IT WASN'T just the sun that shone on Easter Sunday.

More than 30 classic cars were on display at the weekend at the Kern Arcade car park markets.

Car enthusiasts from Mackay, Emerald, Biloela, Maryborough and even Brisbane brought their vehicles to the annual Chrysler Cruizin Rockhampton Show and Shine, which has been running for almost 20 years.

From a Chrysler 1968 VE Valiant to a 1970 Dodge Challenger RT440, the cars were an impressive sight to those who checked out the show.

Member of the club, Rachel Azzopardi, said the day was a great success.

"It's just a great opportunity to get together and share our love of cars," she said.

"We've formed great friendships with everyone.

"It also gives the public a chance to come and have a look."

Ms Azzopardi said most of the vehicles had been restored by their owners.

The weekend's events also involved drag races at the Benaraby Raceway and a street cruise on Saturday.

Keep an eye out for more photos of the cars on display in The Morning Bulletin's Buzz page later this week.
