Club West Show n Shine – Rural Fire Service Fundraiser

My ever-supportive and amazing wife Shae and myself took my 1925 Ford Model T along to the inaugural Club West Show n Shine today, raising funds for the Kundle/Moto Rural Fire Service, weather was rather windy, but at least it didn’t rain!!

There were approximately thirty-five cars all told, and about 10 motorbikes. Only one or two others besides myself were at the show from our club, as it was the inaugural show, and also since it clashed with at least two other shows on the same day, including the Mount George Public School birthday celebrations, and I understand there was also a show on at Killabakh.

The RFS put on a sausage sizzle for lunch, and the local kids were invited to play with the fire hoses on the fire truck which was on display – much to their enjoyment!

The Rural Fire Service NSW plans to make this show an annual event, with sponsors already lined up for next year’s event, and hopefully a larger selection of categories.

On the way home in the Model T, Shae held my phone with a Speedometer app running, and I achieved a new record top speed! 64km/h 🙂 … yes alright it was down hill… with a tail wind!
