If the prospect of sitting at home in Brisbane has you feeling bored already, then the good news is that there’s actually plenty of car shows on this weekend.
Unsurprisingly, it’s not just the revheads and auto enthusiasts that love the iconic vehicles of yesteryear. Iconic cars don’t only appeal to car lovers, but also attract those passionate about engineering, design, art and yes, history. Before cars were built for efficiency and speed, it was about the experience, style, exclusivity and ultimately, craftsmanship – making them timeless, works of art.
While the appeal of classic cars vary depending on who you talk to, it’s no secret that all car enthusiasts all speak the same language, and all share the same passion for the vehicles of a bygone era. Whether it’s American muscle cars, Holden lovers or even hot rodding fans, to get a grasp on just how rewarding being involved in this community can be, all you need to do is stop by one of the many car shows on this weekend in the Greater Brisbane region.
