Event gallery: Street Machines and Customs Tauranga 41st Anniversary

24 October 2018



Having run for some 41 years, the Street Machines and Customs Tauranga annual show remains today as free for all those who wish to look upon what the region has to offer. Despite the weather playing hardball in the lead up, things went off without a hitch and a solid number of car lined up between the Cameron Road and Greerton Road roundabouts on Chadwick road back on the 22nd of September, 2018.

Offering great viewing, a charity auction, and a live band, it proved to be worthwhile for all those who looked on and saw a good amount of the entered cars rewarded for their efforts. Check out the winners and photos from the day below:
