The Jon Gutte Mk.7 has found a new owner and the car will be remaining in South Australia.

Coil spring tyres.

In 1917 Germany couldn't get their hands on rubber.
This was the solution.

Favourite 3-wheelers No.16

Not your ordinary Reliant Robin. This one is Mini powered. And it's a ute.
The Mini engine is driving the rear wheels. I wonder if it would be any more stable. Mr. Bean could probably still upend it.
Still more load capacity than a Suzuki Mighty Boy.

In a nutshell.

Club Registration from 1/7/2017.

Too easy.
There will not be a requirement for stat. decs.

50s cars required.

If anyone's in a position to help out with the below, contact Gary:
"My name is Gary Baxter I am working on a movie called Storm Boy starring Geoffrey Rush to be shot in and around Pt Elliott in mid August. We are looking for 15 x dressing vehicles (parked in the street) that would be typical of circa 1959. Although a few sedans would have been common we are after a good mix of utes, vans and small trucks as well, the more rustic the better. Keeping in mind a FC Holden for ex...ample would be new then so no need to be too rustic but ideally, early to mid 40s would be best. The art department may want to dirty the cleaner cars to make them look natural, this wouldn’t hurt the cars and would just wash off.
There may be a requirement for a car or two to do a drive by. We should only need the cars for one or two days. We would pay $300 per day per car and the owners would be responsible for getting the car to location.
Hopefully some of your members will see an opportunity to not only get their cars out, earn a few dollars but enjoy the bragging rights of being involved in such a great sequel and prequel of the famous movie.
If you could please forward this to any of your members you believe may be interested and if they could email me on with photos and details would be much appreciated"

That's the way!

This Lamborghini Murcielago bobbed up at Rawnsley Park Station.

Dirt roads from every direction. The owner said he'd clocked up 100,000 Kms already. I think that's great. As you know, I've always been an advocate for getting proper use out of your cars.
Talking about Panteras, not many people would have been aware of our first one.

Favourite 3-wheelers No.15

Still trying to figure out the advantage here but then again, I'm no engineer.

The retired gentlemen's coffee morning in the West.

And good to see an Ikara out and about, hobnobbing with the big Healeys and XK150s.

Cute little numbers No.7

I imagine this would be up for a few design awards.

Nostalgia and some familiar faces.

1993 Australian Hillclimb Championship - One Tree Hill, Ararat.

Grey stuff - 57

Maybe I should say "green stuff". Anyway, this is a 6 cylinder early 30s Opel. Now, if that's not where the grey motor came from I'll walk bare arsed to China. Second thoughts, maybe I'll just go "he" for chasey.
