One of the very few car shows to survive the whole Covid bunfight this year is the excellent Adelaide Auto Expo (Nov 20-21), run by local enthusiast Geof Tartoosie, and this year it again includes a barn-find auction in association with Unique Cars mag.

The FJ you see here is one of 10 cars being offered. And yes, we're a little surprised that there are still any old cars hidden away in sheds, but it seems there are if you know where to look. The auction happens Saturday afternoon.

As for the show, it starts on the Friday night at the Wayville Showgrounds, in the Jubilee Pavillion. Geof tells us there are usually around 40 traders in the pavillion along with around 230 cars.

Friday night is also when the big Aussie classic and muscle car cruise happens, which attracts about 120 vehicles. A similar number also turns up for the outdoor Saturday show 'n' shine.

Next highlight is the giant Saturday night Zippel Cruise, for American cars and hotrods. You can expect something in the order of 500 cars to that one!
