3rd RACV MotorClassica NOW OPEN

MyDrive | Written by Adam Tonkin- Last night saw the launch of the 2012 RACV MotorClassica at the Royal Exhibition Building. Special guests, exhibitors and the media had the chance to look around the Royal Exhibition Building and get a true sense of getting up close and personal with motoring history.

Most marques are well represented although the Aston Martin and Sir Jack Brabham exhibits are a true highlight.  There were certainly no engine sounds to fill the room but the air was thick with petrol and old oil smells which would take even the most modern of men back in time.

I had the opportunity to briefly speak with Paul Mathers, the organiser of the RACV MotorClassica, he stated “This event is now in its 3rd year with the RACV MotorClassica being one of the largest shows of its kind in the world” “this year we are also celebrating the anniversary of the first Victorian Motor Show”. Paul also added “this year we have over 120 classic cars and historic motorbikes on show inside the Royal Exhibition Building with over a hundred more cars to arrive on Sunday for the Picnic with the Classics”

Later on in the evening I took the opportunity to meet a few proud car owners.  They were all only to happy to point out their pride and joy while giving me the grand tour inside and out. The owners are only too happy to chat and answer questions but I did get the sense that most of these classics never see past the owner’s driveway, but for only grand events such as this.

If you would like to get in touch with the past and see a magic array of fine automobiles and motorbikes, the RACV MotorClassica is definitely a must.
