Default Styria's Eastern Creek - 2012

It's taken a little bit of time to organize the recent Eastern Creek photos. Our club, the Mercedes Benz Club of NSW was well represented, although the allocated area may have been less than ideal.

When I select the cars, I endeavour to photograph the unusual or rare, or obviously the ones that look beautifully styled to my perspective. I hope the pics and selections meet with your approval. I ask no favours for showing No. 1 - I know, not the best, nor the most desirable, nor the best looking car, but nevertheless she still has to be No. ! - it's Gleaming Beauty, parked on her lonesome, away from the throng....



You can't ignore the styling - only the Yanks can do it like this.....



Not your classic British or German style, but nevertheless still very impressive.






The picture tells the story.....in my humble opinion.





Very rare '55 model, and beautiful colour.....



I have it on good authority that this V16 engined Cadillac cost $50K. to recondition several years ago - that's the engine, not the rest...



A very nice W107....don't know the owner, but it looked the part.





One of my favourites - the Jensen 541R (you see, they already had the RRRR's in the fifties, sixties ?



Not the most beautiful, nor unusual, but cetainly rare - a 50s Fiat 1100 Station Wagon ?



This car had to be the star of the Show - the Aston Martin DBR2 (?)......





Hudsons - very impressive - where are they today ? Well, we all know...............



More to come. Regards Styria

Okay, what else was there - let me look. Another very impressive Hudson.




A supercharged MG (I think) - how very rare is that.....

You wanted to see how they fitted it all ? Your wish obliged.



What delightful styling - I'd have it anytime. Mini Humber Super Snipe.





Nice Club line-up.....and some desirables.



Very impressive - I'd imagine it would ride beautifully.







Austin Atlantic - built for the Americans. No wonder that they didn't sell all that many - but still unusual.......



...even the interior was less than ho hum ! Compare with Cadillac - should we ? This photo is yet to be inserted.......it will come.....

Yes, more of the Mercedes Benz line - up....



The Professor loves this Citroen model......



....and no, that's not the motor - merely the suspension components. Those round things - look familiar ?



....and yes, you are looking at the fabled Maserati V6 engine...not the most reliable of donks - so they say.



Regards Styria

A bit more of Eastern Creek - I really liked this Citroen Station Sedan, and also the spaciousness of the interior impressed me.....





Impressive looking early Mercedes Coupe - not a Club member.



I do have some more photos, but will have to find them. Regards Styria

Some very nice cars there and the Humber Vogue is certainly one of the better looking cars.

Styria great pics there mate thanks for sharing those with us!

Citroens look very impressive.

Good to see GB out and about again.

My Mum had a Humber Vogue I will have to show her the photo of the Vogue.

Cheers.
