Post subject:  Bellett run to Warragul

Weather permitting:-

A few of us have decided to again attend the Gippsland Sporting and Classic car club's Breakfast Club on the 12th November (ie next week)

Held in the Warragul CBD. Victoria St, opposite McDonalds.

It's an informal event with all types of interesting cars attending. Lots of coffee shops around and Mackers, Target is open, although only a few of the other small shops in the shopping centre are open.

We don't have direct contact details of members so placing this here for anybody interested to come along also.

Plan at the moment is to meet at the outbound BP Station on the M1 Freeway at 7:45 am and to leave there at 8am sharp. Yes its early, but the show runs usually from 8am to 10 or 11am. It's about 30-35min drive to Warragul.

We might come back the slightly longer way, via Ripplebrook, Lang Lang etc & back to the BP on the opposite side of the freeway in-bound, from start point.

Return journey about 90minutes depending on where we may stop. Possibly at Warrook Farm near Lang Lang.. Or Caldermeade Farm and Cafe nearby. Or anywhere ..........

EDIT: Approx 45km down and 75km return. This is not an observation rally, just a pleasant drive.

plenty of early and late Mustangs. A couple of late Ferraris, a late Fiat Abarth, based on the MX-5.

And many other makes..... a few older cars from the 20's etc. A very neat Morris Minor fitted with an EFI DOHC Toyoata 4GE motor which is in the picture above of the Hillman.

Looks like you had a great day out, good on you all for getting out there.
People need to see our little cars.

I went to Canberra yesterday for a gathering, so made use of one of my 60 permit days and drove Doris. At a servo while filling up a fellow came up to me and told me about his family Bellett, that they got when he was 8. Same age as me when Gary and Dennis got theirs! He hadn't seen one for years, but said the shape was immediately familiar to him as he drove in. As he slid a finger along the back left guard chrome strip, he recounted that it had been a reliable and much loved car.
Nice to give people a little trip down memory lane. :)
Cheers, Matt.

It's always amazing, just about every place we go, we get the same thing. People who used to have a Bellett, knew of them etc etc.

Hi Stickman

Those Hillmans were a wonderful thing - could stay with an Auto XW GT till 50 mph.

When I was at Uni in the 70's we had a guy in a 660 that we could never pass in our Belletts and Zephers

I too have a soft spot for the Hillman variety - had a Series 2 Sunbeam Rapier as my first car, loved that thing.

Cheers Flying
