The Show and Shine Car Show

Come to Bacchus Marsh to see hot rods, vintage, classic Aussie muscle, American muscle, Holden’s, Fords, Harley Bikes and everything else that rolls on wheels. Great to have a car show near me. It’s been 2 years since we could hold this event, get your cruising buddies together and come and enjoy a great day. At last we can catch up with old friends, we look forward to seeing everyone coming back and making our event as spectacular as always. see you all on October 23rd. 

Sadly the rain has turned the park into a bit of mud-fest and has reduced the number of cars on site. Hopefully, they will consider moving the event to Feb is replace the other car show. Warmer weather, fewer events elsewhere should allow for a much bigger event, including music. However, it was good to see so many cars and people out despite the drizzle this year.

What to see:

Yep, they still use a Melways reference for those old enough to remember.

  • Hot Rods
  • Aussie & American Muscle Cars
  • Australian-made Holdens & Fords
  • Performance Vehicles
  • Rat Rods
  • Harleys

I was at there to photograph cars, people, and the rockabilly or pinup girls wanting to get photos with the cars. It would have been good to see more cars there. This time of year the weather is usually at its best before lunch was good to head down and enjoy a great day catching up with friends. I was looking forward to seeing everyone coming back and making the event as spectacular as always.

Other things to do.

A number of Cafes and Restaurants are open over the weekend. If anyone which to have a great shot of their car please reach out as there are some great locations in the area. The Avenue of Honour to Dog Trap road where some scenes from the original Mad Max were filmed.
