Default Year of the Chrysler

Includes this beast - which got my vote for best Chrysler.

Burma Dodge, built for the Chinese. Only two known to be in running condition in this country (and they never came here as new trucks). Originally had a tray on the back. Changed to Prime mover to legally drive
at events.
Owner kindly let me have a drive - big flat six purred effortlessly.
Beautiful five speed crash box, very easy to shift (even for me) Fifth gear one to one.

Nope the pics were taken on other people's cameras this year. I think one of them was Jan's 'chick' iPhone. Not sure who else's were used.

Default Another generation

This was the first year my daughter, son in law and 2 year old grandson attended. Henry couldn't get enough of it although the carrier overwhelmed him somewhat.

Default The little Ford Marmon

This really is a beauty and probably my favourite of the event...

Owner needs some help. Perhaps seeing this may instill a bit of Dutch patriotism??

There could have been 4, but I had been wearing mine earlier in the week, bad planning! Will rectify next year.

Just got home an hour ago. Great trip and everything went well.

best regards,
Richard

Here is Alan Newton after I presented him with the Life Membership certificate, and Jan who received hers earlier. The third certificate was sent up to Queensland to be presented to Ian Grieve.

Alan and Ian were the original instigators of the event 37 years ago, when it was just planned to be a get together of Ford GPA amphibs. Jan received the award for her tireless work and enthusiasm since around 1996 when the event started to grow.

best regards,
Richard

Thanks to my brother Rob, for the photo
