THE FEEL-GOOD AUTOMOTIVE HITS OF THE SUMMERER FROM ACROSS THE COUNTRY

OUR trip to Adelaide for Street Machine Drag Challenge came with a bonus the Adelaide Auto Expo was happening just before our event kicked off. Never ones to look a gift horse in the mouth (or any other orifice), we headed out to Wayville Showgrounds in the Turbo Taxi and set up shop on the Tuff Mounts stand.

Running over Friday and Saturday, the Expo featured some of the coolest local SA rides, as well as a decent helping of cars from interstate. While the main show area was indoors, there was also a killer display of cars outside, which climaxed with a Zippel Cruise on the Saturday night that attracted hundreds of cool American rides.
