The Eller­slie show in­volves more than 75 car clubs and at­tracts 700– 800 clas­sic ex­hibitors as well as top pres­tige and per­for­mance new-car deal­er­ships and com­pa­nies in­volved in restora­tion in­dus­tries. The dis­play theme for the 43rd New Zealand Clas­sic Car Mag­a­zine Eller­slie In­ter­mar­que Concours and Clas­sic Car show is ‘Love Story’ — though how that will be in­ter­preted by clubs is, at this stage, any­one’s guess. For many, the at­trac­tion to this event is the Concours d’el­e­gance, in which New Zealand’s best restora­tions — and of­ten the coun­try’s most valu­able cars — vie for top hon­ours, along with teams en­tered by clubs, the win­ners host­ing the next event. There will also be The Pad­dock, a dis­play of clas­sics whose own­ers are not af­fil­i­ated with any club, and the Sur­vivors Class, a com­pe­ti­tion for un­re­stored ve­hi­cles with orig­i­nal bodywork, paint, and up­hol­stery.

Clubs can com­pete for the club tro­phy, but you don’t need to be a mem­ber of a club to par­tic­i­pate and com­pete for the Peo­ple’s Choice tro­phy. Good food and coffee will be avail­able, plus a va­ri­ety of stalls. The cost will be $5 per dis­play ve­hi­cle or a gold-coin do­na­tion to spec­tate.
