Question Sydney Autosalon Worth it??

I heard on the radio that the Sydney Auto Salon at the Olympic park is on this weekend. Haven't been to this before - wondering if it was worth going?? How was last year - any decent cars or just lots of rice? I heard that some sort of awesome falcon will be there - im guessing the talon ute thingy with the gull wing doors.
worth the price of admission??????

I think they are improving - but still basically the drug dealer championships.

Lots and Lots of RICE. Wouldn't waste time or money.

its worth it mate....point of information; i believe rice is all show no go and really cheap ugly looking mods done to KE lasers

There is a lot of dollars spent on some very nice looking cars. The Rigoli est. always pleases. Its worth it but wear sunglasses to shield your eyes from chrome and shiny 3 stripe tracksuits.

But noteable absence of V8s or Fords....plenty of VL turbos though ;-)

SOme of the dudes at the Auto Salon look like they want to bash you every time you walk around their car.

But yeah, S#$TLOADS of rice man, some of it is beyond belief.

I'd save your money and give it a miss.
