On Sunday 19th June, 16 cars and 27 members with family attended the Maggio's Cafe Breakfast, with compliments from IMSMC.

New member Andrew Maggio provided each person with a great value breakfast including coffee on arrival, cakes, omelettes....and more coffee before departure! Welcome to our club Andrew and THANK YOU!

Our day began at meeting point -  Nat Stillone's Gladeville Auto Body Works - on approach we were greeted by a "Police operation"...our cars having an impact on the young officers, as I distinctly recall them "dropping the hair dryers" (hand held speed cameras), removing their caps and scratching their heads!! and naturally a huge smile from each of them! that's my story and i'm sticking to it!
Nat Stillone provided a tour of his workshop - certainly some special vehicles as works in progress. Thanks Nat!

At approx 8.30AM our cavalcade started along Victoria Road, Burns Bay Road, Epping Road onto the Pacific Highway, Falcon Street then into Miller Street where we were greeted by Andrew and the many patrons that were having a "quiet" Sunday morning breakfast. Quickly the word spread and many visitors made their way to the cafe, admiring our special Italian Made machines. We were visited by Jason Hodges (from Better Homes & Gardens). He is a very good friend of Andrews and he absolutely loves our cars!
(many of our lady members went weak at the knees and Jason happily obliged with photos! mmm)

It was great to meet new member Pietro Lavenuta & wife Chiara, with their lovely 2012 Fiat 500 Abarth - Pietro's car attracting a great deal of attention - lovely car Pietro!

Before long it was time to leave and, like a scene out of "The Italian Job", our machines invaded Miller Street and dispersed, homeward bound! A great morning sharing in great company! thank you all!
