We noticed that our 1973 vintage tea towel calendar actually tells the correct dates for this year. Today is Friday 19 January – as indicated on the tea towel. It’s not just a piece of retro memorabilia – it tells the future too!
We also stopped to admire these pieces of vintage road building machinery during our visit to the Brockman Precinct near Bindoon, north of Perth.
We recently had lunch in the town of Bindoon, about 80km north of Perth on the Great Northern Highway. Afterwards we called in at the Brockman Precinct, which has this heritage listed Road Board building from 1929.
We also liked this old galvanised iron homestead.
Here a few cars that we stopped to admire at All Ford Day on the weekend. The station wagon above is a 1964 Ford Falcon Squire, and the convertible below is a 1959 Ford Skyline with a retractable hardtop.
We also liked this classic Mustang notchback convertible, complete with a notchback trailer.
We went along to the biennial All Ford Day at Bassendean Oval on Sunday. As usual, there was an impressive turnout of classic Fords on display. We liked this lineup of 1970s Falcon hard top coupes.
