2005 Auto one Classic Car Show - Whiteman Park - Perth, Western Australia

On Sunday 20th of March 2005 in Perth, Western Australia the 2005 Auto One Classic Car Show was held. The theme for this years Auto one Classic Car Show was "Cars of the stars". Judging by the amount of effort some of the entrants put into their
display it was clear that the theme was a popular one. Among the stand out displays was Ford Prefect of Hitch Hikers Guide to the
Galaxy fame, the Rolls Royce Yellow Phantom II movie set, the psychedelically painted mini once owned by Beatles star George Harrison and the
M.A.S.H. 4077th extravaganza. The M.A.S.H. 4077th display went on to win "Best Themed Display".

This year saw the Auto one Classic Car Show move from its previous location within Whiteman Park at The Village to Mussel Pool. The Village
was a great location but Mussel Pool is a larger area. The expanded area gave more room for entrants to display their wares. With around 1000
vehicles on the extra space was welcomed. The trees and native vegetation gave a nice backdrop to the event with the Lyre bird visiting the M.A.S.H. 4077th display a nice touch.

Whiteman Park was named after one of the former land owners, Lew Whiteman (1903 - 1994). It was created in the 1970's and is over 4200 hectares in size. It is now owned by the W.A... Planning Commission. Other attractions at Whiteman Park include;
Bus Preservation Society of W.A..;
Perth Electric Tramway Society;
Motor Museum of W.A..;
Bennett Brook Railway (run by the W.A.. Light Rail Preservation Association;
Revolutions - A transport heritage interpretation centre; and
Tractor Museum.
