch, everyone (cars included) congregated on the lawn for the annual ‘happy hour’. Lots of talking and laughing – especially when the ladies played party games kindly organised by Terry and Lyn. That one glass of red wine……well ?
Saturday night saw Peace, Love and Harmony dress up. Thank you Terry and Lloyd for the wonderful Hippy Bus and lots of costume bits and pieces – that lead to some great photos. Will post these separately.
From all the feedback from all the participants – think it’s safe to say another successful Highway 66 Campout. See you all next year.
As part of our Cap Coast Campout cruise this year we displayed our vehicles at a small country school in the township of Cawarral. This was an ideal location for us to enjoy morning tea while hoping to help the school raise some much needed funds. We are happy to say that this was very successful for all of us. We need to thank everyone from the campout and the general public who displayed vehicles and a huge thank you to our ride rods. Four of these rods were from the Reef City Rod n Custom club and all the rods did so many rides some of the drivers were dizzy. We are pleased to say that the couple of hours we spent at the school raised more than $4000. We’d like to congratulate Tineke as the success can be directly attributed to the way she promoted the event. Thank you to our participants and the public alike for supporting event and making it such a success.
