Celebration of the Motorcar 2022

This weekend was a huge weekend for the motoring community with car shows in Kwinana, the Hot Rod Show in Claremont, Steaming Day at the Midland Workshops, a veteran motorcycle rally in Balingup, 'on the track' in Neerabup, American Car Show in Guildford, and Celebration of the Motorcar in Cottesloe. This is the show's 10th year since its revival in 2012. 

1960 Mercedes-Benz 190SL

1958 Mercedes-Benz 300D Adenauer limosine 

1954 Mercedes-Benz 300 Limosine formerly owned by the King of the Belgian Congo.

This was a fine vehicle and included in the boot the original leather travel cases that came with the car.

1958 Porsche 356A

1960 Porsche 356B

1934 Lancia Augusta. A new arrival from Victoria.

Alfa Romeo row

1965 Alfa Romeo 2600 Sprint

1934 SS (Swallow Sidecars) SS1 Tourer. When the Second World War started, the name SS gained an unwanted association with a certain German military organization so the SS Jaguar was renamed the Jaguar SS and the SS logo replaced with the famous Jaguar mascot. 

Jaguar Mark 8

The 1910 Deasy sidles in. For a 110 year old car it sounded really quiet and smooth.

It's impressive to see pld Edwardian cars out and about at shows like this. They are under appreciated and don't get nearly enough showing. 

1970 Lanica Stratos

The very small Edwardian section

The car that got the world moving. 1913 Model T

The iconic Aston-Martin DB6.

And the DB6's modern successor - this piece of sh*t.

The magnificent 1931 Cadillac Phaeton.
