IIRC, this was my first rally (as a spectator, not an exhibitor). All my photos were of buses; I wish now that I had taken more of some of the other aspects.
I am sure that there was a powder-blue Ford Zephyr police van, and an ambulance. Was there a hearse? I see a glimpse of a Rolls Royce saloon: perhaps there as a wedding car?
The two b&w photos of Flxble Clippers have been posted already, to a thread on that type. See
Perhaps others were at that rally and could add more photos? Or perhaps just list the participating vehicles that year. Many must have been well-known rally regulars.
I have five colour views to put up. This first one was taken principally for the Flxible Clipper. Have I identified Grenda 71 correctly: was it an MC8? Notice at far left a Rolls Royce (Silver Wraith?) and what I believe is a late 1950s Standard Vanguard ute.
Here are the only three photos which I took at the Sun.29.11.92 rally, still at International Harvester (Dandenong, Vic.).
I suspect that I had only a fleeting visit, as I was in the throes of end-of-year mop up at work, and was packing to head to central America before Christmas.
Two buses were from the Masterton fleet; AFAIK the next is kept in the Driver historic fleet, and is a rally regular; in the distance is one of the popular Flxible Clippers. I know nothing about the Ford, but suspect that it is from the collection kept near Longwarry.
I wasn't at this rally (Sun.25.11.00); the photo is from my (now deceased) regular contributor David White.
Clayton, the former drive-in site (instant edit to use Ray's information).
I had been saving it to kick start a thread on police vehicles (divisional vans and patrol cars), to follow vendor vans, ambulances, hearses and fire appliances, but I haven't reached by desired quantity yet.
The 1961 Falcon was formerly a divvy van, with a fibreglass box on the tray. The 1960 Zephyr looks more UK than Australia, but the colour is Victoria powder blue. The ambulance may have been on duty rather than exhibit, but there are glimpses of two more ambulances beside it.
