Big Al’s Poker Run 2012 – Part 1

Big Al's Poker Run 2012The 2012 Big Al’s Poker Run was on again with cars assembling at the Charles Patterson park, Burswood for the start of the run. Big Al’s is always well worth attending, even if you’re not participating in the run itself, but to checkout the 100’s of great cars rolling up to the event. I’m sure some of the rarer cars only get let out once a year by their owners, and that would be to Big Al’s Poker Run.

Cars were rolling up all morning, and at about 12pm, Charles Patterson park resembled a giant parking lot of classic cars, most of them being V8…a most amazing sight really!

Weather was pleasant albeit slightly hot and facilities such as food and toilets were readily available. Location of the event was central, and access was easy along Great Eastern Highway with plenty of parking for visitors. This would have to be one of the largest and best organised car events held each year in Perth.

Being a large event I took so many photo’s I’ve decided to split the coverage of Big Al’s Poker Run into 3 parts.
