1950 Vauxhall Velox: Reader Jacob from India is currently in the process of restoring his 1950 model Vauxhall Velox. This car was originally owned and driven by his father for many years and Jacob also took his drivers license in the same car in 1968. Jacob is seeking suspension parts, door handles, badges & trim, lights and a few other parts to bring it back to it’s former glory. Anyone who can help him out with parts and advice can contact Jacob by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
The Triumph Car Club of WA held its All Triumph and Standard Day at Stirling Square, Guildford on November 13 2011. Weather was overcast but otherwise pleasant, together with a good turn out of cars and spectators I declare this car show was a success.
Stirling Square, as I’ve mention before is an excellent location for smaller car shows like this, with plenty of easy parking and facilities such as shops and toilets close by.
There was a nice range of cars on display though mostly it was classic Triumphs from the 1960’s and 70’s such as the TR6’s,TR7’s, Heralds along with Stag’s and bread and butter classics such as the 2500TC’s.
On with the show… I present photos from the All Triumph & Standard Day 2011.

The Austin Motor Vehicle Club of WA held its ‘All Austin Day’ at Stirling Square Guildford on the 2 October 2011. There was a good turnout of Austin motor vehicles from very early models to the later Leyland varity.
The event location was shared with the Holden Car Club Display Day, which was clever thinking on part of the organisers of both clubs, as this seemed to attract quite a bit of interest in the event as a whole. Certainly members of both clubs were taking a keen interest in each other cars.
The Stirling Square location was a good a selection of venue, although not particularly central, it does provide plenty of easy parking for spectators and facilities such as toilets and food is close by. It’s also a highly visible location, no doubt many people passing by stopped to see both car displays.
Overall, an excellent display.
