To say the great turn up of members were gobsmacked by both the variety and presentation would be an understatement. The range of rare Mercedes could only be purchased by a person with a knowledge and passion for the brand. Wayne stated that many of the cars were purchased unsighted over the phone and so far there has been no bad stories to tell.
The earliest car was from the 1950s with the majority being in the 60s and 70s. Wayne’s interest in motor cars is lifelong and seriously started with running the Holden museum in Bendigo at the Pottery many years ago. The tour is a perfect example of Bendigo people doing great things and as a club we need to stay informed on local attractions.
Thanks to all the members who supported the event . And thanks to Wayne and Judy Baker for making us so welcome. Article by Ron Poyser
