A Celebration of Heritage Motoring.
Promoted by the Yass Antique Motor Club and now in its 12th year, Classic Yass brings together all our favourite parts of ‘The Good Old Days’ in an idyllic setting in the centre of the Historic town of Yass.
Featuring cars from the early 1900’s through to the 70’s, fashion through the years, our favourite music from the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s plus the Billy Cart Derby, there is something for everyone to enjoy at this free event.
The Yass Antique Motor Club extends an invitation to all Classic Car Enthusiasts to make this a weekend away in the wonderful Yass Valley.
Entry is available for all original and period modified vehicles built before 1980. Historic racing cars, motor cycles and commercials are also invited, as well as ‘Old School’ Hotrods.
The event committee is working with the Yass Valley Council, local business and community groups to make this a bigger and better event for all entrants and visitors to Banjo Paterson Park on Saturday, 4th November. Stay for the weekend to enjoy our fantastic band ‘The Hips’ on Saturday night for a rock and roll dance and further outings organised for Sunday.
Get into the atmosphere and dress to match the period of your classic car. There will be some great prizes for the winners of competitions, including Best Vehicles and Best Heritage Costumes on the Day.
Our 'Motorshow Style' of display requires planing in advance, so it is important that we have vehicle details prior to the event. For this reason we ask that you complete an entry form and return it in plenty of time before the entry closing date. Please download an Entry Form with the button to the right.
Keep an eye (and ear) out for the vintage race cars on display.
For the young (and young at heart) the Billy Cart Derby will be held in Rossi Street adjacent to Banjo Paterson Park during our event.
This year, for the first time, Classic Yass will also feature the start of the Alpine Classic Rally from 8am on Saturday morning with the Alpine Classic cars returning to Yass Railway Museum on Sunday afternoon.
The sensational 8 piece band from Sydney ‘The Hips’ will be playing music in the park throughout the day for all to enjoy. Yes, Rockpile Jones and Paul McCann from Ol’55 fame will be back playing for us again!
