When it comes to country towns, you can take your chances as to the popularity of the event it is putting on and until you arrive you don’t know what you’re in for. Sometimes they disappoint you while others, such as the Lancefield swap meet and show n shine will blow you away with the size of the turn out. Lancefield, located in centralVictoriais one of those leafy towns you pass through admiring the picturesque setting as you do and could well mistake it for one that doesn’t take to automotive amusements such as swap meets and car shows but you would be sorely mistaken.
With over four hundred cars on display on the local football team, the Tigers’ oval and flanked by I don’t know how many swap meet sites, anyone visiting for the day could easily fill in their time picking through the wide assortment of automotive parts and great selection of bric-a-brac up for sale or peruse through the wide variety of automotive history, original and modified.
A live three piece band added to the atmosphere with their dulcet tones filling the air while the local club put on a decent barbeque feed for the hungry punters.
If you’re after parts for your project or a good excuse to drive through the country, you can’t go past this event as one of your regular calendar cruising dates!
Catch ya there and keep on crusin’

Hi Stretch, not sure if you have seen it but I responded to your complaint yesterday on the website. As I stated, this was my first time at the event and with so many cars on show, it’s not possible to show them all on the website as it slows down the upload too much to the point people get pissed off and leave. What car was yours and I’ll see if I took a pic of it? If so, I’ll add it to the article.
