A THREE-wheeled car was what drove most of the excitement at the Border Christian College Autofest yesterday.
The KR200 Messerschmitt has been roaring through Albury since the 1960s and owner Shane Cogdell said it was special because of its story.
“It used to belong to my dad and people were approaching me all day and telling me stories about how they remember seeing it,” he said.
“My dad used to drive it to work and people today could describe my old man to a T.”
Mr Cogdell said the car was bought in Albury and was unique because it had no doors and the whole roof had to be lifted up for someone to enter.
He said he enjoyed car shows because of the reaction he received from the public.
“You should see the kids’ faces,” he said.
More than $1000 was raised for Carevan from an auction at the event, which attracted 3000 people.
Organiser Tony Smead said it was a great opportunity to support a charity and raise awareness about the school.
“I’m overwhelmed with the success the event had today especially considering it was our first one,” he said.
