Autofest returned to Oshawa’s lakefront this weekend to celebrate all things automotive at Lakeview Park.

The show, which began in 1994 at the former GM Canada headquarters building on Colonel Sam Drive, the show, is a showcase for classic and modern muscle cars and vintage autos of all descriptions, with 1,500 classic cars, customs, trucks and tuners on hand every year at Lakeview Park for the long-running and always popular Autofest Nationals.


From Corvettes to Corvairs to Camaros and from Dusters to Daytonas and Mustangs to Model Ts, Autofest had it all, with car owners making the trek from all over North America to show off their vehicles to thousands of visitors.

This year’s show, which kicked off with the free Kars on King event in downtown Oshawa, featured an Old Skool Reunion (hot rods, rat rods and custom rods of every variety), Tunerfest (showcasing cars from a different side of the enthusiast community) and the Modern Muscle event (contemporary Mustangs, Camaros and Chargers and all their high-powered cousins), along with a variety of other events for car lovers of all ages.
