WELCOME: The Classics On Rainbow Car Show (March 17) philosophy is ‘‘if it has wheels it’s welcome’’.

The success of the Classics On Rainbow Car Show means it has outgrown its original venue and so it's moving - to the spacious and central Waimate North Show Grounds.

This year more than 300 cars and motor bikes are expected. They include vintage cars, classic cars, hotrods and sports cars.

The philosophy is "if it has wheels it's welcome".

Entry is $7 per car and driver or $20 for a carload.

This year a "massive marine and automotive car boot and swap meet" is being added to the show.

So bring along all your new or used or unwanted marine and automotive parts and accessories to sell. Seller sites are $20 for a car boot, ute or trailer. There is also a boats for sale area as well.


And this is the inaugural Ms. Classics on Rainbow pageant for the girls. Simply come dressed in the era of the vehicle you're displaying. For example if you're exhibiting a 1920s vehicle you might come dressed flapper style.

There are prizes so start planning your outfit now.

This year is the start of trade stands area, a great opportunity for businesses to present their products and services to the people of Northland. Sites start from $80.

Food and drinks will be available on the day, there is also a family fun area with bouncy castles and hotrod kart rides and live music.
