The Goodfellas Hot Rod Club will host its annual picnic in Yanchep National Park on November 17, with a convoy of pre-1978 hot rods, custom and American muscle cars arriving mid-morning.

Event co-ordinator Jeff Hitchins said they expected about 300 to 350 cars at the event, with the drivers meeting at Kingsway Shopping Centre at 9.30am before they take a leisurely drive north.

‘It’s a pretty big day ” it’s always a good day,’ Mr Hitchins said, adding that he would be bringing his 1930 Ford Coupe to park overlooking Loch McNess.

Mr Hitchins said it was usually one of the biggest spectator events at the national park. There will also be several stalls selling their wares, a woodturning demonstration, bouncy castle, roving magician and snake handler. Hot rod owners pay to be part of the convoy, and spectators pay national park entry fees
