Hot rods on show in Our Kids’ fundraiser
TONI Pacey grew up around cars.
Although she is the only female member of the Trojans Rod and Custom Club, she said none of the blokes look at her any differently.
"I've always hung out with the guys," she said.
In fact Toni, who has a PhD in genetics and teaches science at Ballina High during the week, was a founding member of the club that now has 25 members.
Her Dad, Ric Pacey, is the club president and together they rebuilt a 1940 Ford Pickup, which took four years.
"I'd drifted away from cars, but got back into it and I needed a car," Toni explained.
The club held their second annual show and shine at Tullera yesterday that attracted a huge array of hot rods and vintage cars from across the region.
All the shining chrome, rock 'n roll dancers and sizzling sausages were a fund- raiser for Our Kids.
