Picnic at Ross

Passing showers were not enough to deter the dozen VCCA members and the 400 odd cars from exhibiting at “The Picnic at Ross” on the Football Grounds on Sunday 18th of May. The ever increasing range of rare and unseen motor vehicles continues to amaze the constant flow of onlookers. One make clubs were well represented, with the variation from Vintage to 80’s classics. An ever increasing range of rare body styles that were not made available to the Australian Buyer in the form of American imports were on show. There seems to be an emerging presence of modified Classic Light Trucks and Pickups which have been much overlooked in past years, but good to see.
Despite the lower amount of entrants, mostly due to the bad weather across the north of the state, there was a good variety of Aussie motoring.

    Comment of the day.
    I took my 12/50 Duckback Alvis and we drove the whole way from Carrick with the hood down in the rain absolutely magnificent!! Got to the gate and a bloke said: “have you been driving in the rain” to which I nearly replied, “no, we have just been to the car wash”. Whilst there was lots of modernish stuff, there was a distinct lack of vintage stuff and no veterans. I think I had the earliest car there being 1923. Pity about the rain, but the roads we took to get there were superb.
