TargaWest Classics in the Park

Post by scorchi0 » Mon 05 Aug, 2013 3:27 pm

See here for more details: http://www.targawest.com.au/Classicsont ... fault.aspx

The event is on Sunday the 18th of August 2013 and will feature a car display at Langley Park on the Perth city foreshore.

I'll be going along as part of the MBCCWA display and there should be a few member's cars on display.

I'm not sure of the times that the display is on, but I'll post more information when I find out.

cheers,
Trent

Why yes Giles, it's funny you should say that! My Dad's 560 will be getting its first public outing in the 19 years he's owned it.
Just a teaser:

Well as I don't have my W126 any more I was going to take my wife's E430 to the Targa West Classics in the Park until a better offer came along yesterday.
I was in having a chat to the local MB Dealeor Principal yesterday about the show and he suggested I take one of his 560Sl's. I thought about for a second or two before declining. They are his pride and joys and yes he has a pair.

I suggested I take one of his cars from his lot to which he agreed. It packs 368kws and 700nm of torque. Can you name the type of car it is?

Here are two clues.

The event was very enjoyable, there weren't too many other car clubs and for shear numbers, the 21 cars that showed up for the MBCCWA put the rest to shame.
Here's a selection of what was on offer:

Some nice photos there Trent. Great to catch and talk shop.

Well done on representing the club in The Display Lap.

The photos were all Simon's, I should give credit where it's due.

I think if you were around when Simon was asked to put a car out for the lap then the S55 would have got the gig. The noise up Riverside Dr would have got the club some attention!

See you at the next one, German Car Day on the 22nd of Sept I believe.

Giles & scorchi0 it looked like a great day and pity i missed it.
The "all German Car Day" was great day last year at Mandurah and i do want to make that one again this year as it is only 4 weeks away.
Will start a thread to see if we can get more interest to come along this year at Northam.
