Norton St Festa

Sunday the 30th of October, 33 members of IMSMC prepared their cars impeccably and represented our club at the Norton street festa di Leichhardt.

Our committee was on site early and prepared the club stall - while our members assembled in Five Dock and then cavalcaded along Parramatta Road and the City West Link - bound for Leichhardt.

Every IMSMC gathering brings it's surprises - with some new additions to the club. Well done guys! We seem to have sparked a restoration/acquisition culture of classic and modern Italian cars.

It's always a very welcoming site, to see the great number of smiles that appear on visitors faces, when they reach our displays. Some of the stories that some of the "old fellas" tell, certainly raise an eyebrow or two!

Our club stall was frequented by passers by. Our Fiat 500 espresso & capuccino cups were are very popular item. Thanks to the stall keepers.

The entire length of northern Norton street was a mass of food & Italian produce. The aroma of all Italian cuisine probably wafted all the way to Katoomba!!!

The day drew to a close and once again, all hands on deck, with many members assisting with the pack up of products from our stall. Respective farewells and courtesies were extended and in a typical Italian manner, the machines exited Norton street and dispersed. A great sight travelling home along Parramatta Road - it's amazing how you can spot one of our Italian Machines in the distance amongst 1000 cars!

Well done IMSMC - Thank you!
