Marques in the Park 2011

Marques in the Park is an annual car show in Canberra that is probably my favourite to attend. It is very casual, and is really aimed at car owners not the general public. There is no entry fee, and no parking for non-participants. So, if you are there, its likely you own one of the cars on display.
For some reason the other blokes from the P76 Club decided to not park in the space we had been allocated, and didn't bother to tell me. I decided to not park my car in the shady tree area near the lakes edge, and parked out in the middle of the grassed area. Later, the other P76's were moved to a better spot, but I was off taking foters by then. Enjoy.

  1. That VW Microbus is so cute and hippie! These photos have awakened the wannabe-vintage-collector in me. It’s amazing how different models of Ford that came from the same era have assembled here. This car show seemed like a reunion for them. =)
