National Motoring Heritage Day in Australia.

I took the Messerschmitt to a Car show to display its new side carrier for the first time
It was National Motoring Heritage Day in Australia.

Our Messerschmitt proudly showing its side carrier and a German flag for its heritage.
There was a good turnout of cars, and here are a few that caught my eye.
A nice line up of Austins.
A nice Chrysler.
A Model "A" Ford.
Of course Model "T" Fords.

A nice Vauxhall.
And many more nice cars
It is Autumn now, so we are getting near the end of the Car show season here in Australia.

An over due update.

The Blog has been a bit quiet recently but we have been working in the background.
When Messerschmitts were sold, there was a factory extra in the way of a boot carrier, (we have one of those) and a less often fitted "Side carrier"
The side carrier is for a suitcase, or a set of Ski's or both.
We now have the "Side Carrier" and I am getting a set of old ski's - all from Germany the home of the Messerschmitt.
 Side rack down, ready to load.
Side rack up, very neat and tidy.

A busy 2 weekends coming up
We have a National Motoring Heritage day Sunday this weekend -I think you call it "Drive it day" in the UK.
The Messerschmitt is going, should get some good pictures.

The weekend after is Historic racing at Winton - Winton is an old Historic race track about 300 Km north of Melbourne.

Should be fun and I am expecting to be able to do a few show laps in front of the crowd with the Messerschmitt. I am arranging to have a video taken so here is hoping it all works out - got to be a fine day.
