Break out the vegemite and bog in, mate. Hear that didgeridoo? It’s time for a pair of posts from the land down under. First up, a couple of weekends ago, the Gold Coast held its annual WinterSun Festival (the southern hemisphere is on winter time right now), which includes a car cruise and drag race. Of course, jet-setting proprietor of Mooneyes, Shige Suganuma, was there to witness the madness and has it all covered on his blog.
In addition to some truly bonzer drag cars like this bitumen-walloping Mitsubishi Arrow (Lancer Celeste), he also visited a Toyota Australia “Toyota Day” held at a dealer training center where heaps of Coronas and Crowns, including this roo-bar wearing kujira, came to celebrate.
They don’t call it the Lucky Country for nothing. Will our raging jealousy over their well-preserved crop of RHD nostalgics ever subside? Not bloody loikley.
