Brockwell Run 9 November 2013

After so many recent washouts the Brockwell Run was blessed with beautiful sunshine. 

The new location at Fremantle Park was a great choice with much better access. Over a hundred cars attended the start.

1966 Renault Alpine

1954 Swallow Doretti. This is a really unusual car in Australia. Swallow Coachbuilding Company built sidecars in the 1920s and 30s before moving into sportscars in the years before the Second World War. Their most famous product was the SS Jaguar. After the war the SS association with Nazism led them to switch the model name with the company name resulting in the Jaguar SS. Swallow Sidecars however continued as a separate company and between 1954 and 1955 released this tidy little sportster.

I took the Karmann Ghia along

Stunning little Porsche 356 sportster

Probably the nicest Jaguar XK120

Jaguar E-Type, Triumph Spitfire and Morris Minor


1925 Vauxhall LM14/40



Of all the cars at the show I think this is my favourite.

Citroen DS

1936 Fargo and Bedford trucks

Chevrolet Impalas

Six Cadillacs

Line up from the bus museum

The SIVA club cars.

The run starts....

A very nice XK140

Citroen Traction Avant - still one of my favourte cars

A real rarity - an AC 2 Litre saloon. The only one in Perth.

Trucks away!

Aron's Honda S600 premiered at the show. Good work!
