7:00 AM - 5:00 PM

The Killer Rides Live show will be held August 11th 2018 at the Moss Vale Show Grounds in the picturesque NSW Southern Highlands.

Killer Rides Live was previously an indoor event which limited how many cars we could accept so we certainly don't have that issue anymore with the switch to an outdoor custom car festival. This will be a full-tilt motoring extravaganza featuring a huge show and shine, grass driving events, cruise the venue sessions, Club games, kids rides, a dual drive-in night on the grounds on Saturday night, a sound-off and much more.

The whole ideal around Killer Rides Live is to have fun with cars. So we're making this a non-alcohol, family friendly event. We want everyone to come along and have a good time. Why not come and have a High-Performance, Highland Fling? Info Paul Beck 0432 795 336.

2018 Concours d'Lemons Down Under, SA

Elder Park, Adelaide CBD

10:00 AM - 3:00 PM

It's the world's worst car show, or more correctly a show of the world's worst cars, and despite all efforts, it’s slipped past our border security and immigration controls, and is heading to Adelaide, South Australia for a second time in 2018!

This much talked about event (not in a good way), is back bigger and better, and in a new city centre location.

Concours d’Lemons, certainly lives up to its slogan of “celebrating the oddball, mundane and truly awful of the automotive world”, and even goes so far as to thumb its nose at conventional shows by openly encouraging the bribing of its celebrity judges.

Open to vehicles of all types, the Adelaide public will be subjected to some zany examples of questionable engineering and roadworthiness, as owners fall all over each other to win $2 recycled trophies in categories such as “Needlessly Complex Italian”, “Rueful Britannia”, and “Der Self-SatisfiedKrauttenWagen” to name but a few.

The low-point of the day, will be the public humiliation of the winner of the “Worst of Show” award, presented by our zany host, American journo, Alan Galbraith!

So why not kick back for a yack, enjoying a coffee or a frothie and most of all spend a weekend spent with like minded old skoolers across a range of generations but all sharing a common theme and interest of everything oldskool.

Yep kool old vehicles, your pride and joy, be it hot rods, rat rods, bikes, longroofs, and caravans. If its kool and oldskool - bring it! The only expectation for the weekend is to kick back, relax and have a kool old time.
