The superheroes of the ACT are ditching their capes for cars, with a quality field forming for the fourth Classic Car Cruise for Camp Quality this Sunday, 8 September.
All car and motorbike lovers are welcome to join the drive from Black Mountain Tower to the foreshores of Lake Burley Griffin. However, the best place for the public to view the cars is at the Questacon carpark from 11 am until about 2 pm.
The event is open to classic vehicles 20 years or older, luxury exotic cars, company-branded cars, members of car clubs, unique vehicles and motorbikes.
Car fans can expect to see Lamborghinis, Ferraris, Maseratis, Mercedes and Mustangs, sitting alongside home-grown Toranas and Falcons. There will also be a replica of the Mad Max Interceptor, an Army Bushranger and a 100-year-old Murrays bus.
Organisers are also urging more businesses to get on board and enter their corporate cars.

As usual, the event is supported by the Superheroes ACT organisation which raises vital funds for Camp Quality as well as the programs the charity runs to support children and their families impacted by cancer.
Organisers Ivan Slavich and his wife Anna said the event will help at least 600 children diagnosed with cancer each year.
In previous years, the event has drawn more than 150 cars and raised more than $43,000. Mr Slavich said organisers are hoping to roar past that this year with about 200 cars and motorbikes on Sunday.
“It’s all about raising money for Camp Quality and supporting the hundreds of families in Canberra who are affected by cancer,” Mr Slavich said.
“Our target is to raise $50,000 so we’re always happy to hear from people who would like to support the event. Or you can make a tax-deductible donation on any of the entrants’ pages on the website.”
The top fundraisers will also take pole position to lead the cruise. Currently sitting in pole position is Tania Gulson and her car ‘Daisy’ with almost $7000 raised.
The day will begin at 9 am with all entered vehicles mustering at Black Mountain Tower. At 10 am, entrants will start their engines and cruise through Canberra on a designated route before finishing at Lake Burley Griffin (behind Questacon). The general public is invited to view classic and beautiful vehicles, enjoy a bite to eat, and get involved with the children’s activities.
If you have a vehicle that fits one of the four categories and the superpower to raise at least $25 for motorbikes or $50 for all other vehicles to support kids impacted by cancer, then it’s not too late to enter. All the details are on the Superheroes ACT Classic Cruise website.
