Barossa Events

National Model T Ford Rally

29 - 5 October 2013, 4:00pm-4:00pm

Location: Barossa Valley

National Model T's Ford Rally in the Barossa!

Lizzie’s Convene in 2013
Tin Lizzies put the T in Tanunda
From Sunday 29 September Tanunda will be the hub for Model T Fords and their owners at the 11th national rally for the world’s first mass-produced car. ‘Tin Lizzies’ all over Australia will converge on Barossa Valley for the week-long event - Lizzie’s Convene in 2013. 
Hosted by the Model T Ford Club of Australia, the rally will see around 150 Model Ts dating from 1908 to 1927 motoring all over the Barossa for what will be the 4th time SA has hosted the event. 
The ‘dress-up’ run to the National Motor Museum on Thursday 3 October promises to be a highlight. A fashion show ‘on the run’ from Tanunda to Birdwood will have owners, drivers and passengers alike aiming to dress in the style that befits their vehicle. So whether it’s Edwardian elegance or the flapper-look of the 1920s, the cars and the costumes are sure to impress.
