Burwood Classic

Sunday the 7th of September, FATHERS DAY 2008, 12 IMSMC members arranged their cars, "by special arrangement", on Park Avenue at Burwood and participated in The Burwood Council Spring Festival "CLASSIC SHOW & SHINE"
The weekend looked like it would be a "wash out" as Saturday was full of RAIN! - Then, right on queue, Sunday morning was mild, with sunshine and blue skies.
Burwood's main road was mass of activity - coffee shops, restaurants and around 100 classic cars..
Needless to say, Our display attracted a great deal of much so, that during the presentations at the conclusion of the day, our club and "The Losinno Topolino" was given a special mention - TWICE IN FACT by the president of CMC, Kathleen Toovey.
Burwood park itself was filled with amusement rides, stalls, face painting for the children and food from all parts of the world. It is estimated that around 50 000 people visited the festival throughout the day.
A great day which was enjoyed by all, and gave our club great exposure and a wonderful opportunity to shine, drive and display our cars and maintain the awareness of "those classic Italian Cars" on our Aussie Roads.

One person visiting our display said, "They must be Italian cars - that one has the Italian stripes on it." Meanwhile, pointing at Bruno Bartolotti's 500!

See you at the next event!
