Norton St. Festa 2010

Sunday the 21st saw 21 members of IMSMC and their cars participate in the 2010 Norton Street Festa. Our meeting place being the Office-works car park on Parramatta road. While at the car-park many members shared a "story or two" about their trip in: the public cannot but help notice our cars.

After a brief induction The Cavalcade to Norton Street was underway. What a sight. 21 Italian Classics on Parramatta Road - it felt like it was 1967!!! 99% of surrounding traffic, actually allowed the bulk of our cavalcade to stay together...Thank YOU Sydney!!

Upon arrival, our impact was immediate. Our cars were surrounded all day...every member keeping a watchful eye on one anothers cars and being kept occupied answering many questions of the 1000's of visitors to our display.

Throughout the day members had the opportunity to visit the many coffee shops, ice cream bars, food stalls and purchase the many "Italian Delights" on offer throughout Norton Street.

Our Club Stall was kept active - Unbelievable "bunch of Salespeople" exist in our club. Your efforts being very fruitful, with our club selling lots of merchandise.

Arguably, the car of the day that deserves special mention is the wonderfully restored &presented FIAT 1924 501C Tourer, owned by Inez (and Norm) Mitchell! A true credit to you and a pleasure to have such a wonderful (rare and special) motor-vehicle as part of our club. A definite attraction and significant contribution to our display at the Norton Street Festa.
