On Sunday, the 1st May we attended the third Motors and Meatballs to be hosted by Rolling Stock and Enzo’s Cucina in Glen Alpine, near Campbelltown just south of Sydney. This event is steadily growing and Ross who runs Rolling Stock also gave away a set of wheels to one lucky person!
The last time we were here (for the second event) was in October of last year and it was a damp morning this time, although the rain had moved off by the time we got there at 9am. It was a bigger crowd this time and many more cars from all over the world.
There were more local machines this time, mostly Holden with a couple of older Fords to not make it so one sided. It was great to see the Torana SLR5000s make an appearance along with the Ford GT. These were the “big” cars of the 1970s and made for exciting motor sport.
The Japanese contingent were mostly Nissan GTRs with a sole Toyota GT86 to remind us that they also do affordable fun cars! Of the four GTRs present, there was only 1 R32 version – Godzilla was certainly making a statement this time.
The European cars were mostly high end supercars and again, we were reminded of some history with older cars and trucks on display. The DeLorean was parked directly opposite the AMG SLS and both were vying for the best Gullwings. It’s amazing what comes along to these events – an old, now classic, Jaguar XJS was parked in a corner and the Bedford Truck was clearly a barn find that was resurrected.
Wow. That was all I could say about the stunning 1959 Cadillac 2 and 4 door De Villes that arrived in immaculate condition. No US Fords or Chryslers were present, so only GM sourced vehicles this time.
Rolling Stock do a great job in organising the event with Enzo’s and it will grow more, the only downside is space. The whole car park and the street had great machines to enjoy. Look out for the next event, I’ll be there taking more photos!
