Nah Pottsy, if that’s what is is they would have all had their car covers on ;D

I was in a rush as they were getting ready to leave. In fact the oldest one was reversing out as I took the shot

volkswagen-schwimmwagen

On that, I spotted this, which I think is supposed to be a replica of a Kubelwagen (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Volkswagen_K%C3%BCbelwagen), a few years ago at Coollie Rocks On.

I must say I like the gear knob ;D

Yeah, Bob Durrington in the pink 59 and some others from the Cadillac club.
We went on one run with them maybe, 3 years ago.

The mad bastards only do 80 in a 100 zone and we went home smelling of mothballs.
Nice folks, but I aged about 10 years that sunday.

They were all parked up at the outback motel in Winton thismorning. Lucky the streets are nice and wide.

It does not matter how wide the streets are in Winton, they can still back out and back into you, even when you are parked on the other side of the street. I am speaking from experience.

Quite stunning in that colour. Her younger sister has been getting around Townsville in the same colour. For sale now. If only my wallet wasn't so anorexic....
