It’s the first weekend of summer!

What should we see? What should we do?

Woe is all unless the RiotACT hive mind can come up with some entertainment options in the comments!

What’s Your opinion?

The next offtopic commenter is going into moderation.

Events please, not arguments on global car production.

We are talking 60’s era cars here, hence they are British. And as for Triumph, they no longer make cars. MG also have disappeared in recent years. I would still consider Aston Martin and Jaguar to be British since they are still built in the UK. Thats like saying Holden is an American car because they are a part of GM. Globalisation is a bitch. If you are disgusted that TVR is now owned by a Russian, then maybe this event (or any for that matter) isn’t for you.

H1NGO it’s interesting to note that of all the marques you mentioned, none are now British. (Triumph cars is owned by BMW)

johnboy 10:47 am 04 Dec 08

ontopic please people.

Nambucco Deliria 10:42 am 04 Dec 08

Does this mean that thousands of British ‘Lager Louts’ are about to descend on Canberra to see the cars, boosting the local economy as they go?

poptop 10:41 am 04 Dec 08

I blame Canberra Goss for the contents of that photo.

Their power is . . . awesome!

Don’t forget to drive your most petrol-hungry vehicles to the Walk against Warming.

THIS SATURDAY, 6th December
City Walk (near the fountain)

H1NG0 10:39 am 04 Dec 08

Further to that, it will be on the Sunday.

H1NG0 10:37 am 04 Dec 08

The Terribly British car show is on on the lawns of the Parliamentary Trangle near the National Library. Lots of great classic British cars to be seen such as MG, Triumph, Aston Martin and Jaguar. Come along if that is your thing.
