Car Culture in the Australian workplace (links fixed)
#1
Every year for the past 5 years or so, on the break-up day preceding the Christmas close-down period, my workplace hosts a car show for employees to showcase their cars. Out of about 250 employees that work there, we manage to scrape up a fairly good proportional quantity of eclectic automobiles, motorcycles and other assorted memorabilia. I was there representing the 71-73 Mustang contingent of course. I thought I'd share a few pics of yesterday's event to give forum members a look-see at what average Australian auto enthusiasts are into!

The show was judged by a couple of blokes from a nearby hydraulics firm that we deal with, and they declared the winner to be the old orange original FB Holden Ute that was parked next to my Mustang. It was an ex-Sydney Airport maintenance vehicle that the current owner had rescued from an assured rusty death in a back paddock in the middle of nowhere.

I wonder, does anybody else's workplace do something similar?

Anybody else not get the pics?

No, all I see are a bunch of Do Not Enter symbols.

That sounds like a cool idea.


When the weather is nicer a lot of folks I work with daily drive classics and or oddball stuff to work. Not an official show or anything but you will see some pretty neat stuff in the parking lot. I’ll drive my 82’ GMC pickup in every once in a while, usually in the dead of winter when the snow is too much for my 2wd. It is rusty and crusty but fun to drive.
Someday in future land the Mustang will be together enough to drive...

Sorry everyone, the links all worked last night in the preview but looks like google images dropped the ball shortly thereafter.

I've moved them all to another image hosting site, let me know if these ones aren't working either....

They're all there now. Looks like quite a turnout. That is a nice Ute sitting next to your car.
