100 year old cars and bikes rally across Australia
This week, a group of old cars and bikes are in the middle of a rally across Australia. They are travelling 4100kms (2547 miles) in 20 days from Perth to Sydney. Many of the cars have one or two cylinder motors, and steam cars are present too. Here is the website for the rally: http://www.vccansw.org/2012/vcca_2012.htm
This rally is to commemorate the first crossing of OZ via car, done by a Brush auto back in 1912. Here is a link to some photos of a local Brush that goes on the Alturas run. Note the wood axle, frame and other bits in this lightweight car. It must have been a tough drive back in ‘12.
As they left Perth on the weekend, Andrew Repton took a series of photos and sent them to me to publish. Thanks Andrew for the photographs!
