Mother’s sponsors the Hotrod and Custom Auto Expo

The cars on display represent thousands of hours and hundreds and thousands of dollars spent by dedicated car enthusiasts.

They also represent the owner’s ideas of how a particular style of car could be built. The cars on display this weekend will be as safe, if not safer than a current mass produced car driven on our streets today, the reason being is that these custom cars are required to comply with the same design rules as any other registered vehicle. These design rules make it hard for builders to comply, but every car builder includes the necessary modifications to his car to pass the stringent safety rules set by the RMS.

Every car in the show is competing for trophies, which are awarded to the winners of various classes.

In order to obtain the results a panel of four judges inspect the cars, two judges are resident of NSW and two are brought in from interstate. The judges and Stewards at the show are under the control of the ASRF. The rule book can be downloaded from their website. With the ASRF supplying the judges you can be sure that the cars that do win the trophies have definitely deserved them.
