Cooly Rocks on and on and on…..

I just had to show you more of “Cooly Rocks On”, so many cars, so many interesting people. Fashion, fun and dancing in the streets on a sunny winters day in the border town of Coolangatta. Get your 50’s gear out of the bottom drawer and take a nostalgic trip with me back to that great era of rock-n-roll.

I wonder how long it took to grow this long…

It is a rev heads paradise with thousands of cars, hot rods, custom cars and classic vehicles.

Just look at these…

The well maintained, polished and immaculate VW on the left. Then you have the well used. The VW icon of the 50’s beach culture.

Complete with surf board and liquid refreshment.

What can I say about this one? It certainly needs some TLC…

I found this lovely gypsy style caravan and fell in love with it…

This little girl loves this small version. She probably would like it for her dolls...

Look at the crowds in the pub and a small boy drools over this beauty.

The police are there to keep an eye on things, but it is a happy crowd and no trouble.

  7. What a cool and colorful event, Pauline. I love all those old cars, the old and rusted, and the new and shiny. I daresay the dreadlocks are not from the 50s! I bet you had a fun time photographing all those fabulous cars and wildly dressed people. A photographer’s heaven. 🙂
