Spring Classic Car Events in Perth 2013

German Car Day Sunday 22 September 2013

Open to all cars of all German marques. Meet at Queens Garden car park on the corner of Pier Street and Nelson Crescent (near the WACA) by 9am for a 9.30am departure on a cruise to a secret destination. $10 entry per car with part proceeds going to "Wheels for Hope."

Update - 22 September 2013
Unseasonable storms and gale-force winds put the dampeners on the German Car Day but still some 80 cars attended. I took the Deek along to the meet up at the WACA but she was being a little temperamental so I opted not to take her on the drive out to Yanchep. There was a large contingent of Mercedes and Porsches on the drive.

The Auto-Union contingent - the DKW, Paul B's rotary engined NSU Ru80 and Richard G's NSU Prinz.

Day of the Volkswagen, 1st December 2013

The Shannons Day of the Volkswagen is the biggest show of the year in the WA Volkswagen Calendar. Each year it is held on the first Sunday in December - for 2013 that is the 1st December. We thank Shannons Insurance for their continued support and sponsorship of this event for over 10 years now.

The Shannons Day of the Volkswagen is open to both members and the public, to show their VW's or to come along and have a look. It is not restricted to VW branded vehicles, as all vehicles belonging to the VW family (Karmann Ghia, Audi, and Skoda to name a few) are welcome!

The Shannons Day of the Volkswagen has moved to Taylor Reserve (adjacent to McCallum Park). A shorter show will see gates open from 8:30am to 10:00am for entry with the show running from 10:00am to approx. 2.00pm on the day. Trophy presentations commence 1:00pm, at the conclusion of which gates will re-open for exiting. Gates locked for the safety of all patrons at the show.

Vehicle entry is $10, while the public can come have a look for free. There will be a Show and Shine, a new vehicle display, a swap meet and a show bag for the first 100 cars through the gate. The day will include kids activities and of course refreshments - a coffee van, sausage sizzle, and ice cream van. So come along and help make the Shannons Day of the Volkswagen in WA the best in the country!
