AUTO ONE KAWANA CAR MEETS A
True car enthusiasts know how hard it is to find a venue where like-minded people can bring their cars and have an
open forum with discussions about improvements, modifications and classic details without being branded a hoon.
Auto One Kawana in Western Australia has not only created an
event where these discussions occur, but has gone one better and
made the event family-friendly.
The Auto One Kawana Waters car park is filled every third Friday
evening with prized vehicles and the people who love to work on them.
This event is gaining overwhelming support mainly because the
organisers and attendees actively discourage any actions that are
perceived to be hooning and dangerous, such as drifting or burn outs.
The evening is advertised, analysed and generally discussed on
the Facebook site where photos are shared and a passion for all types
of beautiful cars is encouraged.
If you are interested in hot rods, muscle cars or customising your
ride then it is definitely worth joining the Auto One Kawana Facebook
page and dropping in on one of the car meets.
Auto One Kawana, located on the corner of Kawana Way and
Capital Place, provides a free sausage sizzle for everyone who attends
and drinks are available for purchase.
For more information on the car meets email
email@example.com or call 07 5314 3999.
