Celebration of the Motorcar - Sunday 29th November 2020


Celebration of the Motorcar is Perth's premier prestige and exotic car event showcasing a hand picked selection of exotic, rare and classic motorcars. 140 vehicles were on display in the beautiful Cottesloe Civic Centre, overlooking the Indian Ocean.

Wood bodied Bentley 'shooting break'

1929 Bentley 3 litre

1954 Chevrolet Corvette

Ford Thunderbird, Lincoln and Corvette

2020 Mclaren Senna GTR

The Mclaren only arrived in Perth a few days before the show. It received the people's choice award for modern sportscar.

Far more appealing to me is this 1976 Maserati Merak.

As in previous years, I helped out with the set up and marshaling. One of the Bentley's drives in.

Alvis has entered the building!
