WA Photo Gallery 2013

Details from 2013
The 2013 Celebration of the Motorcar held at Cottesloe, WA, was a resounding success. The feedback from visitors and exhibitors has been overwhelmingly positive. Many well-travelled people have stated it’s the best car show in Australia, with a unique atmosphere. A fabulous variety of fascinating cars  offered plenty to excite enthusiasts and tantalise any visitor. The numbers through the gate were very good, with a healthy queue for much of the day.
 The organisers were thrilled with how the event worked out – the array of cars, the way they were laid out in the grounds, the venue, the weather, the large and happy crowd of visitors throughout the day, the music, the ambience…
 Three special feature displays were:
Aston Martin Centenary – with an array of cars from the oldest Aston Martin in Australia, through to the very newest model
Porsche 911 50th Anniversary – the display spanning the earliest 911 in WA to the new Turbo and 50th Anniversary models launched just 3 days prior
50 Years of Bolwell sports cars – featuring a unique line-up of every model made – never before done anywhere in the world
 Guest of Honour was the legendary Australian sports car maker Campbell Bolwell, who came to Western Australia especially for the celebrations, seeing all of his creations together for the first time.
 Congratulations to the award winners on the day – the judging was certainly not easy:
