The Armidale Motor Show is back! And for a great cause

The Armidale Motor Show is back for 2024


The New England area of NSW has long been a hot bed of hot car activity. Armidale, Glen Innes, Uralla, Tenterfield and many more towns in the region have produced some Australia’s most-creative car builders, including Paul Cundy, the Townsend family, Snapper Macey and the Hillier brothers.

For many years, the Armidale Motor Show has been one of the biggest events in the region, before running out of puff a few years ago – as large volunteer-run events are wont to do.

Now, the Armidale Motor Show is back for 2024, in aid of a great cause. “We are bringing the show back to help out locals Damien & Heidi Hutton,” says Troy Hamel. “Their nine-year old son Tyson has MNGIE (Mitochondrial neurogastrointestinal encephalopathy) which is a super-rare disease. They will need to be in Sydney for up to 12 months for treatment, so we want to support them as much as we can.”

We’ll have more info on the show as the time gets closer, but rest assured there will be a stack of cool rides to ogle. We’d love to see Nev’s Summernats-stopping HK Monaro get another airing or maybe the new build that Troy Hillier is set to reveal at MotorEx. How knows? Maybe Paul Cundy will give his famous Commodore a bit of a birthday for the occasion.

Whatever happens, we’ll be there with bells on.
