I thought you folk might be interested in seeing a little bit of the Australian historic motoring scene......
The 3rd Sunday of May each year is Australia's "National Motoring Heritage Day". Which means that Historically registered vehicles have the freedom to be driven anywhere without the need for a club sanctioned event. On this day each year, a neighbouring club puts on a big event at Berry, a lovely little coastal town, 2.5hrs north from here and about 2 hours south of Sydney.
2 weeks ago I drove my old Mk1 Zephyr up there and had a fantastic time. Purdey held her head up high amongst some pretty awesome machinery, some of which I've shown in a slide show on my Clubs (MATAMA) website. You can see it here, but remember, this is just a tiny portion of the 400+ cars that were in attendance. https://matama.weebly.com/berry-20518.html
Cheers,
Rob
