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

Classic & Awesome Rides Show 2011

Classic & Awesome Rides Show 2011Yes, it’s a funny name for a car show but the name actually spells C.A.R.S (Classic & Awesome Rides Show).

The show was organised by the Monaro Car Club of WA and held at the Trinity Playing Fields, Waterford on 23 October 2011. Interestingly, it was open to any car club to display their vehicles at this show, and there was a good line up of Fords, Dodges, Holden and Chevy’s from other clubs at this event. It was generally dominated by American and Aussie muscle cars with an emphasis on Holdens and Chevy’s though I did see a VW Beetle.

The show was reasonably centrally located… in Waterford, albeit biased to South of the River, with plenty of easy parking on side streets and inside the venue also. Food and drink was available with a host of vendors selling related items and lots of toilets if you needed to go.

I’d consider this, one of the better organised car shows of the year, even with $10 admission fee, this was well worth attending and excellent value. I found the venue to be quite pleasant with grassed lawns and shady trees, with the cars well laid out for easy inspection and photography.

Check out the list of car clubs at end of this post that made the event.

I’ll definately be back next year for the 2012 show!
