Hello world,
I'm posting my Nationals photos here as I want all the world to see the quality and variety of our Aussie cars. There is a lot of love bound up in these vehicles. Each is cherished, and they bring together a group of like minded friends who are happy to share info, parts, memorabila, rides, car care products and especially stories and good times.
The Nats this year were in Coonabarrabran NSW, and as this is a big country & we are spread over it, not all who would have liked to be there were able to attend in person, but they were there in spirit and many were spoken of in our conversations. (Nicely!)
In 2012 the Nationals will be held on the NSW south coast. We would like all who would like to attend to do so, and you can contact Bembokabellettbloke or myself for an invitation and accomodation info.

Here are some pics, more to follow.

No worries Niel, here are a few more SEDANS. (sorry I'm a bit slow - busy times!)

And the first 6 above were:
1. Convertible Dave & Joe's '69 deLuxe.
2. Stickman's '64 built '65.
3. Lindsey's '67 (I think)
4. Geoff's '69 GT powered auto.
5. Gary's '69 DeLuxe.
6. Gary's '67.

Then there's Dennis's '68 auto.

My '69 and Stickman's '64 parked beside each other in the judging row.
The youngest and the oldest at 'Coona' 2011. Who would have believed it.??

There was one more sedan which didn't join the line-up, 'cause we were away attempting to cure overheating problems. Short story is, Bob's '65 benchy is all fixed now.
I've added a "file photo" from Eastern Creek.

This is not a Bellett. It is a Falcon. While it is a pretty nice Falcon, it is NOT a Bellett. Next year I'm tipping it's place will be taken by a Bellett. Which one? Well, that's Ted's choice!

I like this scene - almost too many Belletts (& other Isuzus) to fit in one pic! And all those people are owners, lapping up the joy.

Number 3 red sedan is a '68 , & belongs to Ocka & Trish. We bought it from Lindsay a couple of months before Coona. She drove all the way there & back without missing a beat. She is now getting a complete makeover to make her look prettier, because mechanically she doesn't need anything much done.

Ah-ha! I missed that change of hands. Such a good roll-up that I wasn't able to get around everyone for a good talk. I reckon we could spend a week & still have plenty to see & talk about!
Thanks everyone,
Matt.
