This run turned out to be a very pleasant day. It started with most of those who came meeting at the clubrooms and heading to Andrew and Fe’s home in Coldstream, to explore Andrews collection of cars and parts etc, others including myself turned up separately.
‘Goofy’ was on display for all to see along with all of Andrew’s other projects. His collection of parts is obviously vast, we were able to have a good look around and with Andrew telling us what he had. We had approx two hours here that included morning tea that Fe set up for us on Andrews ‘Mans Shed’ outside deck with lots of Early Holden décor.
Then it was time to head to Aldo’s place for a look at his Garage/workshop and lunch. We started off in convoy that split up due the unavoidable traffic lights, but it was a great day for a drive in perfect weather and we all made it to Wantirna.
The main focus at Aldo’s was his Ute that has been a long term project that is very near completion. It is obvious that the attention to detail and the quality of the restoration and modifications is of a very high standard, that is a credit to him. I am sure it will not be long before we get to see it joining our club runs for all to see, a great addition to our club car list.
We then turned our focus on lunch and being the great host that he is Aldo started up the BBQ’S and we settled down to a great lunch and drink’s in his outdoor alfresco area. We enjoyed a good sociable afternoon to finish off the run.
Thank you to Andrew and Fe and also Aldo for allowing us into your homes and garages and for your hospitality.
A great run with 16 members and 11 Earlies attending.
Stay happy and safe Jim.
