Clas­sic cars im­press

The Cobram Courier - - NEWS -

Lo­cal vin­tage cars were ad­mired from ev­ery an­gle when the Vin­tage Clas­sic Car Club of Bal­larat came to town.

The club mem­bers stopped to ad­mire the cars of lo­cal car en­thu­si­ast John An­der­son, who gave them a whirl­wind tour of his beloved col­lec­tion.

Mr An­der­son ex­plained the his­tory and her­itage of each car in his col­lec­tion, which he had been ac­cru­ing over a life­time.

‘‘I have been in­volved with it all my work­ing life,’’ he said.

‘‘Ev­ery car I’ve got here has a story to it.’’

The club from Bal­larat has more than 800 cars, but Mr An­der­son’s col­lec­tion still man­aged to im­press, ac­cord­ing to club mem­ber Paul Tracy.

‘‘It’s a magic col­lec­tion,’’ he said.

‘‘Each car here has such a per­sonal story and some of those sto­ries go back to the First World War.

‘‘It’s a priv­i­lege to have John show us around.’’
