    The NCA have got their way, and pushed the various car shows off the OPH open spaces to the Patrick White Lawns.

    No comparison. Patrick’s lawns are the pits. ‘Lawns’ is a misnomer. Lousy access, small, poorly maintained, up hill down dale, and a long time, if ever, since they were watered.

    Yet again, ACT motoring enthusiasts have been shafted.

    Not wrong. Reconciliation Place was always fantastic in previous years.

    Lousy access, small, poorly maintained, up hill down dale …

    Sounds like a perfect day out for the Landy!

    Rond Terraces was always good.

    I just think it is a bloody good photo. I love the AWM, know little about cars and didn’t move to Canberra until ’89 (and no, I’m not an AJ) so barely remember Canberra when it was green. Just a great photo is all.

    Ah, I see a man of some experience with Lucas electrics. (They’ll have to all leave early to be home before dark).

    They wouldn’t be British if they didn’t leak a bit of oil. Thats how you know they are genuine.

    I hope they all take their drip trays with them, we dont want an oil slick dripping into the lake……

    I’m going to miss this, but I would have loved to have had the chanse to come along in the Landy…

    I went to this last year and thought it was pretty interesting – and I’m certainly no car enthusiast. Good way to spend an hour on a Sunday morning.

    It’s either a Ford Zephyr or a Ford Consul around 1950 vintage. The Zephyr was 6 cylinder and the Consul 4 and both had the same body shape. The Zephyr was a great car.

    Trust me, the Patrick White Lawns, and the National Library of Australia – indeed the entire Parliamentary Zone – are located in Parkes, not Barton.
