Motorclassica 2013


Another year, another Motorclassica what else can you say - a great event but, unfortunately from my point of view many of the cars were far too modern. I would have liked to see more veteran and vintage cars and less of the modern sports cars and even new cars. I thought that this show was to be for classic cars not modern cars.

I can fully understand why these cars appeal to the younger generation but if they do not cater to the "Old Grumpies" like myself then I may well stop going. Even the cars outside were mostly from the sixties on. Some cars were purporting to be something that they were not, for example the Bentley Special looked more like a 1925 open sports tourer than a 1958 car. This would probably be something that would catch the attention of Vic Roads!

The auction of Classic, Veteran, and Vintage cars brought some interesting surprises. Many cars brought a fair value and some even going relatively cheaply while others I must admit for me, did not seem to be good value for money. It must be all in the eye of the beholder, but I am afraid they would not have got my money. Maybe two or more bidders got locked into a fight and it was a case of the last man standing.

I arrived very early before the gates were open and was able to see a lot of the show before the crowds got too big. When we were coming away at lunchtime the people wanting to get through the turnstile would have been waiting about 20-30 minutes. It is good to see that classic car shows can pull such a volume of people.

Well I guess I will have to wait till next year to see if we get more of the older cars that I much prefer.
