Flashback! Kingpin Kuztums Lygon St Catchup 24/1/21

Still in the depths of a very cold winter where I am so car shows are a bit of a challenge at the moment. 

So..back into the archives for what I recall as being a very hot day in January 2021 for the Kingpin Lygon Street Catchup. 

A smaller turnout due to the HOT weather but still some awesome cars showed up as they do at all Kingpin events. 

It’s been a while since I’ve got to one unfortunately so I need to change that in the near future.

Vale Neil Joiner

Vale Neil Joiner


I was saddened to hear of the passing of Trafalgar Holden Museums main man, Neil Joiner. 


I have family that have volunteered at THM for years and had involvement with the setting up of the museum. 


Through this connection I met Neil and spent some time photographing and visiting the museum on many occasions. 


He was a wonderful man and very passionate about preserving the entire history of Holden from the beginning. 


The museum grew and with the demise of Holden in Australia, the Route 69 cruise was born celebrating 69 years of holden vehicle manufacturing. I attended a few of these where some of these pics are from. 


I also had the pleasure of photographing Neil when Frankie J Holden and Wilbur Wilde were at THM. Frankie loaned his FJ for display and it was a great opportunity to get some pics. 


I offer my condolences to Neil’s family and also his THM and Trafalgar “family” who I’m sure will be shocked and saddened by his passing.

Flashback - All American Car Show Gembrook 2019

Obviously over the winter months, a lot of the regular car shows have a break so photo opportunities are less prevalent. 

That prompted me to dig into the archives. 

Here’s a few pics from the All American Day in Gembrook from 5 years ago. 

This show was great as there was so many flashy American vehicles from the 50s and 60s. My favorite era to photograph. 

There’s just so many amazing details and a joy to find them and photograph them

Alexandra Truck, Ute and Rod Show 2024

Last Sunday I attended the 27th annual Alexandra Truck Ute and Rod Show in Alexandra, Victoria. 

An absolutely huge event for the town and shire as well as the trucking industry/community. Estimated 15,000-18,000 people and over 300 trucks in attendance, the day was a ripper. 

The weather was cold relatively kind so it didn’t dampen the mood too much. 

It’s not only a truck show, but more like a carnival with local traders all open, food stalls, market stalls, kids rides and show bags, live music and the fantastic woodchop competition. It really has a great atmosphere. 

I’ll definitely be there again next year.

Hot Rod & Custom Auto Expo 2024 Deluxe Unveil!

One of the great things about working at Deluxe Rod Shop is getting to see just how much work goes into building the cars they do. 

An amazing amount of thought and skill in every aspect of the build culminating in an eventual unveiling at some of Australia’s premier events. 

This was the case last weekend at the Hot Rod & Custom Auto Expo at Rosehill in Sydney. 

Leigh’s childhood dream, this 1935 Ford Roadster Pickup, hand built at Deluxe Rod Shop made its debut and was a standout. 

I was lucky enough to be involved in the build with some fabrication and machining of some parts, but as with all these builds, it’s such a huge team effort, orchestrated by Steven Alldrick, owner of Deluxe. His vision for the end result at all stages of these builds is astonishing. 

Here’s a few of my pics of the final product in Sydney.

Hot Rod & Custom Auto Expo 2024 - Part 2

At the end of 3 days at the Hot Rod & Custom Auto Expo at Rosehill, Sydney, I decided to do a few closeup / detail pics which I love. 

I once again checked out the ever changing car park area and found a few interesting vehicles to photograph.

Hot Rod & Custom Auto Expo 2024

I was lucky to spend the weekend checking out the Hot Rod & Custom Expo 2024 at Rosehill Racecourse in Sydney. 

My second year in a row at this event as part of the Deluxe Rod Shop team, it didn’t disappoint! 

Lots to see and some absolutely incredible vehicles on display. 

Here’s a snapshot of some of the action.

Prince Skyline GT 60th Anniversary!

Last weekend I had the pleasure of photographing a great get together of the Prince Car Club of Australia in Echuca/Moama. 

Sixteen of these rare cars gathered to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Prince Skyline GT (1964-2024). 

Quite a number of the cars had traveled quite a distance to attend and everyone clearly had a great time catching up and enjoying each other’s company. 

Many thanks to Jason and everyone in the club for giving me the opportunity to be a part of the weekend with my camera.

Seymour Cars & Coffee 4/5/24

Yesterday I attended to first Seymour Cars & Coffee just off Emily Street in Seymour.

It’s so good to have another local option for a casual automotive get together so I made sure I got to the inaugural event. 

A good turnout of vehicles which will likely grow as word spreads. 

Congrats to the organizers for getting this up and running.

National Motor Museum, Birdwood, South Australia

I was lucky enough to have a little road trip last week to Adelaide via the Great Ocean Road and while in South Australia I made sure I stopped in at the National Motor Museum in Birdwood. 

It’s been a long time since I had been there so I was looking forward to checking out the displays. 

It’s a fantastic place with many iconic vehicles on display. 

Of particular interest was the Holden Heroes retrospective which showcased many important Holden vehicles over the years 1948-2017. 

If you’re ever in Adelaide, I recommend putting a few hours aside and visiting this great museum in Birdwood.

Highball Goes Country - Again!

Highball Cars and Coffee again moved to beautiful Erindale at Taggerty for Highball Goes Country 2024. 

After a successful similar event in 2022, this time around there seemed to be a lot more vehicles in attendance. 

The crowd is definitely skewed towards later model European and Japanese/JDM vehicles, but the mix was definitely eclectic and there was something for everyone. 

Proceeds went to Buxton CFA so hopefully the large crowd put in and the CFA can make good use of those funds. 

Weather wasn’t perfect but it cleared up and everyone seemed to be having a great time. 

This is a good one to get to if you get the opportunity. 

The entry through the driveway and the spectacular autumn trees is worth going for and a fantastic place for some beautiful pics of your car.

Narrandera Rod Run 2024 - Part 6

My final installment from the Easter weekend at Narrandera Rod Run. 

The Show ‘n’ Shine on Easter Sunday is a huge event open to everyone with a special interest vehicle. 

Of course plenty of official entrant’s attend but there’s also a lot of local vehicles that make a day of it. 

Food stalls, kids rides, market stalls, a pinup competition and the official class winners at the end of the day guaranteed a great day. And the weather was warm and dry. 

A perfect end to Narrandera 2024. 

Hopefully I’ll be back next year for the 40th anniversary Rod Run.

Narrandera Rod Run 2024 - Part 5

One of the highlights of the Narrandera Rod Run is the Saturday cruising on East Street. 

Titled “Cruisin’ no Boozin” the Main Street is closed off to general traffic from 4pm and is an entrants only area for the evening. 

Entrants then cruise the street and cut laps, much to the delight of the thousands of spectators that line the street. 

It’s a great night and definitely one worth experiencing if you ever get the opportunity. 

More to come…

More from the Narrandera Rod Run!

It’s such a big event, the photo opportunities don’t stop. 

These pics were from the second observation run around town on Saturday morning as the participants set off. 

I picked a nice spot outside the golf club and snapped away as they took off.
