Photo Hunt: Metal
One of Hannah's classmates families owned the Rudge Motorcycle Business
Line Supervisor Hannah bosses along the model car production line.
Hannah and her class (and Granny Senga) went to the National Motor Museum at Birdwood in the Adelaide Hills recently. I took an earlier unscheduled trip there earlier in the term when Ryan forgot to tell me that they were going and I was deliberately late for school to do some errands and had to drive him up there.
An hour and a half away from us in the Adelaide Hills, it is a fantastic collection of mostly old, but also fairly new cars. They have many familiar cars from my childhood including a Delorean, a Model T (not my childhood) and one of the last Mitsubishi 380s built in Adelaide earlier in the year. Adelaide has a fantastic climate to preserve cars and there are many that ply the streets periodically. The Bay to Birdwood event featuring many of these cars is an Adelaide tradition.
Anyway, a good time was had by all looking at some stylised automotive metal.
