There was a very large car exhibition in St Kilda last Sunday. I caught a 16 tram to have a look. There was a huge number of cars and it was so busy. I was one of the few masked people and I really didn't want to mix among the crowds, so here are a few photos taken at one edge of the huge display. It was rather disappointing that I did not feel like mixing with the crowd, but there will be future car displays. How lucky are you to not have one hundred car photos to view!

Looking at Motors
In my childhood a car engine could be called a donk, and my oh my, what a large donk this car has.
Dunno what brand this car is. It is very stylish, so maybe Italian?
Who doesn't love a VW Kombi van, especially an early one with front opening windows sending a warm breeze through your hair as you drive a scenic coastal road or through a mature grown temperate rain forest on your way to a camping site? I left my own fantasy once I got to camping.
A General Motors Holden. I have to look at the parking lights to decide the model. I'll go with FE.
A Ford Fairlane, ZF model I think. I drove one once for several kilometres. It's large V8 motor pushed it along effortlessly and almost silently. It absorbed any bump in the road. It's steering wheel could be turned with you little finger. I also drove Mercedes and BMWs but this Australian car was the nicest car I have ever driven. No doubt it was very thirsty for petrol, it is too big for inner city driving and it didn't have air con, but gee in my fantasies I would really like one.
I was about to cross the road to the tram stop to go home and this stretch yellow New York taxi appeared, loaded with party goers. I've not seen it before.
