2013 Motorfest 26 January 2013

Although the NRMA is not running the motorfest this year, it was still very well run with lots of interesting vehicles on display. What I did notice was that there wasn't as many vehicles on display, as well as the lack of general car clubs represented and the uneven balance of marques. For some reason there were no Humbers and very few Fords or Chryslers but lots of Holdens and Morris vehicles represented. However there were still lots of interesting, unusual and rare cars to drool over and I have already contacted the organisers to book my car in for 2014!

Berry - Ford Prefect

Berry Rally May 2011

Berry Rally May 2011

I was invited down to Berry by the Shoalhaven historical car group to display my Humber Sceptre at a rally at Berry Showground. The car went well and it was a pleasant drive to Berry. They had a great variety of vehicles from vintage trucks to classic bike, with some fairly unique vehicles. I spotted an immaculate early Ford Prefect, which was the first car that I owned. I also saw a 1960's British campervan, similar to the one we had in England - can't believe it was so small - there is no way we could live in it now!

Merro Meadows Rally May 2011

We were invited to a small rally around Berry with a friend of ours who owns a Rover Coupe. We set off from the Anglican Church and slowly headed south. There were 2 Rovers, 2 Minis and a lovely black MGTF and my Humber Sceptre. I have just attached some car badges and old stickers and they look great. We headed to Don's farm at the back of Jasper's Brush through narrow roads set amongst emerald green valleys. The car went very well and cruised easily along the highway. I am thinking of getting sheepskin covers for the seats coming up to winter.
