Norton St Festa 2019

On Sunday the 27th of October, 43 IMSMC cars were displayed in Pioneer park as a contribution to the Norton Street Festa, Leichhardt.

What a display! We had visitors around our cars all day, with most exclaiming how rare and wonderful our cars look. Many had a story to tell of the things they did in a car "the same as this one" years gone by.

We had over 60 members visit our display throughout the day, making contribution to a wonderful experience. Our morning meet at Officeworks carpark (opposite High Performance Smash repairs - club sponsor) went without a hitch as over 40 cars and 1 bike exited the carpark onto Parramatta rd, our destination Pioneer Park.

Members set up camp under the olive trees in an area reserved for our club... sharing homemade biscotti, coffee, and other slow food delights. Discussion, as always could be heard from all around!

At midday, the staff of Impact Exhibitions (event manager) provided everyone with a "Porchetta Roll" - Thankyou Patrick O'Reilly & Co.

I highly suggest you visit our website and Facebook page, for many images and video to view and share - Awesome job by Daniel Cipri, capturing the day on video - Check it out!

Our "staff" made representation at the many stalls that offered all good things Italian. A full day, offering the opportunity to share in mateship and welcoming new friends, as always.

Alessio Losinno knows who to make friends with!

Thank you IMSMC.

IMSMC Retro Harbour Cruise

Saturday Night, 19th Of October, 2019 saw the The Inaugural  IMSMC retro harbour cruise. The cruise left from Star City wharf, Sydney harbour in the worlds best looking city!

150 members, family & guests contributed to a most memorable night of fun.

The theme was Retro, 1970's, 80's and 90's.  We had appearances by the likes of; Freddie Mercury, Madonna, Boy George, Ozzy Osborne  ,Janice Joplin, Hippies Galore all making an appearance! At a few points during the evening those aboard were treated to a fireworks spectacular  - was this organised by IMSMC? Some would say...yes

We thank and congratulate the staff & management of Vagabond Cruises... They were fantastic to deal with, right from the initial enquiry (months ago) through to the attention, professionalism, friendliness & efficiency in everything they provided. The food was great and The bar staff did a wonderful job, catering for all. (no one went thirsty!)

Thank you to all who participated - the many that went to great length to find "that" outfit!
A huge thank you to all that assisted in organising a great night -  especially Rose Cara &  Lino De Iulio ensuring all went extremely well for all aboard!

We'll do "that" again!

Breakfast at the Oaks

On Sunday the 6th of October, 80 members in 40 Italian Made machines, participated in our club breakfast run to The Oaks Hotel. Half of the fleet made their way directly to the venue, while the other half met and crusied together from Luddenham, taking the scenic and somewhat, remote country roads.

We welcomed two new members this event, wonderful cars, that you will see again (maybe another inclusion at the forthcoming Concorso?) Welcome to IMSMC Cristian & James!

It's amazing the beauty of area's such as Luddenham, Wallacia, Warragamba & Silverdale and The Oaks! Let's hope with the arrival of Badgery's Creek airport, Sydney's backyard does not change its appearance too much!

A HUGE thank you to the staff and management of the Oaks Hotel, for arranging use of the entire council carpark, in front of the main entrance, exclusively for Italian made vehicles.

To great surprise, a coffee van was onsite and offered each person complimentary coffee. This was greatly appreciated by all in attendance!

Soon after, the masses moved into the dining area and ordered breakfast. Feeding 80 hungry Italians was never going to be easy, but the kitchen staff did very well!

A great drive and great company at a fantastic venue which I am sure we will visit again in the future!
