Steve McQueen's son, Chad is a guest. And Rauno Aaltonen and Bob Holden are also meant to be there. Given it is 50 years since they won Bathurst together in a Cooper S and the event to celebrate 50 years of the Southern Cross rally

Motorclassica is the premium event of its type in Australia, held in Melbourne's beautifully restored Exhibition Building. A wonderful way for car enthusiasts to spend a day drooling over rare and special interest cars while often catching up with friends and fellow enthusasts. Then there's the famous Italian food mecca of Lygon St, just a few hundred metres away for a good feed afterwards. Which is exactly how it turned out for me.

 

As I type this it has opened for today (the final day). So if you're not too far away you can view it still.

 

For those a little further away, here's some photos.

Essentially these first couple of snaps show the same area, but from 2 different directions. With lots of Mecedes Benz and the main stage where the guest appearances take place.

I hadn't been to Motoclassica before and made a visit today.  Some incredible cars and restorations.

Top car of the show was a HT 350 GTS Monaro by Re-creation Automotive in Lilydale. The judges would have had a tough job.

Also caught up with Rauno Aaltonen for an autograph and found him to be a thoroughly approachable gentleman.

Rauno Aaltonen was indeed very approachable (and helpful) gentleman. Saturday, but especially, the evening at Motorclassica (when things quietened) had a few special moments for me. He had only been in Australia one day with no sign of jetlag. With stories to tell in impeccable English,and his professionalism shining through. I thank Rauno for the time he spent with myself and a couple of friends.

Some of the diverse tastes that is Motorclassica
 
2016_Motorclassica_MB_300_SL.jpg
My understanding is that the concours preparation for this 300SL Gullwing and the Monaro 350 shown earlier, were both carried out by specialist detailer, Campbell Foster. Each car taking prizes.
 
2016_Motorclassica__Alfa_1900.jpg
For some time now I have had a photo of a rare red Alfa taken from a slide nestled amongst some 1965 Longford slides. I turn up to this year's Motorclassica to find this car on display and a spitting image of it. The information card even said it had been red, but recently returned to its original factory colour. Quite possible this 1953 Alfa Romeo 1900CS is the very same car.

One way to display your Model T.

 

2016_Motorclassica__Auburn_01.jpg

1936 Auburn 852 Phaeton. Apparently it was sold new in South Australia in right hand drive form. But little is known of its early history.

 

2016_Motorclassica_MB_540K.jpg

About 20 years ago, the current owner of this 1936 Mercedes Benz 540K purchased the car from an Australian Customs Auction after it had been seized for false declaration of its then value by the person who had imported it..

2016_Motorclassica__Jaguar_XK.jpg

This XK120 was in the auction at Motorclassica. I think it sold at $Aus80K, although it had been 'sold' on ebay a couple of months earlier for about $Aus68k.

 

2016_Motorclassica__Jaguar.E_Type_02.jpg

After 55 years since release, the shape of the E Type is still something of great appeal.

 

2016_Motorclassica__Lombard_01.jpg

Part of the VSCC lineup, the 1928 Lombard AL3 with Australian race history since 1929.

 

2016_Motorclassica__Vauxhall.jpg

It's not all about shiny paint - the race numbers were removed for the VSCC Motorclassica display. This is the same 1924 Vauxhall 23/60 shown on the VSCC Rob Roy thread a couple of months ago. Owner (and well known by several members of TNF) current VSCC President, Patrick Ryan has his back to the camera.

2016_Motorclassica__BMW_M1.jpg

With the BMW 100th birthday part of this year's Motorclassica, this rare to Australian shores, M1 took part in the display.

 

2016_Motorclassica__Maserati.jpg

Each year, outside between the Royal Exhibiton Building and Melbourne Museum the area is devoted to car club & premium pre-owned dealer displays. So you can view a large variety of marques, even these Maserati Club cars.

 

2016_Motorclassica__Lamborghini.jpg

Modern exotica is not my thing, even if I had the pots of gold just to cover the insurance! But no doubt plenty come to view Lamborghini like this and maybe some even book a test drive with the dealer.

 

2016_Motorclassica__McLaren.jpg

Because Melbourne no longer has a Motor Show, premium new car brands are included as part of Motorclassica. And I guess if you're going to buy something like this McLaren then you may as well go the standout yellow.

This year's Motorclassica at Melbourne's iconic Exhibition Building takes place over 3 days starting this Friday.

 

Mossgreen are running the auction side of things with the the ex Ian Cummins restored Jaguar D Type on offer amongst the lots. 

 

I hope to get there over the weekend and might have some photos after.

As I write this Motorclassica is into its final day. I ventured in yesterday and wandered around taking in some of the very interesting cars on display. Both inside and the outside of the Exhibition Building. There is a huge presence for Ferrari, Holden and Lancia this year.

 

2017_Motorclassica_02_TNF.jpg

I have never seen a Lancia Aprilia Spyder Grand Sport Ghia before, not surprising when so few were built. I was somewhat surprised to find it came from 1947 when I was thinking early to mid 50s.

 

2017_Motorclassica_04_TNF.jpg

Two stunning early V12 Ferraris,the white example from a prominent Aussie race driver's collection. When I was a kid an uncle had a 250GTE, so, although not a Ferrari enthusiast this is the era that I can relate. ,

 

2017_Motorclassica_05_TNF.jpg

This was the most expensive car to go to auction in Australia. But it stalled at a mere $Aus5.5million.

That Aprilia Spyder is certainly a timeless design. Brian, the owner, [indicating how wide the wheels are? :cool: ] is one of the best...if not the best...panel-beater in this country!

Greg, Brian was clearly proud of his car. He showed me a Ghia book that actually has his car in it.

 

2017_Motorclassica_01_TNF.jpg

Stradale version of Lancia's icon of 1970s rallying.

 

2017_Motorclassica_06_TNF.jpg

ex Lance Reventlow Cooper bobtail was part of the auction too. This car is part of the late Paul Moxham's collection and has some interesting and well connected motor racing people standing at its rear - ??, Vern Schuppan, Spencer Martin and Cath Davison (daughter of Lex & Diana).

 

2017_Motorclassica_07_TNF.jpg

This year's Motorclassica had two 275GTB's on display, this one outside and one inside.

Dick, I was getting pressured by her indoors to head for a feed over at nearby Lygon Street so completely missed the Cooper Bobtail. But if memory serves the MG Q Type got to $370 or $375K. Someone will be well pleased with the $78k or so plus buyers premium for one of the last Mk1 Cooper S built here in Australia. Makes for the most expensive road going Australian Cooper S, I suspect.

Crazy indeed, but that sums up how most in the 'hero car' classic market have tended to go in recent times. Yes I can see CTS in Sydney having $100k plus on all the Cooper S they handle now.

 

I don't mind them being worth a decent amount to help justify cars being restored properly, but it will entice some folk to churn out replica cars and try to pass them off as genuine. Not that that's new, but where big money is BMC Australia ID and compliance plates from long lost Cooper S will be coming out of the woodwork.

 

 

2017_Motorclassica_08_TNF.jpg

Totally different to a Cooper S, but me thinks this rare Swallow was a bit of a bargain at under $60k inc premium.

As I mentioned in an earlier post Holden had a huge presence at this year's event. This week being the last few days of locally produced Holdens. The end of mass produced car manufacturing in Australia

 

2017_Motorclassica_09_TNF.jpg

Here's one whereby Holden created the base FJ sedan and a Mr Stan Cordell converted - one of a small number so converted.

This RL series Alfa arrived in Melbourne in 1923 and was bodied locally. According to the information on this car it spent the first 15 years of its life driving between Melbourne and Geelong delivering mail and passengers.

I have to say that I applaud the honesty the dealer shows in revealing the truth behind that car. But suspect they'd be far better dealing in cars that can be verified genuine. Even though it's not always an easy task when Australian-built Cooper S are concerned.

Like I've mentioned and shown earlier, Lancias were everywhere last weekend at Motorclassica and many will have moved on to their rally in Castlemaine this w/e.

Thank you for the kind comments Gents.

 

So the judging panel missed your input this year Matthew. The event was about a week earlier this year so probably messed up a few plans for some.

 

2017_Motorclassica_18_TNF.jpg

You've probably already seen the Q Type from other sources, but here it is anyway

 

2017_Motorclassica_16_TNF.jpg

This is the only Bolwell snap I have from the lineup of them. I tried to get 3 cars into one photo, but people kept walking into or through the frame (common problem at MC). So gave up and snapped this.

This car caused a lot of controversy on this forum when advertised in UK earlier this year

It is simply a Formula 3 Brabham with a V8 Repco engine. It was only raced by Brabham twice

As long as it is not promoted as something it isn’t then I have no problem with it.

I'm pretty sure the controversy to which you refer Terry was in relation to BT31-1, this is not that car.

Freshly restored Maserati 6CM from the Roberts collection and beyond it, the only Repco Brabham BT17. That car arrived into Australia on Wednesday - ex Art Valdez collection and now in Tait custodianship. If any TNF members have photos of Jack Brabham or Mike Knight racing this car then Nigel will be keen to hear. (Can pass on messages)

This is NOT "Jack's BT7A". Must be a replica

Only two BT7A were ever built and both are accounted for.

Surely a little research on part of organisers would have found this out.

No doubt any minute now to be subjected to issues of authenticity.

 

Loaned to the organisers by Repco.

So my disclaimer is that the photo is put here in good faith for those TNF enthusiasts who might get something positive in seeing what's going on at Motorclassica this weekend. If not look elsewhere...

Another from yesterday's setup.Nelson Piquet Ralt RT4 from the early 80s era of AGPs at Calder. Jim Clark Lotus 39 that also has a huge amount of history with Leo Geoghegan in varying guises and AJ Williams FW07. As far I'm aware Alan is meant to be a guest at this year's Motorclassica.

But if you find it is fake news and dodgy displays then you won’t go.

I'm pretty sure the controversy to which you refer Terry was in relation to BT31-1, this is not that car.


So do you know what car this actually is?

That '64 trophy for the AGP is interesting...

That was the last year before the CAMS introduced the permanent trophy for the race, hurriedly named the 'Lex Davison Trophy' but bearing a little (Arthur Waite) Austin 7 atop a couple of kangaroos.
