We spent a few days in Echuca and quite by accident found there was a Hot Rod and Custom Car Show in town.

great shots CC, classic USA rides down under. It would take me awhile to get used to driving on the wrong side of the street.

Sharp, clean and crisp, CC - and terrific compositions in such a public event. The chopped Merc is especially cool.

Top shots, CC. I know how difficult it is to get good shots in these circumstances and yours are great.

most of the best classics come from the USA, you have such a rich history of auto manufacturing.... yes I would stuggle on left hand drive!

thanks Jer, I never actually made it to the show as such, these were what I came across in the streets, most would slow down when they spotted me with the camera




its like people & birds right! .... as long as you get the eyes (headlamps) in focus the rest can be forgiven ... missed this one a little, but a cool auto

Very nice shots Cee Cee. The old Fords are sweet, the T Bucket, the coupes, and especially the Vicky.

Were they converted to right hand drive there or were they shipped that way to Australia?

Classics!

Fine series, Cee Cee! Love that old Detroit iron, especially when it's chopped, dropped and finished with great bodywork and custom paint.
TFS!

hey Bob I think a lot of those early models were factory RH drive models imported into this country as we had no car manufacturing in those days. These days people ship them out here and do a conversion. I would emagine there wouldn't be too many of those original RH drives still sitting in some farmers shed waiting to be discovered.
cheers
