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!

Big Al’s Poker Run 2012 – Part 1

Big Al's Poker Run 2012The 2012 Big Al’s Poker Run was on again with cars assembling at the Charles Patterson park, Burswood for the start of the run. Big Al’s is always well worth attending, even if you’re not participating in the run itself, but to checkout the 100’s of great cars rolling up to the event. I’m sure some of the rarer cars only get let out once a year by their owners, and that would be to Big Al’s Poker Run.

Cars were rolling up all morning, and at about 12pm, Charles Patterson park resembled a giant parking lot of classic cars, most of them being V8…a most amazing sight really!

Weather was pleasant albeit slightly hot and facilities such as food and toilets were readily available. Location of the event was central, and access was easy along Great Eastern Highway with plenty of parking for visitors. This would have to be one of the largest and best organised car events held each year in Perth.

Being a large event I took so many photo’s I’ve decided to split the coverage of Big Al’s Poker Run into 3 parts.

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

All Ford Day 2011

The annual All Ford Day 2011 was held at Bassedean Oval on the 30 October, with a terrific turn out of cars and spectators. Weather was great, everyone was smiling and declare the event a *winner*.

Previous All Ford Days have also been held at the Bassendean Oval, and this location has proved to be ideal for a large event like this. Car parking is also quite good with plenty of parking in the side streets and the nearby shopping centre car park (where I parked).

Entrance fee was $10 for adults which is quite reasonable considering the size of the event, you could easily spend all day admiring the cars and catching up with ford friends, or even haggling a purchase of a classic ford!

There was a wide range of cars on display, from the vintage model A’s to modern BA falcons including cars from Australia, US and UK. Though as much as I like the Aussie muscle cars such as the Falcon GT’s…I really do take a preference to the American Fords of the late 50’s and early 60’s such as the Galaxies and Fairlanes, but most of all.. I love the Thunderbirds!

With so many great cars on the display, it’s difficult to choose which cars to photograph and to present for my review,,however here is ‘small’ selection of cars at the show.

Check the list of many Ford car clubs in attendance below.

 And now photos of the All Ford Day 2011!

WA Hot Rod and Street Machine Spectacular 2011

The 15th annual WA Hot Rod and Street Machine Spectacular was on again over the weekend August 27 & 28, 2011. The venue again was the Burswood Dome which has been the home for this event for quite a few years, although with talk of the Dome itself being subject to redevelopment plans, the future of the event here was uncertain. However, for the time being, plans for the Dome have been put on hold so the show is safe for another year, at least. With the uncertainty of the Domes’ future an issue, the organisers chose this year’s theme of ‘Destruction’.

Parking at the Dome was tight as it has been in previous years shows…but if you were lucky you could score spot near a classic car such as a Ford Galaxy, 56, 57 Chev or Mustang, but no luck this time for me, in fact it was way over the road for a parking spot.

The entrance to the Dome had a line up of American and Aussie muscle cars to whet your appetite for the main show. Though not part of the official show, these cars are certainly worth an eyeball, and is surprising to see what classics roll up…as there is a steady flow muscle cars arriving and departing all the time, and is well worth waiting around to see what cars show up.

Things I liked about this show:

  • Awesome display of exhibitors cars & interesting display of spectator cars at entrance
  • Centrally located and easy to get to at Burswood Dome
  • Open over 2 days
  • Show is under cover
  • Food and drink available with plenty of seating & toilets

And things I didn’t like:

  • The destruction theme was a little negative I thought and perhaps to those spectators who didn’t read the show guide, probably wondered what all the dynamite, hammers and wrecking balls has to do with hotrods and muscle cars. A little different from freedom type themes such as beach, 50’s, rock n’ roll as you’d expect for this genre. Not to mention the thought of any associated destruction next to some these works of art is almost sacrilege.
  • The band, Fossil Rock whilst ok, I didn’t think got into the groove. I prefer more rockabilly, Hank Williams and early Elvis style…and a real double bass please!
