If you are a purveyor of Aussie classic cars then the place to be come July 20 is Melbourneâ€™s Flemington Racecourse where the fourth annual Shannonâ€™s Classic Australian Car Show will be underway.
If you like a bit of muscle with your classic then you will most likely find the Muscle Car Coral the place to â€˜hang-outâ€™. Generally regarded as the highlight of the show, there will be a number of very special Falcons, Monaros, Toranas and Chargers on display.
The Muscle Cars will be amongst the expected 400-plus vehicles on display, alongside early cars, utes and vans alongside street rods, customs and the latest Holden, Ford, Mitsubishi and Toyota models.
The Showâ€™s organisers are also encouraging owners of rare Australian sports cars and specials, such as Elfins, Bolwells, Purvis Eureka, Nota and Ascort models, to take part in the Show as part of a special display.
Vehicles will be grouped by make and model, with a number of car clubs mounting special presentations of membersâ€™ cars and commercial vehicles.
Gates open at 9.30am for display cars, with entries on the day costing $12 per vehicle (two occupants).
Trophies are being presented for outstanding vehicles, while there will also be refreshments, a band and childrenâ€™s entertainment.
Spectators will be admitted from 10.30am at a cost of $12 for adults, with children under 14 free. All proceeds from the event are being returned to the classic motoring movement
