If you own a slice of motoring history such as a 50s, 60s or 70s classic, custom or motorcycle and you’re into the music of these decades then now’s the time to start planning your involvement in the Rock & Roll Rendezvous.

As usual, it’s at the National Motor Museum in the beautiful Adelaide Hills and this year Sunday, 14 April is the big day. So as long as your vehicle was manufactured before 31 December 1978, then you’re in. Well, actually, you can be ‘in’ even if you don’t own a hunk of precious metal, in that you can enjoy the spectacle, dig out the flares and pedal pushers and as Sly and the Family Stone urged: Dance to the Music.

If you’ve survived the Twist, Monster Mash, et al, at the Saturday night rave, then there’s a huge day ahead on Sunday starting with a breakfast cruise to the museum, dance competitions, fashion parades, kids events, the list goes on and on.

Rock & Roll Rendezvous tickets are available at the gate on the day with entry to the National Motor Museum included in the price. Adults: $20; concession: $15; under 15: free. Purchase 10 or more tickets in advance and you’ll get the discounted concession rate. Contact Pauline Renner on 08 8568 4034, email rockandroll@history.sa.gov.au or at the online address below.

For those lucky enough to own a qualifying ‘classic’ (plus a pair of drainpipes or flares and a frilly collared shirt) now is the time to ensure that your ‘baby’ is up there with a few hundred others competing for some really fab prizes.
