Photo Hunt: Metal

A couple of classic E Type Jags.

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.

Ooooh! Wow - now this is very interesting... And great finds. Now I don't know about you but trying to get into that piece of art would be squishy and very uncomfortable.

WOw great motors. I dream of owning an e-type (and a DB5 and a Cobra). THe not wife would sell her soul for an XK120.. In the meantime our 1990 Corolla will suffice!

I remember that Delorean car,it was a cool car with it doors opening up (am I correct?) LOL on the Model T.

I have cars in my entries too :) Have a great weekend, Colin.

Cool post. I did an old car this week too, though I don't think mine is quite as old as that Model T. Happy Weekend!

Pretty Life Online said...

CRIZ LAI said...

Wow... those classic Jaguars are just magnificent! Nowadays, I don't see many around our roads. Maybe it ended up for display only. :P

Although I've never learnt how to ride a motorbike, must say that I find them to be more fascinating machines than cars! ;)

Great photos for the theme. Beautiful cars and bikes... nice examples of "Metal".

Thanks for coming by to see mine.

jmb said...

That's one source of metal that I never thought of for this theme. Must be a guy thing.
Have a good weekend Colin.

Those automobiles are classics!! The curves and lines are perfect! Great metal finds :)

RJ Flamingo said...

What a neat choice for the theme! They definitely don't make 'em that photogenic anymore!

I had no idea what to do with this week's theme, so I'm afraid I did stretch it a bit:

Lovely metal, particularly the motorbikes!

Oh my I'll take the Jags.....they are awesome. You too did a terrific job with this week's theme.

But if you do get a chance to visit mine be prepared because I was truly silly this week.
