Sandra Horne (at right) drove tis little beauty all the way from Melbourne for the Red Centre NATS starting today with a street parade getting under way right now.
Sandra drove the 1932 five window (as opposed to three) Ford Coupe over the 2200 kilometres to be among a couple of thousand people and 800 cars in Blatherskite Park on balmy, sunny winter’s day.
She reckons the vintage car is worth $80,000 not counting the hundreds of hours it took her and her husband to do the job.
A lot more grunt is under the bonnet of this Holden Monaro GTS: Layton Crambrook (at left) fitted her with a 410 cubic inch supercharged Chevrolet motor.
The NATS will run till Sunday with, drags, show-n-shines, off road jumps, stunts, motorkhana and burn-outs – and lots more.
