IMSMC Photo shoot.

On Sunday morning the 12th of February, 40 club cars were presented by their members for the annual photoshoot. So overwhelming was the result, that the committee are already in discussion, regarding employing a professional photographer for 2013, celebrating our 5th Birthday!

With so many cars, we had to implement a plan B...create more space! We approached the management & staff of La Montage...they quickly accommodated our needs, allowing us to utilise their private car park. The colours were amazing (The Gelato shop effect!!!). Obviously Dante Giacosa spoke to "someone" and arranged the PERFECT summers morning - certainly an unusual site in Sydney this summer - blue sky and a big yellow dot up in the sky!

New member Michael Tringali presented a beautiful example of a Fiat 124 CC - nice car Michael. Nick Vasile presented his un-restored Fiat 500, "keep it original Nick!!!" and member Dino Capozzi arrived with his recently restored Fiat Abarth 1000OT replica spider - worth the wait Dino!! Also, we were in safe hands as "Vigile" John Losinno directed traffic and kept the "hoons at bay" in the Alfa Carabinieri car - thanks John, we all feel we are in safe hands!

At approximately 10:30am, all cars exited the carpark. Some were homeward bound, others made their way down Norton Street, the masses onto Parramatta road, M4 Freeway, bound for Club Marconi. Our cars were placed in the down stairs secure carpark. Upon arrival, inside the club, refreshments were plentiful! Soon afterwards, we entered Oscars Trattoria, were the afternoon unfolded into a perfectly relaxed event where food, drink and great company were plentiful! A special thank you to Fabio Moralez (manager of the trattoria and the entire staff, as they looked after our every need).
Thank you ladies & Gentlemen of IMSMC!So far this year, the "club has given back" to those that have supported the Breakfast at Oran Park and the Lunch at Club Marconi.

Each member received payment of these events, compliments of the club. That equates to free membership for the forthcoming year! Funds are raised by the membership renewals and the
ever hard working committee, taking every opportunity to raise funds with merchandise sales.
The kind support of our sponsors greatly assists in raising funds for the benefit of the club members. Your efforts and contributions are greatly appreciated.
