ADELAIDE PARKLANDS COMES ALIVE WITH VINTAGE VEHICLES
More than 200 veteran and vintage cars, trucks and motorcycles will converge on the Adelaide Parklands for a public display on Sunday March 2017
Organised by The Vintage Sports Car Club of South Australia, the 10th annual Historic Motor Display Day is primarily for vehicles built before 1931 - but classic vehicles (post '30) are welcome.
This display will give the public a chance to see just how quickly vehicles evolved in the first few decades of the past century.
Everything from spindly, single-cylinder cars and bikes well over 100 years old capable of just 40kph to large eight-cylinder, luxury vehicles from the height of the "Roaring Twenties" more than capable of mixing it with modern traffic will be on display. This is not just a great opportunity to see the history of motoring but a chance to meet and talk with the custodians of these vehicles and marvel at the development, design and grandeur of these magnificent machines.
This is also an opportunity for younger people to see 'up close and personal' relics from an era of motoring very few living people truly remember thus helping to foster and preserve an interest in the historic vehicle movement.
The vehicles will be displayed in Edwards Park (Park 23) on the western side of Anzac Highway between the Keswick Bridge and West Terrace from 10:30am to 2:30pm.
There is no admission charge for entrants and spectators, and free parking has been arranged in a special section in the same grounds. Enter by travelling north on Anzac Highway.
There will be catering on-site.
