A famous car show is making a return to Wagga after a three year break, all in the name of one special Wagga girl. 

If a love of all things cars wasn’t enough to bring back the classic event, Mia Stewart certainly is. 

The Stewart family are in the process of raising $300,000 to get Mia, who suffers from congenital femoral deficiency (CFD), to America for treatment. 

Riverina Monaro and Holden Club member Tony Kelly said if the event goes well, the club plans to claim the third week of October every year. 

With all types of cars from vintage to modern, Mr Kelly said Wagga’s Classic Car Show and Shine will be put back on the map. 

“We wanted to focus on a local charity rather than a big one and support someone in our own area,” Mr Kelly said. 

Cars will be arriving from 7.30am on October 15, with festivities opening up to the public at 9.30am at the Murrumbidgee Turf Club. 

A vehicle show entry price is $20, pubic entry is $5 and children under 16 years old are free. Motorbikes are also welcome.
