Yesterday was our National day of Heritage Motoring in Australia. Its designed to get owners of classic cars fired up enough to get them out of their sheds and on to the roads for a day.
In Berry, a town just over 2 hours from here, they have a big gathering each year and I decided to take my '75 Triumph Dolomite SPRINT along yesterday. The first time its been out on the road since last November.
400 -500 cars were there. You know, everything from rally cars to vintage cars to muscle cars etc etc; Only one T, a 1914 roadster was in attendance, but my car was the only SPRINT there and it attracted quite a bit of attention.
But not as much as this gorgeous 1909 Scat speedster.
Oh, I love that '09 Scat! (There are some bad jokes that could be made from that name, but that car is just too beautiful for me to consider it right now) I tend to prefer the earlier horseless carriage (or veteran) eras.
I will also say "beautiful Triumph" however. We seldom see those cars here.
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2
I wasn't able to find much period info on the S.C.A.T., however found this British journal description of the 1909 car (chassis). Several unique features include a self starter. There are also competition results involving high SCAT finishes::
