This year marks the 60th anniversary of the Morris Minor, Land Rover and the Rover P3 which were all introduced in 1948,at the first Earls Court Motor Show, London, after the World War 11 and all of them went onto be become legends and very collectible cars.
The Canberra Terribly British Day committee intends to mark the significant diamond anniversary of these and the Austin-Healey Sprite and Jaguar XK150 which celebrate their Golden jubilee in 2008 by making a special feature of them at the display.
Committee Chairman, Tony Redman, said this year’s display will also feature a 1923 Foden steam lorry coming from Melbourne, courtesy of the Royal Australian Navy. Now in the care of HMAS Cerberus’s Navy Steam Club, the Foden (pictured) was restored by Navy apprentices.
This years display looks like being the biggest in recent times with an expected 250 vehicles, many from interstate, for the public to inspect.
