Auto Brunch St Ives June 2023

This morning I attended the monthly Auto Brunch event at St Ives Showground.    This is easily the best cars and coffee event in Sydney, and even eclipses some of the formal shows.    Even though it was raining on and off all morning, turn out was excellent.    Probably almost as good as last month even with the bad weather.

I took my 450SLC.   It was a good opportunity to take it for a longer drive after finishing the Becker install.   It was also quite dirty from not being used for two months, so I wasn’t too concerned about it getting dirty.   The more I use the car, the happier I am with the Becker.   It sounds really good, even with the factory amp.   The FM injector works well, and it looks so good in the dash.

As usual there was a great selection of cars.   This month the Alfa Romeo club must have had an official event there, as there were a lot of Alfas on display.    There were also a fair few British sportscars that had to quickly put on what tops they had to keep the rain out.    There were other unusual cars like a Lancia Prisma and an Alpine racing car.

Seeing for the first time at Auto Brunch was a Lamborghini Countach 5000QV.   It looked great in black and you forget how low to the ground these cars are until you stand next to one.    The pick for me was the 1959 Ferrari 250GT.   This is owned by a MBCNSW member and is immaculate condition.    It sure drew a crowd.   Both of these cars were good reminders that we should use our classics, and bit of light rain is far better than lack of use.    If you can take out a 250GT in the rain, you can take out an R107.
