RACV - AOMC National Motoring Heritage Day - 20 May 2012

Despite a dreary rather damp start to this day we set off to meet up with any other Humber enthusiasts to travel to Yarra Glen racecourse, one of the sites for Heritage Day. We were very disappointed that we weren't in our Humber as it didn't want to run at all well and we didn't want to chance it, especially with the uncertain weather.
However, we were delighted to see Neil and Kathleen Hiho in their Series 4 Super Snipe. They had come all the way from South Gippsland for the Heritage Day, which I think is a great effort on their part and, as it turned out, they had the only Humber at the event. I only wish we could have brought our Humber too to keep the Super Snipe company.
It was a very interesting day with many different car clubs represented. We were pleased to see so many veteran cars there this year as well as plenty of vintage vehicles too. Now we have a veteran of our own, sadly not a Humber, we are developing a keen interest in these much older cars. If you know of an early veteran Humber for sale (in going condition, we don't need any more "basket" cases), please let us know as we would be interested.
The four of us had a good wander around catching up with people we knew and checking out the cars and other wares on display. The helicopter was busy giving some visitors a fine aerial view of the Yarra Valley and a shuttle bus took others to Historic Gulf Station and a Sunday market nearby. The mobile animal farm, play equipment and face painting entertained the younger visitors.

By midday the clouds had cleared to allow the sun through and the threat of rain had gone. By mid afternoon we decided that it was time to head home. After saying goodbye to Neil and Kathleen we set off, tired but happy that it was a day well spent.
