Just to be clear. FREE entry to the grounds at Linnwood House, 25 Byron Road, Guildford, NSW. BYO picnic or enjoy BBQ and drinks courtesy "Friends of Linnwood". Inspect the historic House for just $3 and inside you will find excellent historic displays, some quality craftspeople and a wonderful morning/afternoon tea. Other car clubs will be on display in the expansive grounds. You can check out Linnwood House here: www.linnwood.org.au

Wet weather will be NO PROBLEM because we will be able to sit on the House verandah or just use the tea room.

So....No "booking" required, but RSVP to Julie would be terrific. 0414 094 567 isuzuccaofficial@gmail.com or leave a reply here. We are already hearing of members old and new making flight bookings!

Other activities will be planned for the weekend when we get an idea of who and how many are coming from far away.

Getting excited.

And Stickman! And Chloe and Graham! With their pristine teardrop. I call this shot 'before and after'.

But I need sleep now. It was a very nice day. :D

Thank you Matty for your contribution, WHAT A FANTASTIC DAY WITH FELLOW ENTHUSIASTS AND GREAT CARS!!!
We end up with 41 cars and over 90 great people.
Fletch of Classic Restos fame came along, arrived early and simply stayed all day filming and Interviewing owners of the cars. Feed back from Fletch said he had a great day and was very impressed with our group of members/enthusiasts.
Some of our members turned up, who we had not seen for over 20 years, the support from our enthusiasts/ex members was simply mind blowing.
The first time in 50 years we had all 5 of our Life Members together at the one location.

Many pictures taken during the day, the day was capped off by the Presentation by Cornelius Ionescu from IUA with a piece sent from ISUZU Japan to the Club Celebrate our Clubs 50 year since Inception, Cornelius stayed all day and talked with everyone, with Cornelius was Grant Reynolds, NSW Regional Manager for IUA who was very interested in the history behind the cars.

It was certainly a day those that attended will remember for a long time.
Thank you to all those members that travelled so far to be there on the day!

A very big Thank you again, to Julie and her Team of ladies who set the photo boards and organized the shirts and free gifts to those that attended.
More photos to come!!
Dave M.

There is reasons behind the item presented by IUA, the writing on each side has a response and the eye filled is a congratulations in reaching the 50 years, the other eye is for the Committee to decide something like a target of 100 cars, or the next 10 years, enables the Members and Committee to set another target.
The left eye was filled in by Cornelius Ionescu from IUA Brisbane.

Not dodgy really Gerry, Warren replaced the number plate with a D Max plate, don't know where he got that however!! :lol:
It was a great day Gerry, more of our original members back almost the 50 years turned up to enjoy the day, we missed Lewis though!!

Yeah mate made it back home ok :mrgreen:
Donkey was painted by a relative of mine (the brother of my mum's brother inlaw) Eddie Ashenden
He does Auto Trim (graphics and signs) but he also does commission paintings for anyone, be it of their cars, pet portraits, houses, holiday happy snaps and just about anything else too.

His website is www.autotrimdesign.com.au
or on Facebook - Eddy Ashenden Artist

I know a little time has passed but I have no internet signal where I live so posting any of my pics has been impossible.
A massive THANK YOU again for the huge effort that went into organizing and hosting such a fabulous day. Wish I could have stayed longer but it was a bit of a hike back up the hill for work again on the Tuesday.

Here are a few of my favorite pics from the day....... starting with the most important ones........"The people" :D
