A long weekend, bumper crowds and some more gorgeous early spring weather – everything seemed to align for the fourth annual Motoring Expo at the Australian Motorlife Museum on Sunday.
More than 1500 people and almost 100 cars turned out to the Integral Energy recreation Park at Kembla Grange, taking advantage of the beaming sun to proudly show off their wheels and, probably, gaze longingly at some others.
“The big drawcard was our 1904 Innes,” said curator Wendy Mudell of the vintage headline attraction.
One of just a handful in Australia, the car is the latest acquisition of the museum. Previously owned by HR Arnott, of Arnott’s Biscuits, the Innes was one of the most popular attractions at yesterday’s expo.
“We also had a vintage Alfa Romeo, and lots of others from all over the place. Just a lot of things you don’t see everyday.”
Motoring nuts came from as far afield as Newcastle, Bathurst and Ulladulla for the show, which wrapped up with a trophy presentation in the afternoon.
