RACQ Motoring of Yesteryear 2000.
Sunday June 25.

They still flock to adore the marvel of the motor vehicle. Several thousand spectators poured into the Mt Gravatt Showgrounds to admire over 700 of the states best examples of motoring history. There was everything from the T Model Ford to the Leyland P76 to the FJ Holden. Not to mention the Mustangs, MG’s, GT Falcons, Valiant Chargers, Austin 7’s, Vintage Trucks and Bikes to name a few.

As usual, the Minis were a crowd puller, with an endless stream of people admiring the 25 cars our club had on display. One thing that stood out was the attraction to the young people who are about to get their licence. Some of them had a Mini and others were looking to buy a Mini in time for the big day. We also gained a few new members as a result of our presence on the day.
