ICT- Leichhardt

Sunday the 22nd of May, 13 of our club cars created a wonderful display at the Italian Forum in Leichhardt, to welcome the participants of ICT - this year a rally from Lygon Street, Carlton Victoria, to Norton Street, Leichhardt NSW.

Accompanying out 13 member cars was a large contingent of family members that waited patiently at the restaurant "Sapore della Vigna" awaiting the arrival of the competitors cars. IMSMC cars created a typical classic Italian setting, reminiscent of the classic 60'-70's period. Cars of the IMSMC display included 500's, 600's, a 124, 128, Topolino's, Alfa 105, and a special mention to member Domenic Ardino who presented a unique 1967, FIAT 206 Dino Spider.

Thank you to Mastertouch Automotive , who offered wine to the members and Gladesville Automotive, for coffee later onin the afternoon, while standing around in the piazza it really felt like you were in Italy!

We were joined by a number of members throughout the afternoon - with one young visitor from Italy exclaiming, "It's difficult to find such wonderful examples of these cars, in Italia!"

Members from IMSMC made a wonderful contribution to the Italian Connection Trophy, an event that our club was part of at the first rally and has continued to support since 2008. We have had 2 members participate in the past and from some discussions it looks like some more may well participate in the Sydney to Melbourne rally!

Once again a big Thank you to all members and friends who participate and visited us on the day!
