    Cars of The World, jan 30th, Victoria

    This weekend is take 2 of Cars of The World, postponed from a weekend of flooding in November.
    The irony is we are heading for 40deg - thats 104 in the other book.

    So far there are 130 cars entered. a smattering of Mazda mx-5's, dattos, princes and R31 skylines are amongst them, with hopefully plenty more coming along on the day.

    Where: Rochford Winery
    Cost: $25 to enter - can do it on the day before 11:30am.
    web: carsoftheworld.com.au

    cheers,
    A 320 ute, 2 roadsters, 2 1200's ...... & a Prince.

    OK so the event was today and hot doesn't begin to describe it. Numbers were down, but still several hundred attended.

    Gavin has restored this roadster a couple years ago, and whilst big dollars were spent (I'm talking serious big dollars ) it means he has nothing to worry about - just gets in and drives. He did a bit of work on the engine, but it's almost a daily driver for him



    Mark(phuc on the forums), recently bought this one. He has another currently in bits, but this one was too good to pass up. It's in superb condition.






    There was also this one..



    Len's a club member, and has been around the traps for years- he used to be a factory Ford driver when they did the round Australia tests etc




    Some fellow Prince owners came along




    GTS145 plus the Classic Skyline guys came along also.

    We don't normally see many cars seriously slammed.





    The MX-5 was a feature marque



    Haven't seen this many Bellets in a long time. 1600GT took his gaggle.














    Some others




    Randoms





    This car won the Concourse and really nothing else was gonna come close. a 1912 Rolls Royce phantom. Whilst some trailered cars, he drove it in the 45odd km Cavalcade to the event in said 40 degrees.
    Think about it- next year this car will be 100 years old.....



    (on the right, the left was the runner up)


    Apart from the 3 or 4 MR-2's, no toyotas, no hondas, no mitsu, and apart from the 25 MX-5's no Mazda. usually there's more than that there, and it's a great event- food for thought to those over here..............
