2018 Rolls Royce Display Day

The Rolls Royce Owners Club run an annual display/picnic day at Historic Linnwood House. I’ve been a couple of times before and it is always a nice informal day. In some ways it is like a mini all British day. The highlight is obviously the Rolls Royce and Bentley cars. They also invite guest marques […]

Auto Brunch St Ives November 2018

There has been a cars and coffee event not far from me since 2015. I’ve not had a chance to visit until last weekend. It is called Auto Brunch and is run by the North Shore Sporting Car Club. It’s held on the first Sunday of the month at the St Ives show ground. I […]

2018 Sydney German Auto-Fest

In the space of about ten years, the Sydney German Auto-fest has grown from a couple of cars in a small Canada Bay carpark to one of the biggest car shows on the calendar.

I attended that first show, unfortunately I did not take any photos. What a contrast to the 2018 show. This was […]

2018 British Car Show, Sydney

The 2018 British Car show was held on Sunday at the Kings School. This is probably the best car show of the year in Sydney. As usual all the British marques were there. Also as usual was the lovely display of cars. Overall it was a great day with excellent weather and interesting cars to […]

2018 Shannons Eastern Creek Car Show

The Shannons Eastern Creek car show is probably the largest show in NSW each year. It is notable for its variety. Generally the cars on display are great examples of everyday models that are now rarely seen on the roads. When was the last time you saw a Morris Minor, Ford Model A or Leyland […]

2018 Concours d’Elegance of America

I have not been back in Detroit since 2011 when I moved away after four years. As luck would have it, my first visit after seven years coincided with the date of the Concours d’Elegance of America. I only discovered this event in my last full year living in metro Detroit, and I was blown […]

2018 French Car Show Sydney

My car show season normally kicks off with the French car show. The show is timed for Bastille day, so always occurs mid July. It was a lovely sunny day for the 2018 French Car Show, so the turnout was great. This was in contrast to 2016 (the last one I attended) where poor weather […]

2018 CARnivale

Adding overzealous private security guards rarely enhances an event and the 2018 CARnivale was no exception. This event used to be held in the city and was relocated to Parramatta Park a few years ago. It is now much smaller and the cars are squeezed into a small area so unnecessary security barriers can be […]

2017 Rolls Royce Concours

The 2017 Rolls Royce Concours was held at historic Linnwood House, Western Sydney. As usual, they had a number of guest clubs including the Antique and Classic Car Club, Rover, Alvis, Wolseley, Jaguar, Range Rover etc. For some reason the Rover display was very small – perhaps they had another event running at the same […]

2017 ACT German Car Show

This weekend I was down in Canberra. Since the 2017 ACT German Car Show was on, I stopped by. Unfortunately, I was only able to stay for 10 minutes as I had assumed it was held in the regular location near the national library. Turns out it had moved to Pialligo Estate, near the Airport. […]
