Yes what an amazing museum. Those of you who were not able to join Sean, Benzboy and 260E missed a really good day.

I will upload more photos later but in the meantime here is BenzBoy's Spirit II and my DS.

Well I hope you will all come to the R-R drive and be driven day at Peats Ridge on July 10. Styria has been before but now its bigger and better than before and we will have the Tesla there. Not sure if we can drive it or not yet.
Regards,
Brian

If you do get a chance to drive the Tesla - take it! and this is coming from somebody who is rarely interested in new cars.

We had a meeting of the Citroen club at the tesla showroom last year and we all got 20 minute test drives. It was by far the fastest thing I have ever driven. You really do feel the weight of all the batteries as it made my 1690kg 450SLC feel light. They are obviously targeting BMW drivers as the suspension, steering, seats are firm and probably more to the liking of 5 series drivers.

Well what a terrific day out at the museum.

Good to see Brian, Sean and to also meet Bryce.

Very impressed with the all of the cars on display just to many cars to choose from!

I certainly could have easily taken home some of the cars.


Once again thanks very much to Brian & the Rolls Royce Club for the invitation to the museum.

Please enjoy the photos.

Just like I said lots of cars...

That red Gullwing is superb.

Sad to see the gold 300SEL 6.3 sitting out the back the car was sitting so low suspension in need of repair?

Terrific to see another Facel Vega that is only the second of that car I have seen myself.

The 300S convertible Mercedes now that was just beautiful!

The design of some of the Lincoln's unbelievable.

Aston Martin Lagonda on display imagine they are quite a rare car here in Australia?

The Aston Martin DB5 did look superb also a great collection of Rolls Royce, Jaguar & Bentley & BMW.

Even The King Elvis might be jealous of that pink Cadillac?!

Did see the Vintage Nash on display as well.

Not many more pics to go well I did take over 100 photos busy day at the office sorry I mean at the museum!


Talk about a tight squeeze no room to move between the 300SEL 6.3 and the black Mercedes.

Just see how low the suspension is sitting on the 6.3 talk about low to the ground!

The Delorean was popular with the very large crowd!

The colour of that E-Type Jaguar shining ever so bright under the lights of the museum!

VW Kombi's & Beetles plus a great collection of Porsche's on display.

Interesting to see the black Maybach on display.

Plus the black with white roof Lincoln convertible with the suicide doors.

The same Lincoln tragically President Kennedy died whilst travelling through Texas.

There we go photos done phew!

Please enjoy guys.
