Hunter Valley Police officers arrived to a car park at Hunter Valley Gardens Aqua Golf last weekend and unclipped their humour.
About 100 cars were in the car park on Sunday after a group drive from Glendale, which was organised by Hostile Empire – a car enthusiast Facebook group.
Group founder Craig Austin snapped this photo of a police vehicle after the officers arrived and popped the hood.
“We had the police show up at the event, park their car, open the bonnet and then ask where was their invite,” Mr Austin said.
“Everyone there loved it.”
Mr Austin posted the photo to the Hostile Empire page on Facebook and it received more than 1000 shares.
He said the post had helped pushed the group past 1500 members.
A chairty event, the CRUIZE 4 EPILEPSY, is being held on Sunday, March 31.
Starting at Kariong on the Central Coast, the drive will make its way to Raymond Terrace, stopping at the twin servo’s on the M1 Motorway and at Beresfield.
It is $10 per car to join and all funds raised will be donated to the Epilepsy Foundation.

Smooth moves, officers.
Jet ski tows stranded boat back to shore
Topics was on the water at Nelson Bay with Maritime NSW boating safety officers last weekend when they were conducting Operation Ride Safe.
The joint safety blitz with the Police Marine Area Command was focussed on the safe operation of personal watercraft in popular waterways along the NSW coast.
While Topics’ journey out of Nelson Bay marina did commence with a few random PWC inspections, two of the next things we came across were a little baffling.
Off Little beach, a jet ski cruised in front of the Maritime NSW vessel towing a boat. The difference in size made for a strange sight.
The boat owner yelled “flat battery” and was a little embarrassed being towed back into a jam-packed Little beach.
Next, two Marine Rescue boats passed on the port side, one towing the other.
Topics was beginning to question our voyage out onto the open water.
We were later reliably informed Marine Rescue was conducting a training exercise and had not suffered a breakdown.
