Dannevirke's Wheels with Attitude is growing in popularity every year and organisers are hoping more than 350 cars, bikes and caravans will be at the showgrounds on Sunday.

"We don't really know what's coming until the day, but we expect between 250 and 350 vehicles," Ken Mills of the Dannevirke Wheels Club said. "The day is a good excuse for people to get their classic, vintage or veteran vehicle out and enjoying soaking up the atmosphere and swapping stories."

All types of vehicles, machinery, vintage, classics, hot rods, motorcycles, trucks, buses, tractors, and anything else in between can turn up on the day and Mr Mills will have his 1925 Morris Cowley there, celebrating 91 years on the road.

There will be plenty for spectators to admire at the show too, with shiny chrome, dented body-work and cute retro caravans, all at the Dannevirke A&P Showgrounds.

To keep the wheels turning at the event, dedicated volunteers run and control the day.

Wheels with Attitude:

* Sunday, January 31.

* Dannevirke A&P Showgrounds, High St, 10am to 2pm.

* Exhibitors $2, swap meet stallholders $5, adults $2, children $1.

* For more info contact Ken Mills, 06 374 7620.
