About the Hot Rod and Custom Auto Expo

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.

At the core of every show are the grass roots guys and gals, those dedicated individuals who paw countless hours and cash into their pride and joy.

The Hot Rod and Custom Auto Expo is as much about home grown hot rods and street machines as it is elite level show cars.

It’s about the people in the car clubs and the community that love the hobby as much as they love their own vehicles.

The Hot Rod and Custom Auto Expo salutes Sydney’s car clubs and celebrates cool cars on all levels.
