The 2022 Perth Classic Car Show (formerly known as the Shannon's Classic Car Show) was held on Sunday 1 May at Ascot Racecourse. I ran the show for the previous five years but gave it up last year. This year's show was organised by Premier Events.
Shannons, and their Goggomobil Dart, the show sponsor.

Edsel Ranger. The Edsel was a Ford brand that suffered from over-hyped expectations. They weren't bad cars per se but sales were disappointing and the brand was withdrawn after only three years (1956-59).
