WITH grunt, power and a showcase of some of the greatest cars spanning decades, the recent Shepparton Motor Museum and Collectibles fifth birthday celebrations and fourth annual Motor Show were a huge success.

More than 400 car exhibitors, 80 to 100 motorbike exhibitors and approximately 2,000 people attended the motor show, which offered plenty to do including market stands, the purchase of merchandise, a barbeque, jumping castle for children, and a presentation done by Shannon Super Rig, who awarded 10 trophies to exhibitors.

Shepparton Motor Museum and Collectibles museum curator, Graeme Balfour said, “This year was an improvement on last year and numbers were up.

“We had people from Thagoona, Gippsland, Melbourne, Bendigo and Finley as well as locals.

“Many who attended stayed for the whole show, which was pleasing to see.

“There was a mixture of all vehicles, from veteran and vintage cars, a few old trucks and muscle cars right through to late model vehicles.

“From the feedback we have received we have a few things in place to make improvements on next year’s event. We are looking forward to next year’s event and have already had quite a lot of interest from clubs.”
