AUSTRALIA DAY DISPLAY - KING'S DOMAIN - JANUARY 2011


Hello everyone and a Happy New Year to you all! May the Humbers still keep rolling through 2011.

There were 3 Humbers on display at the Australia Day Celebration in King's Domain. We took the 1973 MK 111 Sceptre for its first outing in many months and, by pure coincidence, as we approached our destination, a Humber Vogue
suddenly appeared behind us.

This turned out to be Andy and Nel Heal in their lovely light green Series 3 complete with a very impressive double badge bar. Andy tells us he also has another badge bar just as full and impressive. Just how many places have you been in that Vogue, Andy!
Ron and Lorraine Forth in their Series Ambulance were parked only a few cars behind Andy and ourselves so we all found a nearby huge spreading oak tree and set up our tables and chairs.

The weather was perfect for an event such as this - no wind, limited sunshine and a comfortable temperature. It was probably the best Australia Day display I can remember for some years.
Approximately 450 classic and historic vehicles representing a large variety of makes & marques were lined up along the paths through the Domain - there were about 40 Chevrolets celebrating 100 years of the Chevrolet, an impressive display of various Singer models, plenty of Austins, Morrys, Fords, Mercedes, Holdens and many others.

The RACV had an Information Pavilion and display of early service vehicles.
Trade stands, food stalls and plenty of pedestrians wandering through to admire the vehicles made for an altogether thoroughly enjoyable and relaxing day. And Andy got another bumper badge to add to his collection!!

Both the Federation and RACV are to be congratulated on the organization of a very fine event. See photos in this Humberette.
