Headed out to Shantytown to take a look at the national pre 1956 MG car rally celebrating their 20th anniversary on the West Coast over the weekend.
Wonderful venue for some wonderful old cars.
Picture perfect day and great to wander amongst the history – both of Shantytown and the cars on display.
Great array of cars for viewing – all gleaming and glistening in the sunshine.
I swear I wouldn’t want to drive some of these beauties on the road – I’d be too frightened that they’d get damaged.
Shantytown was the perfect location for the display – the historic buildings making a great backdrop.
There was entertainment on hand also with the Kokatahi Band and the Greymouth Municipal Brass Band serenading everyone as they wandered amongst the history.
All in all a great few hours out in the sunshine, surrounded by history and surrounded by beautiful cars. Thanks Shantytown for hosting the event and to all the owners of the pre 1956 MGs for bringing these gorgeous vehicles along and putting them on display for all to enjoy.
