15th January 2012
All American Day - Castle Hill.
Many thanks to Darryn F, Ray R, and Steve K for the photo's, and Scott R for the report.
The NSW Clubs first outing for 2012 was held on the 15th of January and as the name implies All American Cars gather on the concrete roof of the Castle Towers shopping mall this time each year.
As the weekend approached we were still unable to guess what the day
would be like, so, after a basically dry Saturday with a few clouds,
and the promise of a similar day on Sunday by the weather boffin’s,
a few of us decided to chance it and go.
Steve K in his 63 Lark Cruiser and myself in the 51 Champion made
arrangements to meet on route and travel together.
Another mate of ours joined our small convoy in his newly finished
Cobra, you know a small 2 seat car, big engine, and you guessed it,
Well as the story goes we headed off from our meeting point (still
no rain) but we had not driven more than 10 minutes when the heavens
opened up, and I mean big fat drops of rain, and lots of them.
As I was the lead car, I had thoughts of pulling into a side street
for our Cobra compatriot, but what was the point, he did not have a
roof to put up, so we pressed on.
By the time we arrived at the venue the rain had reduced to a steady
drizzle, an hour later it had stopped.
As far as Studes attending we were well down on previous years
(maybe the weather had something to do with it?)
After we were asked to do a bit of shuffling around by the
organizers we ended up in a good spot away from the rest of the
American brand X cars, which ended up being good to show off the
members Studes who did venture out.
It was pleasing to see 2 Studebakers from Newcastle join us on the
Cars & Members Attending
Well that is about all I can tell you about this particular day,
maybe you will attend next year.
