The Cranksters are invading Nagambie again this year and promise more fun and mayhem. It all kicks off with a registration party on the Friday night with Karaoke, then Saturday Gazza's Road Trip ending at a mystery destination.

Saturday night is a celebration of hundreds of years of Hill Billy history.

Free entertainment with Straight 8's, the longest playing rockabilly band in Australia.

Sunday is the giant Tuff Lift Chrome Bumper Show and Shine with more free entertainment supplied by top musicians.

To become an entrant, it will cost you 10 bucks only. Entries are now open and an entry form can be downloaded at


Time to get serious -


Guys and Gals, it's time to get ready for one of the best (perhaps the best) hot rod runs on the Australian calendar. 2015 Cranksters Cruise Nagambie will not let you down!! The Cranksters Rod and Kustom club have been working tirelessly to bring you yet another great weekend on the banks of Lake Nagambie.

Entry forms are now available to download from this website.

You can snail mail or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to get your entries in. Get cracking!! Date to remember are 18th,19th and 20th of September 2015. Couldn't be easier!! Paypal, cheque and credit card payments welcome!

The theme this year is celebrating 60 years of Rock and Roll. Nagambie Regatta Centre is the place to be. Sun Rising will be entertaining the crowds. These guys are great musicians and they relive the years of Sun Records including music from Elvis Presley and Jerry Lee Lewis. We can highly recommend the afternoon as one that will be of top entertainment. The concert will run hand in hand with the Tufflift Chrome Bumper Show and Shine where you and a car full of your mates can enter your prized automotive chrome bumpered vehicle and enter the show for the very low price of $10. Can't come for the weekend - no problems, make it a day trip.

Over 700 cars were on display last year. How many can we make it this year??

Review by Larry O'Toole

The Hot Rod Gods must have been smiling on all events held over the weekend of 14th and 15th September. What glorious weather we had for the Cranksters Run in Nagambie, Victoria. Then on the Monday the whole east coast was wet, wet, wet!

Getting back to the Cranksters Run. What a great weekend it was with the "Reliability" Run on Saturday and the huge show and shine on Sunday. Lots of fun was had on the run, with "Pirates" stopping all traffic on Kirwans Bridge to gather donations for Camp Quality. For lots of the "fun questions" an educated guess had to do, with some serious questions thrown in. There was certainly plenty to see on Sunday with the extra attendance of rodders just coming for the day, plus other invited special interest vehicles. There were plenty of food vendors (with reasonable prices), good music and good company to share.

At the charity auction held at the end of the day, many interesting items were sold to the enthusiastic crowd. The last item was a tandem parachute jump. Oggie suggested that if enough money was raised, Norm Hardinge could "Take the Plunge!" Well there were hands shooting up left right and centre, and soon a good sum had been raised. Norm was not impressed. So next year he is going to get even with Oggi. If for no other reason, it will be worth going to this run just to see what "pain" Norm will inflict on Oggi! Put it in your calendar now.
