Wink Canberra Summernats

I have often heard about the meet,, have seen some photos, heard Michel talking about this fabulous event, and eventually I managed to attend the one open now. Plenty of noise, huge crowds, plenty of dust when the wind was blowing, and an absolute eye opener. So, I thought I would share with members of TK without too amny comments, unless necessary. Regards Styria



One of my modern favourites - very impressive.

On the slightly related subject of hot cars, often domestic which may have appeared at a Summernats in years gone by ... please understand that I'm no expert on this type of event, have a look at the following, which I will elaborate on in the next post:

I believe my next door neighbour is extremely talented. Visit his page on Facebook - search Custom Wrecks.

He knows a lot about cars and produces this amazing work!

Wow they're great scale models! Dunno why you'd bother doing a modern Monaro wreck tho??

I should head back to the Nats next year, it's a amazing event!

Modern Monaro was probably a customer order. Most are to specific order.
