THERE won't be a Toyota, Holden or Nissan within cooee when some of the coast's most avid car buffs gather this morning.

The Mid North Coast Hot Rod Club is holding its 12th annual WinteRun and up to 100 revved up beauties are expected to be on show.

Club secretary Andy Douglas said hot rodders from Sydney, Brisbane and Tamworth will bring their much beloved machines.

"Technically a hot rod is a pre-1948 American-based vehicle, which inevitably has been modified but remains street legal," Andy said.

"The owners are mainly male and aged from 18 to 80 and they are far from shy when it comes to doing up their cars.

"Locally we have 25 members in our club who live between Valla and Iluka. It really is a great hobby and lifestyle."

The WinteRun hot rodders will be on show outside Repco Auto Parts until noon.
