sunny 24 °C

It's always good to look at local advertising posters as you travel. The one that caught my attention near Hobart was for a Classic Car Show.
It was a lovely sunny day as we wandered up and down admiring the shiny paint work and unusual cars.
There's not a lot more to say, except to let you indulge in the photos of pretty vehicles...

A car that I grew up with (although I never used to like the smell of the leather!)... Rover TC 2000

A car my Dad grew up with... MGB

a stick so you can hear where the wheel is, as the bonnet is still too high
