FUEL econ­omy took a back seat to style­when the Bund­abergVin­tageVe­hi­cle Club came to Gayn­dah.

The club took up the motto “slowand steady” as mem­bers jour­neyed across the back roads from the coast.

The con­voy was made up of a 1923 Ford Model T, a 1944 Ford Army Jeep, a 1929 Hup­mo­bile and a 1946 Chevro­let util­ity. All the cars were in im­mac­u­late con­di­tion, aside from the smat­ter­ing of bugs on the wind­shield and grilles af­ter the long drive.

Club pres­i­dent Ian Pear­son said the club had made the trip out to Gayn­dah sev­eral times. “It’s a very scenic drive,” he said. “We came in through Eidsvold, Mun­dub­bera and through Mt Perry.”

Mem­bers spent the week­end at Gayn­dah, vis­it­ing a lo­cal cit­rus or­chard and the Gayn­dah Mu­seum.
