Boys show off their toys

IT was a rev-head's heaven at Kev Knight's place at the weekend.

Kev's revved up for event

The Golden Square resident's driveway was bumper to bumper with superbly polished vintage vehicles for Kev's Hot Rod Breakfast.

There was a 1935 Ford Coupe, a 1935 Chevy Sedan and a 1954 F100 just to name a few.

Mr Knight founded Kev's Hot Rod breakfast in 2005.

"Many years ago we were members of car clubs and then everyone went their separate ways when they got married," he said.

"Then I shifted back to Bendigo from Melbourne 20-odd years ago.

"I settled up here so I got a few people together.

"They said, 'Why don't you do something about it?', so I did.

"That's how it all got started."

Mr Knight even had stickers made up for the hot rod enthusiasts.

"My son's made little stickers for the car, he's a sign writer, so everyone who comes along has one of those," he said.

Kev's Hot Rod Breakfast members meet once a month in Bendigo.

"The last Saturday of each month we have a breakfast and it's Kev's Hot Rod Breakfast,"  Mr Knight said.

"We usually have it at the cafe up in View Street but he's shut this month.

"So every year we have it at home here on the last Saturday of every month."

About 40 people visited Mr Knight's home on Saturday for the final Kev's Hot Rod Breakfast for 2013.

"They were from all over - Geelong, Chewton, Keilor - and, of course, Bendigo," Mr Knight said.

"It was great.

"It's just snowballed.

“We’re not an official club, we’re just blokes with the same interest.

"We’ve known each other most of our lives."

Wayne Ryan from Geelong said he attended the breakfast two or three times a year.

"I've got a 1932 Ford," he said.
