We went on the Historic Commercial Vehicle Clubs (HCVC) run to the Mornington Peninsula and Point Nepean, which was held on Sunday, August 25 2013. We met at Lyndhurst and then went to Point Nepean and after lunch we headed back to the very windy and twisty Arthur's Seat Road and then had a look at Charlie's Auto Museum, www.charliesautomuseum.com.au Here are some of the vehicles that did the trip.
Two Atkinson's - the one above belongs to Robert French.
And because they are a good looking duo - here they are again.
Graham and Shirley Pollards Austin 1800 ute.

There were two Transtars - Colin Hook's is above and Allan Taylor's is below. For some reason I didn't take a photo of Colin's truck - I had to 'borrow' this picture from his Facebook page.
Flying the flag for the European trucks was Jeff Johnston and his Volvo
Overview of the trucks at Point Nepean
Sadly, Trevor's truck broke down, but luckily Sean came to the rescue. There were plenty of fellow drivers to offer advice, support, take photos etc.
