MBCNSW June Night Drive – Berowra Ferry

Today was the June MBCNSW night drive.   This month, we had planned to do the route originally planned for March.   Back then, Sydney had just experienced the worst storms in 60 years.  Our route was not going to be possible after all the storm damage.   We also had to postpone our planned route tonight.   We were supposed to drive over Berowra ferry, but as we got close to it there were signs indicating the ferry was closed for urgent repairs.

Instead of taking the Ferry, we headed up to Peats Ridge via the Old Pacific Highway.   We took the old highway back as far as Mooney Mooney and then the motorway to Thornleigh McDonalds.

I took my 560SEC and it ended up being the oldest car there.   That is somewhat amusing since it is the newest car I own.   There is normally a good variety of cars at the night drives.   As well as my SEC, there was a 420SEL.   It was also nice to see a W140 in the form of an S420.   It is quite rare to see W140s at club events.

As well as the three older cars there was a good selection of late model Mercedes including an E400 Cabriolet, an AMG GT, CLA45S and C300.  Both of the AMGs are not garage queens – they are regularly used by their owners which is great.

Despite a second failed attempt at our route, the June night drive was still a lot of fun.
