The annual Rum City Hardtop Rumble roared into action over the Queen’s Birthday weekend in October, with over 40 Falcon coupe lovers participating in a weekend of outings behind the wheels of their Falcons and Landaus.

The club kicked proceedings off at the Bundaberg Rum Distillery, followed by a trip to the Hosking Private Car Collection and Tinaberries & Macadamias Australia.

Sunday’s show ‘n’ shine was held at the Bargara Golf Club. The picturesque beach made for a stunning backdrop, attracting a large number of punters over the course of the show with. The public were also offered the chance to cast their vote for the People’s Choice award and their favourite number plate.

After the show ‘n’ shine was run and done, entrants went for a cruise to the Bundaberg Port for a fun group photo, followed by a trip to Cedars Bridge for the club’s iconic photo. A yearly tradition, all the hardtops merge onto the bridge for a great spectacle.
