With an impressive collection of cars, much more than we anticipated (over 550 cars), three generations of my own family thoroughly enjoyed last years well organised show. Highlights for us; a 1980's 'Back to The Future' DeLorean DMC-12, and a Transformer 'Bumblebee' Camaro, and a beautiful sky blue Buik.

Gates open at 8:30am, with public entry at 10am. I'd recommend arriving early, as we found some cars left in the early hours of the afternoon, possibly due to Melbourne's high temperatures that day.

If you own a classic car, you can display your vehicle for $20, which includes a raffle ticket prize. Trophies are also up for grabs (trophy presentation will be approximately 1pm) and Fletch from Channel 31's "Classic Restos" will be filming an episode on the day.

I hope your event raises lots of money for your great cause.

But note that there is major road construction in Bondi Rd with sections of the road cut off and construction equipment parked. This means it will be a challenge to get all your cars in there via Scotch Pde and likely to be major traffic jam.

Please be respectful of local residents with your traffic control and parking arrangements. We residents need to be able to get in and out of our homes on that Sunday.

Have fun.

Do you know if there are kids' activities as well as the car show?
