One of the regular Coffee & Chrome groups decided to try out a new venue, the streets of Port Adelaide, or “The Port”. The Port is one of Adelaide’s older areas, and is a mix of Industrial, Retail and Residential buildings. It’s mostly deserted on the weekends, but not last weekend, when it came to life with the sounds and sights of Coffee ‘n’ Chrome!!
Join me, and we’ll have a look at some of the highlights!
This beautiful 1939 Oldsmobile Tourer even had a Dickey Seat!
And couldn’t you just see Al Capone riding around in this 1929 Dodge Brothers Tourer?
One of a number of Ford Hot Rods, this bright yellow 34 Utility really popped!
There were some really cool Rat Rods around too, like this 1936 Chev!
And this AMAZING Rat Rod, Tattoo!
I have a bit of a taste for the old Chev’s and this purple 53 hit the spot all right!
What an absolutely STUNNING Red 54 Chev!
Fins! Love those Fins! On a really nice 1957 Chrysler.
Speaking of Fins.. on a 59 Chev Belair this time .. they changed a lot in a few years!
This SS Camaro was a stunner too.. that paint….
One of my favourite british sports cars, the legendary Lotus Elan! A Lovely example too..
I think most white cars look like kitchen appliances, but it suits this Corvette!
Another really nice Hot Rod, a Chev this time. Simple and clean is really nice sometimes.
Here’s another Red Thunderbird.. I do like these, I do!
There were some really nice examples of Australia’s Holdens too, including this 1967 HR Premier. I had one of these when I was about 17.
Somebody was deadly serious! A stretched Ford Fairlane really looked the part!
And I thought this custom Harley well worthy of a few shots too – very nice!
This is another Australian Holden – one of the first, an FJ! They really did use them as Taxi’s back in the 50’s and 60’s.
A very pretty Holden HG Premier – they didn’t come with a bonnet hump like that, I can promise you!
A cool Dodge phonebox.. umm.. phoenix.. on the move..
One of my favourites, a Cobra replica (what’s wrong with me, liking all these fords?)
Jaaaaaaaaaaaaaag!! A rare 2-door XJ-C.. A pal has a V-12 in the same colour, this is 4.2 litre 6. Pick of the XJ’s ?
A really cool Pontiac GTO. Niiiiice…
Here’s a VERY sweet Mini! There were probably close to a dozen altogether (I liked this one the best!)
And to give you a bit of idea of the feel of the day, here are some street shots. There were evidently over 400 cars present!See Lots More Pictures – Click Here!
