Makin tracks in car club
VINTAGE car enthusiast Nigel Makin hit the open road this week through the Avon Valley in his 1929 Triumph Super 7, joining other devotees from the Pre-War Sports Car Club.
The club is celebrating its 20th anniversary with a four-day rally that started at Oakover Estate in Middle Swan before taking in some of the best driving roads in Beverley, York and Cunderdin.
“The range of cars taking part are quite rare and some of great beauty, from Bentleys to MGs to Amilcars,” Mr Makin said.
“I have been researching the Triumph for more than 20 years, which led me to the original car, the Imp, which was driven and raced with success by Eric Armstrong right here in WA.”
The event started yesterday, September 6, going till Sunday, September 9.
