The Western Australian branch of the Vauxhall Owners Club held a display of vehicles at Manners Hill Park, Peppermint Grove on the 25 September. This display included a wide range of Vauxhall cars ranging from the 1920’s to the 1970’s with some of Vauxhall’s classic models well represented.
Though not exactly a central location for a car show, it certainly was an interesting one, with some of Perth’s (and Australia’s) most exclusive real estate nearby, and if anything, the view to the Swan River was stunning. Parking was easy and there were some facilities quite close such as a coffee shop and toilets which was pleasing.
The event was quite well organised and I was pleased to see nearly all cars had a written description including the year, model, engine type and other information which was very helpful for those who are non Vauxhall literate.
Nice work Vauxhall Owners Club, thanks for a great display!
