2014 Big Al’s Poker Run is annual pilgrimage for car enthusiasts from all over Australia. This years event was again up to its usual high standard with stacks of interesting cars you just don’t normally see…anywhere.

The sun was hot and so were the cars!

Leyland P76 V-Eight Deluxe

The Leyland P76 – a full size car by Leyland Australia manufactured the early 1970?s which could compete with the big three (GMH, Ford and Chrysler). It had some advanced design features at the time but apparently suffered from quality control issues… then the whole project was suddenly axed due financial difficulties of the parent company, British Leyland.

I caught and photographed this excellent example at the local supermarket car park recently.
