Default Eastern creek - 2013

In no particular order. This year, I managed to take sixty photographs. Last year - it was two less. So without further ado, these are some of the cars I liked the look of, or perhaps would like to dream about, or are just plain rare and unusual. The first to come off Photobucket is this Facel Vega - I just loooove the styling with those Air Intakes, and grille - the frontal set up reminds me so much of the 1962 David Brown Lagonda Rapide.



Another Packard - quite magnificent. I think this one is well known in the Classic Car movement.



One of the Packards - magnificent, resplendent in Black and Silver.



'50s MG - delectable even with a rock hard road. A better looker, than a car.



This is the business end of the '50s supercharged MG Saloon.



That self-same MG Saloon - apparently the Supercharger boosts power from 40PS to 110 PS. The Supercharger only works when the loud pedal is accessed. It is a delightful little car. Apparently very reliable, as it has been to Melbourne, Brisbane etc. - not bad.



This is another picture, to give an idea of the overall shape of the car.



Regards Styria

N.B. Sorry about long delay - Photobucket is absolutely diabolical to use.

The Lancia Contingent - no need for me to talk - unless needed











--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Honda - would you believe I have forgotten the model designation. You all know how rare it is.



Beautiful Caddies - how can you better them.....



One of my REAL favourites - the Buick of 1948/9.






Cannot identify this car.......






Lovely Packard.........one of my favourites when I first arrived in this country.




--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Who can identify the Gleaming Beauty ?



I think this Roundie belongs to our CraigS......





The underbonnet view can be quite impressive and daunting.......



Latish model Convertible - very nice, and different to the traditional Brits. That's not a bad thing, BTW.



The next one...just lovely.



--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Regards Styria .......More to come.

They are nice crisp photos Styria - good resolution. I took my camera but ended up with no photos because I kept chatting to people. Thoroughly enjoyable.
Regards,
Brian

Superb photos Styria thank you very much for posting the photos.


I have seen the Facel Vega at the Hawks Nest Motorfest before.

And a fine looking Roundie in that colour.
From here it looks to be in top condition.

Part of the Club Cars contingent - note SEL69L's Diamond Blue (?) with freshly refurbished W126 rims - in the middle of picture.



I think this may have been one of the Caddies.



This Silver Ghost was magnificent - it's not a car, but an heirloom of the finest description.





This is the Rolls Royce's President's car, with his trophy i9n safe keeping. Congratulations, Sir BenzBoy.





Unashamedly, one of my favourite cars.....the Rover 3 litre Cars.



Badges are easy to come by nowadays - well, you'd think so, wouldn't you..



--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Big and bulbous - but I like it. Wouldn't have photographed it otherwise......



I like Studebakers, but they didn't get the front styling right - really, it is an abomination, but somebody obviously loves it.



Is this one better ? Lemme see - I think so, but certainly has the owner's touch all opver it.I can just iomagine the purists.............



That's more to my liking - quite elegant. Well, I think so.........





The only Mustangs I like are the Fastback models.



--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Chryslers of that era - at least two to three steps above contempoary Holdens of that period.





Vauxhall Velox and Cresta of that period - way above Holdens etc. of that period - in fact, I used to think that the styling was quite stunning.



I like Corvettes - this one is exceptional......



Please, feast your eyes on this masterpiece.



Regards Styria - more to come, I think.

MBW116 belongs to an RROCA member who is not a member of the MBCNSW - also has a rather nice Pontiac DHC but it was not there on Saturday. Yes, that's my Spirit Tim.
