|Year of the Armoured Car 2006 - the event|
|Daimler Dingo of the South Australian Museum leads the Scout Cars up the main street of Corowa in the Saturday morning parade.||Tim Scriven's massive half track is ex-Greek Army and therefore doesn't have the modifications of the Israeli ones. Tim kindly offered me a drive of this vehicle. It certainly feels it's size.|
|The AMVCS stand, next to the check-in.||John Belfield (Left) with his LP4 Scout car, Porcupine.|
|The Daimler Dingo on the move. This is powered by a 6 cylinder Daimler DB18 engine driving a pre-selector gearbox. I found it quite pleasant and easy to get the hang of driving.||Another shot of John's LP4. This is one of two now restored, the other being Bandicoot restored by Colin Anderson and now in South Australia.
See some production images.
|A little further along the parade, with a F15A.||The Corowa 400-Gall tanker F60S hauls up the hill followed by a F15, C60S with lend-lease cab, then Euan McDonald's CGT 9.|
|Where else but Corowa in March would you be likely to see a CMP parked in the main street?||This is one of the other attractions of Corowa - the joy of a swim in a Seep.|
|Some more main street parade shots, this time a brace of Studebaker US6, which also attended Year of the Studebaker.||John Ledoux's F15A.|
|Humber staff car.||Colin Anderson built this Model T in just 4 months. He reckons this sort of activity keeps him young! Col took his LP4 (since sold) to Corowa in 2001.|
|This Fargo participated in the Alice Springs event in 2006.||Mark Sierant in his "ToyDodge" - a Toyota with a copy Chev engine.|
