Picnic at Hanging Rock 2013

DSC_0043-1

We headed out to the annual Picnic at Hanging Rock show held in Mt. Macedon Victoria. This event showed once again why it is one of the most anticipated Classic Car Shows of the year with a turn out not seen in a very long time. Over 5000 cars and  hundreds of bikes made the trip up to the show. The event was open to anything 25 years or older and the variety of cars this year was simply amazing.

One of my favorites from the show was this early 70’s Dodge Challenger. This car has been one of my child hood favorites and this is an example which shows why it is such an appealing car.

This RT10 Dodge Viper was something I have not seen since the Motor Show back in the early 90’s. I have never seen a first gen viper on the road and this example was kept in absolutely immaculate and untouched condition.

Another HQ GTS, but this was by far my favourite at the show. The colour, stance and craftsmanship was a real highlight.

A neat Mazda RX3 made an appearance. I was surprised to only see a handful or so of Rotaries at the show. I thought there would have been more of a Rotary presence. Hopefully next year a few more come out for the show.

The Australian Starion club brought out a few cars for the show. One car even ventured across from South Australia to make this meet one of the biggest congregations of Mitsubishi Starions in the country. There were even two super rare JDM versions.

A JZA70 was even part of the group. I think next year we will have to include the Win Garage MA70 or GA70 Supras to the group.

Due to the sheer number of cars at the meet and the lack of phone reception in the area it took the Win Garage crew almost 3 hours to find our friends tucked away in one of the many corners of the show.

A few friends of Win Garage made the trip up for the show. Bernie brought out his immaculate XY.
