Auto Italia 2019 - Canberra, Australia

Hi All,

Thought Id post some pics from this car meet yesterday. Nice 2 1/2 run down to Canberra from Sydney and some great Italian cars on show.

Special guests included Valentino Balboni of Lamborghini fame. Not sure that a sports ground in Canberra is quite the same as a Concours on Lake Como that Valentino might be more used to, but the cars were great.

Good variety of GTVs on show, and two engine bay pics show different ways to bump up the horsepower.

Was great to drive the 700 + kms to Canberra and back.
Lots of cars and people
Good weekend away

Thanks for the pics

Hi Robert,

Must have been nice to get back in the white one. Beautiful car.

Photo 5 has my sliver GTV6 between the race car that never gets washed (straight from the owners mouth), and a new Giulia. Spoiled for choice.

See you at the next event. Probably the Auto Brunch at St Ives for me.

Few more photos.

Craig

I looked at your car,,,nice condition
St ives is local to me and usually there every event to catch up with the boys
Was great to drive the V6.
26.55 litres for 303 kms travelled was pretty economical also.
You need a car washer,,as my 2 boys cleaned mine so they could drive the Blue 67 GSGT.
So many events
This weekend im doing a rally in my 105 2 litre
Next I have to get my Junior Z out of display and drive that again (not used for 4 years either)
Would be nice to stay home for a weekend.

Oh man I love that aquamarine Ghibli! One of my favorite old GT cars from that era.
