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.

1934 MG NG racecar against the backdrop of show sponsor, Shannon's Insurance.

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.
