A display of French and Italian cars followed by an informal dinner
Billed as the largest car gathering in Tasmania, this year some 600 cars participated. Impossible to say how many French cars were there as they were grouped and judged by age. Two French cars did win prizes awards against the dominant American culture. At the opposite ends of the age line they were a 'late' model De Dion Bouton and a more recent Mégane Sports.
