    Maling Road Autoclassico

    Sunday 19th August 2018


    Places are limited, so cars will be chosen to provide a wide
    range of models for display.

    BMWCCV Club Display Policy conditions apply.

    Please register your interest on the BMWCCV website.

    The Maling Road Traders Association in conjunction with the ‘Italian Auto Icon’s’ and a number of classic automotive car clubs will be conducting the 3rd running “Maling Road Autoclassico” from 10.00am – 3.00pm, Sunday 19th August 2018. Mailing Road has proven to be a great location for such an event, with the cars located ‘on the street’ in a village atmosphere, surrounded by period buildings.

    The inaugural event held in 2016 attracted in excess of 10,000 people from across Melbourne with some 100+ cars officially on display. In 2017 the event was increased to include the entire Maling Road shopping precinct, plus allocations in Bryson street and some nominated car parks resulting in some 150 classic and modern cars and bikes displayed. The public attendance surpassed 2016 results!

    In 2018 the event is being slightly increased again to cater for more vehicles and some special feature cars. This year’s event is estimated to surpass last year’s display of vintage and modern sports cars and motorbikes – with the help of some private collectors, car clubs and key sponsors participation.
