2024 Devonport Motor Show sponsors

Tireless work by the Rotary Club of Devonport North promises an exceptional event

The inaugural motor show, back when it was known as the Devonport Car Show and Swap Meet, was launched by the Rotary Club of Devonport North in 2007.

Although the motor show has evolved remarkably over the years since, one thing has never changed: the hard work and ongoing commitment of club members and volunteers to continuously enhance and expand it each year.

And this year’s show will be no different.

However, at the heart of this standout Tasmanian event is the club’s drive and dedication in raising significant funds destined for great things.

This means you can visit our motor show knowing all gate fees (less direct running costs) are distributed back into the community via worthy charities and selected National and International projects.

They say a picture is worth a thousand words.

Owned by Brian and Maureen Imlach, this 1934 Chevrolet four-door sedan underwent a meticulous 7-year build by Steve Aldrick and his team at Deluxe Rod Shop in Victoria.

Featuring a hand-fabricated chassis by Kustom Bitz, the car is powered by a 400hp LS2 6-litre supercharged engine paired with a 6-speed T56 Tremec gearbox.

With a Bentley Newmarket tan leather interior and boasting a custom brown metallic paint job by PPG, it’s easy to see why this remarkable Chev has earned multiple awards at prominent motor shows across Australia.

1929 Ford Model A Pickup

This car was built to be driven! Over the past three years, Dean has taken it to shows all over Australia for countless appreciative spectators.
