Oh goodie, a car documentary, why not watch it, I could always learn something more about our Aussie car history!
Australian vintage cars were part & parcel of my childhood, we had all the old beauties. We tinkered on them, drove them & loved them. My favourite was the EH, Uncle Lyall had two wagons. These were to start off my driving years, at the tender age of 13, while on a farm. I’ve had a long line of cars since then. But my preference these days is with old VW’s, with one previously owned Beetle, being my best baby ever. There’s definitely a few motoring bits in my gene pool with my love of cars & motorbikes..
Surprisingly, time passes in a blink. I am transfixed by early 1900’s black ‘n’ white footage of trail blazing pioneers, early female mechanics, vintage cars & groovy fashions- A couple of cute dogs too! The outback bush scenery, is wild & rugged, seeing early SA footage has me in stitches. All this left me wanting more, I can’t wait to watch the other two parts.
