We were walking past the Western Australian Medical Museum in Subiaco recently and went inside for a look. The museum had plenty of graphic reminders of how much medicine has improved during the past century.
We especially liked the early “lying in” room above and this collection of Flying Doctor memorabilia. The volunteer run museum is only open on Wednesdays and some Sundays, so check their website for details.
There were also a few vintage caravans at the Shannons Classic Car Show on Sunday. This little teardrop was towed by an Austin A70.
And we noticed this twin-axle fibreglass Olympic caravan in the carpark.
There were also some great lineups of sports and muscle cars at the Shannons Classic Car Show at Ascot Racecourse on the weekend, including Corvettes (above) and Austin Healeys.
And somehow the Toranas managed this amazing display of precision parking.
Yesterday we went along to the Shannons Classic Car Show at Ascot Racecourse in Perth.
Despite despite threats of rain and thunderstorms from the weatherman, the cars gleamed in the autumn sunshine beneath blue skies.
We stopped to admire this 1960s vintage caravan at the Falcon GT Nationals in Perth on the weekend. It’s part of a rig that used to be driven to country race meets – Ford truck with a Falcon dragster on the tray, and towing the Caravelle for mobile accommodation.
We find it hard to ignore a display of classic muscle cars, so on Saturday we went along to Claremont Show Grounds to see the display of Ford Falcon GTs – part of the program for the GT Nationals, held in Perth this weekend.
Lots of heavy metal, bright paint, glittering chrome and big V8 engines!
As well as all the classic cars, we also enjoyed checking out the retro food vans at the Curtin Radio Car Show in Perth on the weekend.
After a bit of agonising, we settled for chocolate milkshakes from this Kombi milkbar – and were glad that we did.
