Tony and In The Taratory have sent us a swag of more photos from the weekend’s Auto Italia show and shine in the Parliamentary Triangle. Tony had this to say:
I was visiting your site tonight and saw “Poptop’s” selection of Auto Italia car show photos from last Sunday 7 April, in front of Old Parliament House. “Poptop” was lamenting the fact that he had arrived when the event was packing up, and that Italian cars appear to come only in silver or red. I am delighted to report that they come in all colours and glorious shapes. I was there earlier in the day and the vehicles on display represented a veritable art gallery of Italian coachwork from Ferrari, Lamborghini, Alfa Romeo, Maserati, Lancia, Fiat and others plus a selection of motorcycles and scooters such as Vespa . Probably shouldn’t mention this, but sitting unobtrusively behind the trees (on the Pork Barrel restaurant side) was one of the new McLaren MP4-C’s driven down from Qld. As that particular car is from England, the owner was worried if he put it on display he might have been beaten up by the Ferrari chaps. It was stunning. I’m sure they would have welcomed him with open arms. There were many interesting characters there and I was delighted to see Msgr John Woods, Administrator of the Catholic Archdiocese of Canberra and Goulbourn (and Canberra Raiders chaplain), giving his seal of approval to a Lamborghini Diablo 6.0 litre V12. Not often you get the chance to see and photograph a Catholic priest kneeling down with “the devil” but the Lambo, in “clerical black”, would make an interesting addition to the clergy car pool.
Here are their photos:
