One thing that has become evident to my eyes at recent Corowa events is: many of the vehicles , a rough guess around 60% are trailered to the event. Back in the early days we drove our MVs there. Traffic these days on the modern roads is hectic and fast, it has just become too dangerous for our slow vehicles . There were a few exceptions, a C60L was driven from Geraldton West. Aust. A mammoth 5 day drive across the Nullarbor, the Chev. has a 235 motor fitted. .

Default Down at the lagoon

Scenes down at the lagoon.

Some of the heavy hauling vehicles towed trailers loaded with vehicles. I spotted a couple of semi-trailers with three vehicles loaded on the trailer.

Saturday morning line up for the parade through town. Two German bikes.

Default MA Jeep

The story as far as I can recall. This MA isn't a recent import, it was found in a incomplete state in a orchard in NSW. How it got there ? Was it left behind by the US forces ? Could be a similar situation to the Ford GP that was found in Victoria in the early 1970s.
