THOUSANDS of people came out to Alice Springs last night to watch some of the toughest cars in Australia cruise the streets for the Red Centre Nats parade. With around 600 cars entered in the 'Nats this year, the cruise was enormous - when the front cars returned from the route, there was still a whole paddock of cars waiting to leave! 

A lot of cool local stuff came out of the woodwork too. Check out this insane Austin 1800 rat rod the guys from the Charles Darwin University cooked up!
