Wet, wet, wet is the condition that greeted the diehard car fanatics for this festivity. The event is put on by the dedicated guys and girls of the Lincoln- Mercury car club and they do a fantastic job every year. While many stayed hidden in the comfort of their homes, and they may have been the smart ones, a few braved the elements determined not to be sidelined by the constant rain that fell onMelbournethroughout the day. I, myself decided to brave these conditions as the temptation of photographing the combination of architectural design of the Docklands and its surrounding restaurants mixed with the classic lines of the automotive art of the past combined with the gloomy yet reflective elements that can be created by such weather got the better of me. I ventured out with camera in one hand an umbrella in the other and found all possible vantage points to capture what I hope can be described as visual art for the eye.
Gary and the team are determined to keep this show going and growing each year, rain, hail (hope never!) or shine to be as successful as their Sunday event held the next day which sees the Docklands foreshore filled beyond capacity with classic American iron in all its glory. It’s free for the public so why not attend both days and make a weekend of it!
Keep on cruzin’
