Melbourne City Council decimates Australia Day motor showWritten by Bill Hunter
This decision had not received sufficient publicity for me to have received it. And I turned up with my backpack full of cameras and lenses and a portable camping stool, only to find there was only one short walk to cover the whole display.
The rest of the celebration was given over to street marching by several social and cultural organizations in the city. This, of course, was magnificent, but outside my terms of reference.
The vehicles on display were undeniably magnificent. This article shows those which I most fancied.
Motormarques came into being over 10 years ago. The site contains thousands of brilliant images and stories of automobiles that stand out from bland, mass-produced transport that you see every day. Our home team of 5 photographers come from Europe, Britain, Australia and New Zealand. We mainly feature cars that have distinguished themselves in competition - from Goodwood and Nurburgring to local club-run sprints and hillclimbs.Website: www.motormarques.com
