Toyota Celica LT 2000: Toyota’s iconic sports coupe started life a long time ago… and is still going. This red LT is a great example of a first generation Celica from the 1970’s. A well styled car. Awesome!
The annual Brockwell Memorial Run is not exactly a car show, but it’s a run or rally as the name suggests and a tribute to the late Maurice Brockwell who was a collector of fine motor vehicles and an active member in the Perth motoring community for a long time.
The run entails entrants meeting up at the at the Cannington Civic Centre car park for starting, then proceeding up the coast finally ending at the Motor Museum, Whiteman Park.
Though the event was open to virtually anyone with a car who wished to enter the run, most of the cars I noticed were ‘classic vehicles’ which was great to see. Many gawkers checking the iron here, including me! I managed to take these photos of the participating cars before they took off.
Proceeds of the event go towards supporting the Motor Museum of WA

As part of the 2011 Targa West Rally, the Perth super stage at Langley Park saw a display of interesting historic racing cars and cars from other car clubs which was combined with the rally event on Sunday 28 August. Amongst the car clubs there were: Vintage Sports Car Club of WA, HSV Owners Club of WA, WA Toyota Car Club, Street Car Racing Association of WA & Triumph Sports Owners Association of WA.
Overall this was a very well organised and planned event by Targa West with a well-chosen central location that was quite accessible. In addition, it had plenty of facilities such as food and toilets provided for the spectators and competitors. Best of all, entry was free!
