The heart of the suburbs might seem an unusual place for a display of military vehicles, but this event was a bit out of the ordinary. This is set up as a learning day for young minds on things mechanical, particularly automotive, and the displays ranged from wonderful meccano creations to steam-driven cars. I went with Euan McDonald in his CGT.
Several Victorian Military Vehicle Corps members were there an a variety of vehicles.
Towards the end of the day the children (and some parents) were able to sample the vehicles.
This forward control landy arrived with it's big block chev growling, and has been known to do 4-wheel burnouts.
This Foden was carrying an interesting load... ... a R-R Meteor engine which, unfortunately was not run.
An Albion Chieftan of the late 1940s.
