Gold Country Car Rally

Last weekend heralded our Historic Car Club’s annual rally.  Mick and I weren’t as involved this year, so I had a chance to wander around the lovely cars during the lunch break.  There was a huge variety of cars entered this year.

The rally had a record number of entries and the weather was good.  You have to be happy with that.

The orange Ford ute was Mick’s favourite.

The little Anglia was a very popular car, winning its class.

I’m guessing this is a 1947 Buick (looking at the number plate)?  Another popular class winner with its straight 8 engine.

This rather classy Austin won best car in the rally. Notice the screen in front of the rear seat.  Rather posh.

I do like looking at all the bonnet emblems.  They are a real work of art from a very different time.

I think everyone had a great time.  It is a lot of work to arrange, but very rewarding on the weekend.
