This event promises to be all about the historic and very Australian rivalry of Ford vs Holden, while showcasing some of the best and possibly worst from each camp. Crazee T's Events will be dividing Wanneroo Showgrounds into two (2) sections, both having food, trade stalls and kids activities, with a central stage for family friendly Australian entertainment. Participants will be strongly encouraged to “wear their colours with pride”, and join in on the games and activities throughout the day.

Choose a side ... are you Holden or Ford?

"As the owner of a 1962 EJ Holden Special Sedan and a 1967 HR Holden Premier Stationwagon, I am simply one of so many car enthusiasts who will continue to shine their Holden and Ford badges for generations to come. It is the Aussie way ... to hold true to the Lion or the Blue Oval. The Crazee T’s “End of Dayz” event will be a celebration of the history, rivalry and growth of Holden and Ford as the leaders and veterans of the Motor Industry here in Australia. It will be a day filled with memories, competition, rivalry and playful banter between those who own them, drive them, restore them and race them. " ~Toni Brown
