Show and Shine

11/09/2022 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm


EVENT: Show & Shine 2022

WHEN: Sunday 11th September 2022

WHERE: Como Park North, Alexandra Ave South Yarra (Enter from Alexandra Ave opposite Kanteen café)

TIME: 10am to 3pm, Display vehicle arrival time: 10am to 11am


DETAILS: The spectacular Motafrenz Show & Shine will once again be held in the central location of Melbourne in a splendid setting. Expect as usual a significant range of vehicles often spanning over 100 years.


The Show & Shine is a fully inclusive day for all vehicles of any age, marque, condition, configuration, colour and creed. Visitors are welcome to display with us or simply enjoy the day and meeting club members and their vehicles. It is always a very relaxing day for a picnic and sharing motoring knowledge and stories.


Themes are encouraged and are always a great way of adding to the fun. Think: picnic perfection, camper van, bush bashing, Priscilla or patina just as starting suggestions. Voting will once again be by those participating along with a committee’s choice award.


There will be four defined rows of vehicles by age and Motafrenz marshals will be on hand to help you register and position your display vehicle.



Row 1 – up to 1959. Vintage, veteran and post war vehicles and basically anything before 1960s styling.

Row 2 – 1960 to 1979. Typically chrome bumpers and plenty of colour.

Row 3 – 1980 to 1995. Typically classic plastic bumper > 25 years old.

Row 4 – 1996 to present. 



  • Favourite pre 1960 (first row)
  • Favourite 1960 to 1979 (second row)
  • Favourite 1980 to 1997 (third row)
  • Favourite Post 1998 (fourth row)
