Great Show

Unique Cars - - JB'S DIARY -

Just want to bring to your es­teemed read­er­ship the best car show I’ve been to, the Syd­ney Clas­sic held at Syd­ney Mo­tor­sport Park on Sun­day 13 Aug.

There was ev­ery­thing from Willys vin­tage, hum­ble EH and humpy FJs, through to dou­ble-decker buses that lapped the creek in a cool 3.5 mins. Yes for a gold coin you could ex­pe­ri­ence the thrill of V-ter­mi­nal about 50km/h and ev­ery win­dow, nut and bolt rat­tling!

Ex NSW po­lice pur­suit cars, big 50s and 60s land yachts (read Dodge Phoenix). Paint jobs from con­cours to finest patina. Plenty of au­to­mo­bilia in the pit garages.

Two and four wheel ve­hi­cles aplenty and it was per­fect weather. A big thank you to the CMC, Shan­nons and the ARDC for or­gan­is­ing and run­ning this fan­tas­tic event. I highly rec­om­mend it for Syd­neysiders in­ter­ested (or not!) in clas­sic cars.

Re your re­sponse to No per­mit­soutWest ( Is­sue 403), it gave me a warm feel­ing read­ing about the in­ter­est ramp­ing up for events such as these. I think there’s ex­cit­ing times ahead for own­ers and wannabe own­ers of said clas­sics with re­gard to cheaper reg­is­tra­tion for older ve­hi­cles. Hope­fully the pol­lies will agree.

Keep the up­dates re Glenn Tor­rens’ VN Calais com­ing. It’s good to read about the km they swal­low up at lit­tle cost as they trac­tor along at 1500 rpm! I got one I paid $1500 for and it truly is the best car.

So, you bet­ter hold onto your sag­ging roof VN for a lit­tle while yet!
