Jordan reported afterwards: “I can’t tell you how excited he was. He didn’t stop talking about it all night. So thank you so much.”
Well done Scott!

Demonstrating a Model T to a group of very excited cubs. This was done to coincide with the centenary of cub scouts – the kids are learning about how things were 100 years ago. They were very enthusiastic despite the 38 degree heat!
The club is proud to display at Club Sandwich this year at Motorclassica.
Come along and have a look at the cars on Saturday 24th October at the Royal Exhibition Building, Melbourne.

T’s at the starting point at Ruffey Lake Park before setting off to Rob Roy.
