There’s noth­ing small about Min­ishow 2008

Herald Sun - Motoring - - First Drive -

IT’S be­ing billed as the big­gest lit­tle car show of the year, with a dis­play of Minis, Mokes and de­riv­a­tives rang­ing from 1959 to 2008.

Min­ishow 2008 rolls into the Melbourne Show­grounds on Sun­day and with a show ’n’ shine and con­cours, trade stands, sound-off and a peo­ple’s choice award.

The show was last held in 2004 and this year’s event is for fam­i­lies, so the kids are catered for with a jump­ing caste, free show­bags and face paint­ing.

‘‘We want to make it a show that the en­tire fam­ily can at­tend and en­joy,’’ Vic­to­rian Mini Club pres­i­dent James Hal­loway says.

It’s in that spirit that the judg­ing of the var­i­ous cat­e­gories will be based on clean­li­ness of pre­sen­ta­tion, no mat­ter what is be­ing pre­sented.

The gates open at the Pavil­lion Hoecker at 10am, with the event clos­ing at 4pm. For more de­tails, go to www.min­
