Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by Binga, Jan 27, 2008.

  1. The Victoriaon Hotrod Assocation hold their Hotrod show every year on the Australia Day long weekend in the beautiful Victoria Exhibition building.
    Here's some of the more HAMBer friendly pics.

    34 utes are even rare here,so it was great to see 2 in the same show.

    That is an awesome venue for a car show! If you must have it indoors, do it in a building with a little class.

    I love the utes. When I win a lottery, I will find one of those and have it shipped back to the US.

    Well, I visited the show too, same day as binga but a bit earlier. Jumped in the roadster and headed down there to see what there was to see. I got a leave pass from the wife, left her with the newborn and made my way down. got there just on opening and parked the roadster.

    a few that were parked out the front around the fountain.

    note the eddie thomas ( aussie ) speed equipment.

  15. Nice pix Flatoz.....thanx for sharin em !!

    Rat
     
  16. Thanks lads....you just saved me a few hours and about $50 I'd reckon!

    Glad I went camping for the weekend. I think I saw the same show 4 years ago...with the same cliche'd club displays!
     
  17. It's a fantastic venue for a car show, BUT, it's a horrible place to be a car show vendor on a hot day!!!

    My (then ) girlfriend and i sold clothing there about 8 years ago. It was 40+ deg. Celsius outside (over 104 F.) and over 45 deg.C (113deg.F) inside, and believe me, there is ZERO airflow in there!

    Nice pics though guys, always good to see what's going on "at home"!
    cheers
    Bret.
     
  18. Thanks Heaps Guys!

    =]
     
  19. thanks for the shots fellas. is that a for sale notice on that flamed 34 by any chance? and if it is did anyone get the details?

    Those Utes are just too cool....
     
  27. The RPU is out of action for a little while as I pulled the diff out of it on Saturday, bit of a knock knock noise in it.

    It has been sent off to the experts to be fixed, I hope, otherwise it will be an expensive wall hanging.
     
  28. The car was for sale with only a mobile number on the notice.
     
  29. Belongs to Gary Miller. Fresh 'glass body on the chassis that originally lived under Noel Harper's black '34 pick-up. It's got a mild flattie and all early Ford running gear.
     
  30. Yup, ours may not be the Grand National Roadster Show, but it is held in the most magnificent exhibition hall in all the world, The World Heritage Listed, Royal Exhibition Building, Melbourne Australia.

    [​IMG]

    This is in fact the longest running event to be held in this building opening over the Australia Day weekend for the past 48 years.

    As you've already seen there's a rolling car-show outside in the gardens all weekend long.
