My Model T ar Great Lakes Motorfest 2017

The turnout was less than last year, mostly due to a nasty weather forecast for Tuncurry, with rainfall in the region of 20-40 millimetres predicted – and yet we didn’t see a single drop! It was hit and miss whether I was going to take the Model T along, making a last minute decision at 8 o’clock in the morning – glad I turned up!

Some more of our members present included Peter Jackson with his Chev, Don Phillips brought his Mini Cooper S, and Allan Walters with his Chrysler 75.

This years featured car was the Morgan, with a collection of nearly a dozen Morgan’s of various vintages, from early models right up to those built less than a decade ago.

An interesting mix of cars, the usual suspects and some not usually seen, including a Willy’s MB Jeep, which saw action in Papua New Guinea, a stunning and unmolested Ford Model A, a number of Jaguars, MG’s and the usual Valiants. Some congratulations for two of our members, who won awards for their cars, Don Phillips won Best British for his Mini Cooper S, and Allan Walters won an award for his Chrysler 75.

Weekend on Wheels 2017 – Video

Shae and myself took my 1925 Ford Model T to Weekend on Wheels on Sunday.

Allan Walters won Best Vintage for his 1929 Chrysler 75 – congratulations Allan, well deserved, considering the 30+ years it took to get your car looking as fantastic as it does today

The weather was threatening in the morning, and drizzled a little, but cleared up to a somewhat warm and sunny afternoon.

I estimate almost 200 cars were present, with the usual hot rods, trucks, motorcycles. 

Not many original vintage cars there, aside from street rods, my 1925 Ford Model T and Allan’s 1929 Chrysler 75 were the oldest original classics there. 

Al Bryson’s Austin Healey Sprite quickly had the hood up when the rain started!

Enjoy the video! …

A Vintage Wedding in my Ford Model T

On Saturday, April 8th, I had the honour of my 1925 Ford Model T being a part of Jamie and Alistair’s vintage-themed Wedding Day. It was an honour to drive Jamie to her ceremony, and the both newlyweds to their photo locations and to their reception afterwards. The weather on the day was nothing short of perfect, having poured with rain almost every day of the week leading up to the wedding. Congratulations Jamie and Alistair…
