We also saw these colourfully decorated retro food caravans at Perth’s Curtin University.
Most of them don’t have any branding badges or decals, though the one above is obviously a Baravan – a West Australian brand in the 1960s and early 70s.
We went along to Truck Stop at Perry Lakes on Sunday. Enjoyed choosing our dinner from the many food trucks that turned up for the relaxed open air event.
Our favourite food kiosks were these two vintage caravans that have taken on a new role/roll in life.
While we were in Claremont earlier this week, we also went to see the railway underpass, which was painted by Anya Brock last month during PUBLIC2016.
There is also a shop front in Bay View Terrace that features her artworks.
We were in the Perth suburb of Claremont a few days back and stopped to admire this 55m long artwork by Brad Eastman (aka Beastman); It was painted last month as part of PUBLIC2016 and adds a whole lot of interest to a temporary parking lot.
You get interesting views of the cars through holes in the structure.
Over in the main street you can also see this shopfront which has been decorated by Beastman.
Here are two more vintage trucks that caught our attention at Shannons Classic Car Show, which was held at Whiteman Park on the east side of Perth on April 17. The one above is a 1947 Chevrolet Maple Leaf, built in Canada.
The unusual truck below is a 1941 Chevrolet that was turned into a tramway tower truck, for working on the overhead electric wires.
Today is Anzac Day, when Australians and New Zealanders remember those who served and died in wars. Last weekend we were in Brunswick Junction, south of Perth, and stopped to admire this memorial to the 10th Light Horse Regiment. The dramatic mosaic is by Rocheen Navarro
By an odd coincidence, we saw this 1954 Humber military truck at Whiteman Park the very next day. It served in 10th Light Horse Regiment until the end of the 1960s.
Last weekend we went along to Whiteman Park, on the east side of Perth, to catch the annual Shannon’s Classic Car Show. With displays by about 100 car clubs, there was a lot to look at. The Mokes were celebrating their 50th anniversary (above), but what really caught our attention was the variety of great trucks.
The beat up 1926 Chevrolet above surprised onlookers when the owner showed that it starts up and runs with no fuss at all, while the shiny 1946 Dodge below shows the other end of the restoration spectrum.
