The FE FC Holden Car Club of Australia held its 14th Nationals meeting, with the location being set in Perth.
The club arranged it to happen over the Easter break with various events for club members, including a public show and shine day which was held at Supreme Court Gardens on Saturday 7 April …which is where I attended to take these photos.
A great turn out of cars…Many members cars were driven from interstate, which is quite a long and challenging trip. I’d imagine this would be quite an adventure over the Nullarbor and certainly some Slim Dusty CD’s would help pass the time.
The event was well organised and centrally located. A great show!
