Australia Day long weekend at Allora ( a small town about 2 hrs west of here) I've been meaning to get there for years, and this time the planets aligned. A scorcher of a day, made us wish they'd reschedule it. Still worth it.

So here we go.

An Australian assembled RHD Hudson Hornet. First time ever I've seen the last of the Hudsons.



A stunning all original Cadillac V-16. One of five RHD versions and the sole survivor. It served the US Embassy in London during WW 2. The stories it could tell.........



Holt artillery tractor, circa 1918. The engine is armoured, the crew take their chances.



My pick: A Buick Century all weather phaeton. Sooooo want this one.



Austin A200FT. I remember these from my childhood.


Sunbeam Rapier. There's a few here in Australia, this is my second one.

It's well worth a drool. The owner claims it to be all original, down to the paint. Just about inaudible at idle too. And smooooooooth with it.

Cadillac were at the top of their game with this one.

Some real nice cars there, thanks for sharing.

I recently started collecting Lincolns.
The first is a 74 MarkIV, all original with a 460cid.
The next three are 79 MarkV Bill Blass models, 400cid.
 
The first three cars are from the same collector who brought them up from California, no rust. 

The last one is only a parts car, with only 100k km/60k miles. 
It sat out side for the last 7yrs in a storage lot, the frame and body are shot. A wealth of parts 
though.
