What a superb open day. A storm the previous evening got us worried. However, in typical Qld style the following morning kicked off a scorcher of a day. The cars started to roll up at around 8.30 am. Heaps of Mustangs, Dodges, Chevs as well as good old Aussie classics from early mainline utes to Murrays' fuel 5.0 injected Torana put on a great static display. A nicely pampered Aston Martin and the odd Peugeot gave the car show a nice continental/British feel. Luckily Madonnas' Benz was at the other end of the grounds or people may have got the wrong idea! Don't mention the war!
Glen and Jake had the barbie fired up early. Cold drinks and snags on a roll kept everybody happy. The good ol' Quick Draw McGraws started cranking out some cool tunes at around 10.00am. In the background Darryl had a crowd gathering as he folded up a lower door skin panel for a Falcon XK. Later in the day the mechanics cranked out some cool tunes of their own with a fire up of Hughs' Cobra and Johns' Chev powered EK ute. We even dragged out the old BSA shooting star and got her going. Needed a cool drink after that effort.
All in all it was a great day with a huge turnout. A big thankyou to all who attended. Also thankyou to the various clubs who made cars available, notably the Mustang Owners Club of Aust QLD branch, The Northern Districts Rodders and The Asphalt Demons.
Looking forward to next years show. It'll be a biggy celebrating ten years of Gasoline Alley.....stay tuned
