The community is being urged to vote twice this weekend, once in the federal election, and then a second time in the People's Choice award at the Shannon's Motor Show.
The two day showcase, at the TRECC, is run by the Rotary Club of West Tamworth, with organiser Neville Evans guaranteeing that "you won't see a car here that you saw last year."
"Every year I attend motor shows all over the country and pick out cars that we want to see in Tamworth," he said.
"We have got cars coming from all over NSW, Victoria and Queensland, and have a range of everything from very old to very new and everything in between."
This year Jaguar is the feature make, with several iconic E-Type models on the floor, as well as the best of the old and new models among the 90 vehicles on display.
The oldest engine in the room will be a 1911 Ford Tourer that is certain to attract some attention, as will the 1918 Ruston Hornsby, and three huge Lincoln Continentals.
"We go to great pains to get a really good range of cars that have never been here before," Mr Evans said.
"There will also be a $50 fuel voucher given away every hour, as well as the legendary food and drinks served up by the Rotary club."
The weekend also includes a special dinner held on Saturday night at the TRECC, with this year's special guest Syd Howard AO certain to entertain the crowd with his tales of a life of pyrotechnics and race car driving.
Tickets to the dinner are $60, and entry to the car show is $10. Doors open at 9am Saturday and Sunday.
