'Cooly Rocks On' 2022


After the endless rainy weather and previous COVID cancellation, we were all holding our breaths that this Cooly Rocks On event would:

  1. eventuate;
  2. not be rained out; and
  3. be as successful or more so then previous events for our contingent of Healeys.

Fortunately, the sun shone, the breeze was light, nights were cold but days very pleasant and the crowd was massive. Cooly Rocks On has evolved into Australia's largest nostalgia festival. A signature event on Queensland's calendar, it brings music, fashion and most importantly our cars to the Gold Coast, and this was an extra special year.

Different groups within the AHOCQ contingent gathered at Neil and Judy Tregea's, Fay Bryant and Ray Hick's places and the 'Reflections on the Sea' apartments in Coolangatta and converged first thing Saturday morning to set up the display and then go on and enjoy the day. The day was full of lots of questions and interest in our cars, as well as Elvis competitions, mulitple music and dance stages with hundreds of dancers, a large number of market tents seeling lots of nostalgia related clothing, regalia, fashion, nic nacks, and car products, not to mention the inumerable food trucks!

While not the biggest car display weve seen in the years AHOCQ has been involved in the event, the mood was joyous, fun and super happy.
