    All British Display Day 2012

    Every year the Association of British Car Clubs hold an event in conjunction with an arts and crafts fair at The King's School at Parramatta in Sydney's west. Somebody told me there were 1,900 cars there, but I'm not sure how accurate that was.

    We went again this year (Sunday 26 August) and I thought I might post a few photos. Sorry to be a bit vague on what some of the models are, but maybe a more knowledgeable forum member can fill in the gaps. I've only got six ready so far but I'll post some more later.

    Photos 1 and 2 are of an Alvis raced by "Phil" Garlick at the Maroubra Speedway in the 1920s. There is more information on this car here: http://carclubs.shannons.com.au/alviscarclub/news/

    Photos 3 and 4 are some more Alvises.

    Photo 5 is a Hillman Hunter Royal.

    Photo 6 is another Hillman. I'm not sure what model it is, but it's probably a Minx.

    Very cool photos!

    It's a nice change to see old cars instead of new cars.

    I'm going to check out my college's Italian car meet this year again, they always have a meet around this time of the year.

    Last year I saw an Alfa Romeo 8C and a Alfa Romeo Montreal.
