    Classic Japan Car Show - November 20th 2011, Melbourne

    Hi all

    The Toyota Car Club of Australia (Victoria) is proud to announce the first annual Classic Japan Car Show in Melbourne.

    To be held on November 20th 2011, it will be a gathering of enthusiasts of all classic Japanese marques.

    Our venue will be Yarra Bend Park, Fairfield, Victoria and the show will be open to entrants from 8am to 9am, and then members of the public from 9am-1pm. Enter the venue via Yarra Bend Park Rd from Heidelberg Rd, and watch out for the speed humps.

    Entry will be via a gold coin donation with proceeds going to Beyond Blue.

    We are limited to 80 cars on display this year, so we are looking for a really good cross section of original and modified Japanese classics, 25 years and older.

    There will be a sausage sizzle on the day and a coffee van for those looking for a caffeine hit.

    We are hoping that this becomes an annual event and grows to be a real celebration of our favourite cars. Its a grass venue so it can be a relaxed family affair if you are so inclined.

    If you have any questions, please ask away, other wise we look forward to seeing you on the day.

    Thanks go to Parks Victoria for their support of the event.

    Please represent car enthusiasts in the best manner possible by refraining from all anti-social "hoon" behaviour both in the venue and in the area around it.

    I'll roll past and see if you have room for my DR30.

    I reckon you could be swamped.

    Thanks for all of your efforts with getting this kind of thing off the ground.

    Regards,

    Mike.

    I am pretty sure we are going to be swamped too.

    I just hope that doesn't p*ss people off and they understand that this year is a "suck it and see" year to see what kind of reaction we are going to get.

    We struggled to get a venue without paying lots of $$ and the one we had pulled out at the last minute, so we are hoping this one works ok for 2011, before we go to something bigger and better in 2012.

    Time will tell!

    Hey Ad,

    It must be feast or famine...... .there's a Japanese Car Day in Feb 2012 at Dandy Showgrounds, sponsored by Shannons. So, my theory is they heard about yours and put one together for Vic knowing how much needed it is! :wink: I just emailed you the flyer.

    Thanks for sending it on

    Even some of the wording suggests ours was on the radar...

    "ground can hold hundreds of cars"

    "long time between drinks for a Japanese Car show with major sponsorship"

    Ah well.. about time regardless.. shame its only two weeks after Hanging Rock!

    We will just have to make sure ours is a family friendly relaxed picnic style event that people want to keep coming back to.

    is a shame they didn't extract a digit or 8 when it was first proposed bloody years ago too....
    and then the TCCA event is set so they do their's for just a few months after and rip it off to boot.... :roll:
