    • Cruise route will take approximately an hour so we’ll be at Welland in time for dinner at one of the many food outlets that will be open there, and a chin-wag
  • The weekend will culminate on Sunday 25th February with the All Chrysler Day show and shine under the roof of the former Chrysler Australia Main Assembly Building at the Tonsley Innovation District. All Chrysler and Chrysler related products and including vintage, classic and modern, in any condition, are welcome to attend and display on the day.
    • This year’s show will be very different in many ways – it is to be an open day rather than a traditional car show
    • Entry will be free for vehicles, spectators and swap sites.
    • There will be NO TROPHIES OR JUDGING at this year’s event – that’s one reason why it’s FREE!
    • Vehicle entries prior to the day won’t be required, however we will be asking entrants to register to give us some idea of numbers
    • There is a limit on the number of vehicles that can be parked under the MAB roof, so entry to the venue will be on a first-come, best-dressed basis
    • CoastFM will be broadcasting live on the day.
    • Live Bands – Crossroads and The Groove
