Default Corowa 2015

As per usual, a huge effort made by owners of these vehicles, who obviously do it because they love it.

Just needs to go for another week so you can catch up with everyone.

As usual I only managed to meet a few of those present. Greg was able to attend again this year and is planning to ask for the same week off work again next year.

Seeing as people seem to be reluctant to post images. I put up a few more of mine...

Pictures of multiple vehicles are of a school visit in Yarrawonga. Kids had a great time blowing horns and steering vehicles.

After seeing the Amphicar on Classic Restos a few months ago I decided to follow it up and Tony, the owner said he would love to attend. He lives in Cooma and knows Manfred Henkel well.

If anyone knows of any different, non military vehicles who might be interested in attending they are very welcome to invite them. A few years ago we had the Oz-Amphibian attend and it also received a lot of attention.
