    A few more photos

    Hello from Brisbane.

    A few more photos of the Land Rovers at Allora - I have dozens of the tractors, but thought they might be of lesser interest.

























    Cheers,

    All going well - by this time next week I will be back driving one of these:





    Looking at one of these:

    Allora revisited

    Hello from Brisbane.

    Although not listed as an official club trip, with Mrs S3ute's blessings still ringing in my ears (and some money knotted in a hankie for a beer and a burger), I snuck off back up to Allora on the Sunday of the recent Australia Day long weekend to get another small dose of machinery nostalgia - being the Sunday there were fewer machines and vehicles than likely would have been on display on the previous day.

    But, it didn't disappoint.

    Horses:



    Tractors:














    Cars:











    Trucks:







    Trucks with tractors:



    But just the one Land Rover:





    And lots of small engines:





    Excellent stuff - SLOW needs to be there again next year.

    Incidentally, between Allora 2014 and the Coolatai tractor pull outing I really got back into small vintage motors. So much so that I went out and tracked down an aging Villiers Mk12 engine with pump for future restoration - the aim being to rig up a Heath Robinson like contraption to keep concurrently amused and cool at future events.

    And the burger was pretty good too...............

    Cheers,

    Neil
