WA 2017 Show Report

2017 – Sunday, December 3rd 

A tremendous array of cars greeted visitors to the 2017 show. While the temperature was high, cloud cover meant we didn’t have sun baking us. An excellent crowd attended and admired the 150 wonderful cars on show.

Thanks to everyone for their support – Exhibitors, traders and visitors as well as the teams of volunteers who’ve helped set up and the Town of Cottesloe for the wonderful venue. The result was a unique event which Western Australians can be proud of.
