On Sunday 29 January 2017, Strathalbyn Auto Collectors Club Inc. are hosting the Cars of Australia Show at Strathalbyn Oval Complex.
The idea for a ‘Cars of Australia Show’ came from the then Club President Glyn Morris who thought this an ideal way to contribute to the town and community of Strathalbyn and also promote the relatively new Club, and Australia Day seemed like an appropriate day for the event. This improved third time will be a quality event.
There are many motoring events held in South Australia throughout the year but none focused on just Australian manufactured or assembled cars. Some preliminary research revealed a list of vehicles which Strathalbyn Auto Collectors Club Inc. are sure will surprise a lot of people. Apart from the well known makes like Holden, Ford, Chrysler and others there are some makes that many people will not realise were manufactured or assembled here, if not the complete range of vehicles but some models. The Event focus is on cars manufactured, built or assembled in Australia and Street or modified cars. Foreign cars are also welcome to attend.
‘Cars of Australia Show’ is not only a celebration of Australian Motoring but also of Australia. The committee is working toward an Australian theme for the day in regard to food, entertainment and activities.
Additional attractions planned for the day so far:
- Over 2000 model cars on display and for sale.
- Multiple food and drink stalls this time.
- Free Mini train to take people around the grounds.
- Kids bouncy castle and Side Show’s.
- Full bar facilities.
- “Walk of Knowledge” for under 18 year olds.
No pre-entry required.
- Pay on the day $15 per vehicle (kids free)
- Public Walk-in $5 (Under 14 free)
- Motorbikes $5
Gates open to the public 10am – 4:30pm
Gates open for car entries 8am
The drive through the Adelaide Hills as well as the many cafes, bakeries, antique shops and other attractions makes Strathalbyn a highly desirable and frequented destination for many motoring enthusiasts on a fine summer’s weekend.
