National Motoring Heritage Day, Perth 2013

Sunday 19th May 2013 was Australian National Motoring Heritage day and auto and motoring clubs all around the country celebrate with rallies and shows. Once again the Veteran Car Club put on a display at Langley Park in Perth.

With an astonishing loud rumble an American La France makes its dramatic entrance.

Vintage 1920s. ... and a Fiat.

BSA motorcycles and an early Franklin.

A rare Franklin with its air-cooled four cylinder engine.

Maxwell and Dennis fire engine.

The American La France. America La France specialised in trucks and fire engines but in the pre-First World War period some were converted into two seat roadsters like this beast. Everything about the car is enormous - the huge straight six engine, massive cast iron wheels, truck tyres and chain drive.

America La France survives to this day manufacturing fire engines and emergency service vehicles.
