Auto Festa 2015

On Sunday the 25th of October, our Club participated in AUTO FESTA, as part of the Norton St. Italian Festival of Leichhardt.
52 spectacular Italian Made vehicles graced the space in Pioneer, creating one of
the best displays that our club has created thus far. The colours creating an attraction that satisfied car enthusiasts from afar!
Stories were abundant, as many visitors sharing their experiences, of an era where "everybody owned or knew someone that owned an Italian Made car, either here or in "Italia!"
Member Rob Losinno presented his wonderful Alfa 105 - the long awaited "reveal!". Congratulations Rob & Elissa, the labour of  love truly evident. Wonderful to see a fantastic example of an original 850 sedan, presented by member, Giuseppe Puglisi. Well done! Another special mention to Frank Failla, presenting his A112 AutoBianchi - it's probably the only one in the country!... proudly a part of the IMSMC fleet!
The day was full of Italian, cooking, cuisine, fashion, music & technology. Our club stall was kept busy all day, with IMSMC STAFF, run off their feet, whilst music kept us all entertained, from a neighbouring stage.
We also thank the event manager, Patrick O'Reilly & staff, for their assistance as cars entered the park. We thank them for the complimentary "porchetta roll" that each driver ( and visitors) were offered as a gesture of appreciation, of our participation.
EACH MEMBER IS COMMENDED in the manner in which we met, cavalcaded, prepared and presented our cars. A wonderful display. Fantastic to see so many members that squeeze in a visit, in between other commitments...Thanks EVERYONE! A memorable contribution, to what boasts to be the largest Italian Festa in the Southern Hemisphere.
