Auto Italia Canberra

Set aside the weekend of 14-15 April, 2018 to come to Canbarra and see a lot of DeTomasos. Give Joe a call to confirm our meeting place for dinner and entertainment on Saturday night. Accommodation will be at a nearby location with safe parking, but you will need to check with Joe for the location. Please also let us know if you are bringing a car for Sunday, so we can reserve enough space for everyone.

2016 saw a fantastic turnout with 13 Detomasos present in Canberra and in prime position next to the pool. Amongst some fantastic vehicles Michael and Linda stole the show with their just finished 1971 Mangusta (see below) - the first time one has attended Auto Italia. And they took out the Ambassador’s choice award - one of only 5 awards that cover every one of the 600 vehicles present - a well deserved result. Michael and Linda worked extremely hard to complete this car in time, and given Micheal’s poor health it is a fine tribute to them both. We are sad to report that Michael lost his battle with cancer just a few weeks after this show.

The Photo gallery shows images from Auto Italia 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014 where up to seven Panteras and one Deauville were attending. This show provides the largest range of Detomaso vehicles at any one time Australia wide.
