    Default Tanunda GM day?

    Does anybody know what is happening with this? Have heard that the council has stopped it or something? I thought it was going to be on today but my Missus reckons there are no signs or anything up around the place ( I just got home to SA from work interstate).

    Just heard GM day will be back on in 2017
    It will be 2nd of April
    I believe there will be a location change and it will be in Gawler this year rather than Tanunda

    I hope so, it's usually a good day. Will be a pity if they have it at Gawler rather than Tanunda but still better than not at all!

    Default Tanunda GM day?

    So GM day is different to Monaro Car Show? That was brilliant a couple of years back.

    Was / is GM day a regular event?

    The local council doesn't want to have cars on their sporting ovals so it was necessary to find a new location
    And yes it was a regular event that typically had about 300 entrants

    I think the Monaro show you are talking about was the Monaro Nationals, they have it at a different location every year I believe. I was lucky enough to catch it while I was over in WA for work a few years back and then again when it was at home last year. Was awesome to see them fly up the Collingrove Hillclimb track on the Sunday!

    In my opinion the car shows have been the best things that have been held on the Tanunda oval. I just think it's a shame to lose another great event from the Barossa while we have to deal with more stuff like the Tour Down Under and Gourmet Weekend shutting down our whole towns! At least we still have the street party, for now.

    Do you mean the Barossa Vintage Festival?

    Nah, was talking about the one in Tanunda where they block the main street off and it's lined with hotrods and muscle cars. There is usually a band on in front of the pub later on. Can't remember what it's called or who organises it. I have missed the last couple years due to work but the Missus still loves going for a look.

    That would be great! Hopefully late October or I will miss it anyway ( damn this pesky work thing that I need to earn a living!).

    Is this show going to be on in 2019? I am planning a trip to SA over Easter 2019. Might plan to take in this show as well.

    So many councils are going this way now. Don't want cars parked on their precious grass!!!

    In the end the Gawler council was most helpful in providing an alternate location for the show
    It ended up as a really good day with plenty of great cars coming out
    There were 250 cars entered so it was another great turnout for this show
