NEARLY 300 cool rods, classics and customs thundered into Brunswick Heads for the Back to Bruns Hot Rod Run last weekend.

Now in its fourth year, the three-day event attracts hundreds of hot-rodders from all over Australia and New Zealand keen to peek under the bonnets of high-performance cars.

Festivities culminated with Sunday's Show and Shine display, which saw all makes and models, ranging from a 1929 Ford Tudor to a 1972 Dodge Charger pack Banner Park.

A major event on the Australian Street Rod Federation calendar, the "Rod Run" invited Golden Globe winning actor Paul Lemat as this year's international guest.

"Paul starred in American Graffiti, the film that basically put hot rod culture on the map," said co-organiser Rod Brewer, who displayed his 1934 Ford.

Rod said Brunswick Heads was the perfect location as it was a laidback town "where everyone could park their cars safely". "We also chose Bruns because everything is in walking distance and everyone is so friendly," he said.

Organisers hope for even bigger things next year. "We'd like to block off Mullumbimbi St to make it safer for everyone," Rod said.
