THE Kings Beach parking lot was overrun by rims and roof racks yesterday, as many of Nelson Mandela Bay’s car crews filed into the parking lot in the name of charity.

More than 100 gleaming cars gathered at the monthly park-off – during which car clubs meet to display the latest trends and show off their cars – organised by Mainstream Crew, to start its drive to collect winter woollies for the Pops (People Opposing Poverty in Society) Foundation.
