 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.
