ohOne of the very many hot car events that fell victim to COVID-19 restrictions this year was the Showcars ​​Melbourne Father’s Day Car & Bike Show. Nonetheless, promoter Elvis Barbieri was able to secure another date and the show went off without a hitch yesterday in the Melbourne seaside suburb of St Kilda.

The iconic Acland Street shopping street has been closed to traffic and trams for the day, with hundreds of hot streeters filling the streets, parking lots and grassy areas in the shade of Luna Park.

With live bands, DJs, kids’ activities, and the general public in the mix, the vibe was on the next level! Here are 10 cars that caught our attention.
