Never been to this show before but it's put on by the Croydon Hills (Vic) mens shed each year. It's about an 45mins drive from home and it rained most of the drive which wasn't promising. I'm told the rain kept many away but there was still a good selection of cars from a 1911 Hotchkiss to a Tesla S. The latter owner amusing the crowd by driving the car in the car park using his mobile phone.
The odometer on the Hotchkiss is on a front wheel hub.

I had a nice EH sedan in my youth and have a soft spot for them. Here's a sedan which apprently is modifed (V8?) but never saw under the hood. The EH ute was mildy modified with soem chrome work, bucket seats and integrated air con inside. Disk brake front end etc.

Have heard of but never seen this model Lotus before. In the back is a Toyota 3.5L V6 with a Lotus fitted Harrop supercharger on it. (Harrop makes these in Melbourne and a lot of car related performance bits) The owner kept starting it up and revving the innards out of it, no idea why.

Lots of American stuff including late model Mustangs. No opint in posting a pic of them.

Note how the Vic Historic plates are climbing in numbers. I recently saw one in the 85,000's. That means they will run out of numbers next year and will have to chnage the "H" to maybe "C" for classic?

This Kombi was probably star of the show. I wonder whats it's worth. I think on esold for over $100k at auction this year.
I used to have a two tone blue FJ. Bought it for $300. Won't find much for that price these days.

The Jupiter certainly is an unusual car both looks and mechanical.

the FJ makes the Bellett look tiny ..... never really appreciated the size before.
I should have parked next to the Corollas.
