A large number of CACMC members and vehicles enjoyed the beautiful park location and Britishly fine weather (ie. fine, with a stiff breeze) for Terribly British this year. We couldn’t do a firm headcount, because a number of our members had their cars lined up with their own marques in different parts of the display – MG, Jaguar, Triumph, Rover, Riley… famous names and quality cars that share CACMC values and companionship.
The Queanbeyan location gets strong support from the local government – Queanbeyan Palerang Regional Council. Howard Taylor was standard-bearer for CACMC this time – his 1930 Austin 7 won the special prize for “Car the Lady Mayoress would most like to take home”.
CACMC cars got a lot of attention from the public. Karl Maftoum was called on to give many extended explanations of the features of his rare Lanchester LD10.
