Back alley Rover 3500 P6 waiting for restoration

Rover 3500 P6 Mark II
A Rover 3500 V8 P6 Mark II. I found this green 1970’s Rover down a back alley, and looks to be a restoration project in waiting. That’s shade cloth covering the vehicle…it won’t stop rain, but I guess it will reduce the interior from being fried by the hot sun.

These Rover 3500’s somehow remind me of British PM, Margaret Thatcher, but perhaps it was Rover P5 model she was fond of rather than the P6.

Brockwell Memorial Run 2011

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.Cadillacs lined up for Maurice Brockwell Run 2011

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
