Queanbeyan Swap Meet 2014 - Fords


 Only Falcon XABC Coupe on the day - but it was a ripper

The Queanbeyan Swap Meet is held in conjunction with two car shows - the Ford, GM, Chrysler Day and the American Car Day. This post is about the Ford's that were on display on the Saturday. I will post about Ford cars that appeared on the Sunday, in the near future. The focus of this post is Aussie and English fords (OK, a few US cars as well).

Interesting profiles. Only the front panels and floorpan are interchangeable between the sedan and coupe. Even the windscreen glass is different.

Queanbeyan Swap Meet 2014 - the crap people sell and that some people buy!

The Queanbeyan Swap Meet is a Canberra car show fixture, and now it has been moved so it doesn't clash with the AFL Grand Final, it is increasing in size - more vendors and more buyers. They hold it in conjunction with two car shows - on the Saturday a Ford, GM and Chrysler show and on the Sunday an American Car Show. This post is all about the crap that people cart to the Swap Meet to sell, with only a few car photos. They are coming in separate posts.



German Autofest 2014 - Mercedes Benz

The last of a series of posts from the German Autofest 2014. Mercedes Benz was by far the largest marque represented, maybe just slightly more Mercs than Volkswagens. There was a strong mix of modern and historic vehicles, although the nature of time and the way people relate to their cars, always favours modern cars over antique vehicles in volume. It is pretty obvious that the two door Mercedes tend to live longer than their four door brethren. Zero station wagens on display also. 
A most intriguing car. The most highly modified Mercedes I have ever seen I would like to know more about this car.
