    Torquay Motor Show - Rotary Club of Torquay - November 1st

    Another one for the Melbourne, Australia people.. I am working on getting some guys from rollaclub, toymods and tcca to come along to this one.

    Apparently had 150 cars last year and it sounds like a good day.

    November 1st is the Sunday before Melbourne Cup.

    There is an entry form for it and a cost of $5 to enter. If you want the form PM me with your email address

    Dear Motor Enthusiast,

    On behalf of the Rotary Club of Torquay I would like to report on the Torquay Motor Show held in November last year. It was this Club’s first Motor Show and by all accounts was very successful with car owners and their treasured vehicles coming from far and wide.

    There were over 150 vehicles on display and each and every one of them contributed to the success and shine of the event.

    This year, on Sunday 1st November, the Sunday before Melbourne Cup Day, the Torquay Rotary Club will again be running the event. We would be delighted if you would drive on down the coast road to help us show off your vehicle.

    The event will be organised in a similar fashion to last year, but with improvements to layout and the entry process with extra events and displays to add the celebratory atmosphere to the day.

    If you would like to enter this year’s show it would be appreciated if you could firstly leave a message on the Club’s mobile phone number or email Greg (address below), and secondly completing the attached Entry Form and bringing it with you on the day.

    The entry fee will remain modest at $5.00 per contestant and spectators. There will be Devonshire teas provided by our local Relay For Life team and a variety of delicious food and refreshments available at any of the nearby cafe’s.

    Members of the Torquay Rotary Club look forward to meeting you and seeing your unique vehicle. Please feel free to email or telephone the Club with any questions or suggestions about the day.

    Yours in Rotary

    Not much Japanese representation at this show unfortunately..

    One of our club members had his Crown on show and that was it for old school japanese cars (though technically it was built in Australia as a fully CKD car by AMI)

    though hidden amongst all the American chrome and Aussie classics was a Nissan 300ZX convertible (which I didn't get a picture of),

    a Daihatsu Copen convertible

    and an R31 Nissan Skyline GTS which was a local special built by Nissan Australia's performance arm called SVD (Special Vehicles Division)

    The R31 is owned by a bloke in Ballarat. His car has won his class at our concnourse before and was in (i think ) Unique Cars with a substantial article.

    Great pics.

    I was suprised by the turnout, wasnt really sure what to expect but it was pretty big after all, but nothing you havent really seen before. More French cars than Japanese there too, which is a bit odd.

    I was hoping to catch up with you guys but when I got round to the crown you must have been elsewhere.


    I think my favourite car was the purple charger. It's such a good colour for a car like that.

    Thanks for the comments

    TristanH we will try and have a bigger presence next year! You should keep an eye out for the rollaclub.com Australia day long weekend camping cruise as it runs through town. About 20-30 guys in corollas etc go for a run down the GOR and camp some where down there too.

    GoBabyGo you will have to get some of your Datto friends down there next year too!
