The October weather was a bit up and down – everywhere! However the Cummins Show and Pistons & Props enabled many Club members and visitors to bring out their vehicles, put them on display and add to the entertainment.
Twenty four vehicles made for an impressive display on a beautiful October day – rather unusual for a Cummins Show day! The gathering was made up of predominately Lincoln Auto Club vehicles, with exhibits representing our Cummins, Tumby Bay and Port Lincoln based members. Adding to this were some very interesting local vehicles from a very original 1965 XP Falcon ute, still used for its owner’s regular trips from Cummins to the farm, and the very last HG Monaro GTS produced at GMH’s Dandenong plant.
James Minhard displayed graphic examples of “before” and “after” with his 1973 Wild Plum coloured XA Falcons. The Fairmont turns heads already, but there is a way to go with the extremely rare XA GT RPO. Keep us posted with your progress James.
With all the work already done Gerald & Sue Pedler’s HQ Monaro was a stunner. We’ve seen it at Coffin Bay but it certainly stood out on home ground.
Classic Minis and beautiful vintage models rounded off a broad spectrum of motor vehicle which kept a large crowd interested.
Many thanks go to the Lock family for bringing together a quality display – Jasmine (assisted by Bronte) for her initiative in organising the car section of the Cummins Show, and son Tim, who sponsored the event in providing the ribbons AND prize money.
Further photos of the Cummins roll up have been posted in the Lincoln Auto Club’s website Gallery.
Pistons & Props
As the photo indicates, the weather was a little inclement, but that didn’t deter another pretty good representative display of our Club vehicles, along with visitors from Road Runners, to add a classic automotive flavour to the Port Lincoln Airshow on October 16th.
Ideally situated in prime viewing position for the airborne activity, the display was also between the public car park and the public viewing area which delivered a constant stream of interested passerby’s.
Peter Dennis was also a visitor with his immaculately restored Kombi Camper, which was not only a conversation piece but provided shelter for many from the passing showers! It was much more comfortable than Bronte Lock’s Mini ute!
