It is more than a little unlikely that Heather and Warrick Foster would find a wave to surf near their home in Temora.
Nevertheless, when they travel the country in their purple painted Ford pick-up, they always have a surfboard at the ready - just in case waves do happen.
"The surfboard was given to us, we're still looking for a wave," Mr Foster said.
"We hear there's one in Wagga somewhere," he joked.
It also pays homage to Mr Foster's youth spent on the Queensland Sunshine Coast, making him feel as though he is never too far from home.
While the board sits in the back, the front of the car is reserved for the car's 'mascot' - a purple winged bat with green bug-eyes.
"I spotted it in a shop somewhere and brought it back to the car," Mrs Foster said.
"We have a mascot for every car, it's most to do with colour. The kids love it, they'll come up and have their photo taken with it."
Together, the couple owns up to 15 Fords collected through the years. Most in various degrees of restoration.
On Sunday, they made the journey to Wagga to add their prized car to the 160 others filling out the Murrumbidgee Turf Club lawns.
Some had travelled from across the border in Victoria to be there for the day.
Organiser Joe Little was impressed with the turn out, as he too added his Holden Gemini to the line-up. The car has become something of an heirloom to him.
"My grandfather bought it new and now I've got it," he said.
"You see with a lot of blokes my age, they buy the car they had when they were young. They didn't know how much they'd be worth, say now a '68 or '69 Holden Monaro is now worth a mint, but back they you'd pick one up for $1000."
Usually held beyond the club's gates, this year, the dusty conditions meant the show'n'shine event was given permission to move.
The annual event, hosted by the Wagga Car Club, raised funds for Can Assist this year.
Its charitable nature is a primary reason for Mrs Foster's support of the event, having switched from horse racing to now car collecting.
"Most of the car people I've met are so genuine, such nice people. They've worked hard for what they have, it hasn't been handed to them," Mrs Foster said.
"We've thrown ourselves into it, because it's all fundraising, it a real reward to know we're helping."
