Sorry OD, I had 3 kids screaming at me that the 30 foot high inflatable slide looked like "way more fun than silly old cars Dad !" so the pic-taking time was very limited. Little heathens, too much of their mother's influence there.

Well maybe he's hungry?....looks like you had a great day as well as sunshine, pizza and ice cream...coffee too if the need arrised.
The more I look at that maroon late '60s mark 4 the more I like it....big wheels but they're tucked in instead of the usual around these parts where the vehicle is jacked up waaaaay too high to accommodate them - I've always liked the "in the weeds with big wheels" look.
That MB panelvan looks interesting too...yah don't see those around here.

Well it's that time of year again, town fair is on in Diamond Creek. It's a couple of months earlier this year because last year we got flooded out and postponed until November.

Anyway, the American metal was back again with a few new shinies to look at.

Please enjoy . . . . . . . .












And what car show would be complete without a BIG set of fins somewhere in the mix . . . .





Hope you like them.

Oh man, now you went and did it - a '70 cougar in butterscotch...my last 1:1 fun car, except mine was in medium green poly{oem color}. Loved that 351c and the sequencial taillights. It seems no one has the plastic spacer pieces the go between the front fender tips to the fender...these make the tip trim line up with the hood trim. Wrong rims on that one though, but hey, it's his car.
Sweet T-bird there{'62} ..I'm in the process of looking into a mid '60s bird for another "fun" car again...midlife crisis calls!
That must be a real hassle having to convert the older US cars to RH drive...
Sweet pics, thanks for sharing again!

My pleasure guys.
If you take a close look O-D half of these cars are LH drive, we can keep classic cars that way here.

Cheers, D

I saw that, just thinking it must be a real hassle to move everything over for your neck of the woods...I know it would for over here to convert to LH drive.

Thanks guys! I'm a petrol head it's true-much to my wife's chagrin!

I was particularly surprised to see the Riviera as they're rare as hens' teeth down under!

At the major US car meet's, in Denmark, there's usually 2-3 of the '63-'65 Rivieras. Rare, but not as rare, as hens' teeth
