Even the title of this weekend’s Cars and Coffee is enough to get many people revving their engines.

Now in its fourth year, the event will bring together classic cars, motorcycles, tractors and engines with a car boot sale for the growing annual event.

Organiser Gordon Walmsley said he and his family had worked with the various clubs around town to get the best possible array for the show.

“We used to go to various events around the State but a lot of them have closed so we thought ‘Why don’t we run our own?’,” he said.

“We are trying to incorporate a swap-meet set-up because there is just nothing like that around.

“The event is for the community to come along and enjoy and for anyone who wants to buy themselves anything industrial or automotive or collectable.

“New to the show is a museum with engines and Ferguson implements for everyone to check out.”

A special big Blackstone stationary engine joins the spectacular array of automobiles and machinery this year.

Entry is a gold coin and food and drinks will be available at the property. Stallholders and anyone who wants to show or sell a car is welcome to do so at the event and can phone 0439 097 515 or 0437 415 354 for inquiries.

Cars and Coffee takes place on Saturday at 278 Robinson Road, Albany, between 9am and 3pm.
