It will be a case of new name, old cars on Sunday when the Van Diemens Street Rod Club hosts its annual USA Day car show at the recently rebadged UTAS Stadium. 

Between 150 and 200 cars are expected to be on display at what will be the club’s 28th show and shine event, with club president Leigh Dennis encouraging car owners to get involved. 

“It was based solely on American cars years ago but you've got to go with the times now and cater to everyone,” Mr Dennis said. 

“It’s open to everything - hot rods, muscle cars, customs, Japanese cars - we get a few boats there as well.”

Mr Dennis said the show would also offer plenty for the average punter, with live entertainment all day and trophies up for grabs. 

“We've got fashion displays this year, rock and roll dancing and a live band there for patrons so it should be a good day.”

The show will run from 9am to 3pm and entrants are encouraged to begin arriving from 8am.

Entry is $10 for adults and free for under 14s.
