Looks like a fun trip. Any more pics of the cars in the field. Looked like a cool and relaxing place for a gathering. Any videos of the locals telling about their cars.

Looks to me like the Aussies have a better handle on "Traditional" than we have here. I've not been to a show or cruise in recent memory where there was such an impressive collection of REAL HOT RODS. That was like a step back in time to about 1950 and the Pasadena Relibilty Run.

I'm living in the wrong town.

Looks like a top weekend, sure wish I could've been there. I'll just stick to my sandy beaches and non-trad hot rods...
