MEDIA RELEASE: Car Show to be postponed

Tuesday 17th March - 2020

Unfortunately I must inform everyone that this year's Premier event in the Sutherland Shire the 6th Annual Pre-WWII Vintage Car Show has been postponed due to the current COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Pandemic.

As Event Founder and Custodian of this wonderful community event I feel absolutely devastated to relay this unfortunate news to everyone.

Already so many months work has gone into organising this unique event not only by myself but also our many volunteers and the Sylvanvale Foundation personnel that would have delivered the 'Biggest & Best' Vintage Car Show in our six short years to raise funds to support people with disabilities to reach their potential.





The decision was taken completely out of my hands by Australian Government advice, Sutherland Shire Council and the NSW Department of Health.

We feel strongly that our primary responsibility is to protect the people we support who are at a higher risk of contracting COVID-19, as well as the public, our exhibitors and volunteers.

We sincerely apologise for the inconvenience.

As parting words, please stay tuned to our social media, including our Facebook Page as soon as we work out the future of this event we will let you know all the details ASAP.

Looking forward to catching up with everyone down the track.

Yours sincerely

Ken Warburton
Event Founder and Custodian

Friday promotions in the Cronulla Mall

Friday 13th March - 2020

Today folks, we took our Event Founder, Ken Warburton's cars into the Cronulla mall for a promotional day for our upcoming Car Show.


The static display outside the old Cronulla Post Office, gave Autumn shoppers in The Mall  a rare chance to have a close look at a couple of vintage vehicles.

With just three weeks left to run to our Car Show, we will be in the Cronulla Mall every Friday to promote our Show scheduled for Sunday 5th April, 2020.

The rare Ford AA Truck truck is quite an historic vehicle as it helped construct the Hoover Dam in the US, that sits on the Colorado River on the State Line between Arizona and Nevada.

The Dam was built during the Great Depression and was opened by US President Franklin D Roosevelt in 1936.

Both cars, now 90-years old, will on display at our Show on Sunday 5th April, 2020.
