National Motoring Heritage Day- Berry 2017

As part of our National Motoring Heritage Day, on Sunday the 21st of May, 33 IMSMC vehicles participated in the  " Shoalhaven Historic Vehicle Club" (by invitation) to a wonderful display of Italian Vehicle at the Berry Show Ground. 

There was a specific emphasis on Italian Vehicles at Berry this year and WE DID NOT LET THEM DOWN! What a vast variety of Italian classics on display!

On one of our BEST Autumn days this season has offered, 33 of our wonderful Classics (and cars) met at the Partridge VC rest area and traveled together, making our way approximately 130km's bound for Berry!

Our trip was pleasant, our cars all buzzing along in the traffic, bringing cheer from accompanying motorists.

A special mention to our FIAT 500 members, that made the trip. Keeping up with the cavalcade!

There was a special presentation, reminiscent of Auto Italia... Tony Albanense was presented with his "Auto Italia Presidents encouragement award" on the day.

Berry had a great deal to offer, encouraging members to take advantage of the art & crafts, specialty stores, and wonderful historic buildings along the main street.

Like all good things, the day came to a conclusion. A final cheer from everyone and we were on our way, Sydney bound, again our cars bringing interest

on the main roads leading toward home.

A huge thank you to all our participants. One thing was certain, the drive & display was everything that the National Motoring Heritage Day could promise. A Huge presence of our cars, on our roads by our enthusiastic members. What a drive!

Well done IMSMC!
