On the last weekend in May, the Hot Rod and Custom Auto Expo will get underway at Rosehill Gardens Racecourse. The largest show of its kind in NSW, the prestigious event is a melting pot of Sydney’s car culture, combining stunning elite level hot rods and street machines with the underground lowrider and kustom kulture communities. Custom motorcycles, dozens of car clubs, a trade show, outdoor car corral and entertainment for all ages also feature throughout the entire weekend.
“The show is truly an automotive cultural experience,” said event host Andy Minas, a lifelong enthusiast of hot rodding. “There are so many facets to this event. The detailing on today’s elite level show cars is mind-blowing, but there’s an entire subculture of traditional rods and customs which are also incredible in both their creativity and craftsmanship. Nostalgia Lane has become one of the most popular attractions of the weekend and is unique to this show, people come from all over the country to experience it.”
The weekend is an opportunity to look and learn, with live demonstrations targeted to the average enthusiast, and dozens of suppliers to the auto restoration and hot rod lifestyle industry. Lowrider bicycles, a pinstriping art collective and other live events create a visual feast for all ages.
We welcome all entrants, artists, vendors and guests to participate in the Hot Rod and Custom Auto Expo!
