Leyland Mini Clubman: Clubman style Mini from the 1970’s. Not as stylish as the original Mini’s, but had more room under the bonnet and is still a great little car. This one has the front wheel disc brakes, with minilite mags. Also has a GT badge on the side suggesting this a Clubman GT specced car.
The original pocket rocket captured at the local supermarket car park…a Morris Mini Cooper S, or at least it looks very much like one.
It has the twin fuel tanks, front disk brakes and bumper over riders just like a real Cooper S, but is devoid of all badging… so who knows maybe it’s really a Mini Deluxe dressed up to look like an ‘S’.
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

This car show was presented by the Australian Street Rod Federation and Salvation Army as part of the Salvo’s Christmas hamper appeal at the Cannington Greyhounds Station Street carpark on 23 October 2011. The venue of Cannington Greyhounds carpark was certainly not the most visually appealing, however the quality of vehicles in attendance was surprisingly good.
Entry for spectators was a gold coin donation, whilst those displaying their cars made a donation of non perishable food. All proceeds going to charity.
The venue itself was certainly not central, thus this show would appeal to many of the south of the river car enthusiasts. The show had an impromptu feel about it but was otherwise well organised, with some food available such as a sausage sizzle and drinks. Also there were toilets albeit located some distance away at the the Cannington hall. Plenty of spectator parking was available in and outside the venue.
As mentioned above, the quality of the vehicles at this show were of a high standard, in particular I liked the light blue ’57 Chev, the ’53 Cadillac and the Dodge Charger R/T.
A good show, and hope it returns for next year.
