Toowoomba Hot Rod Week-end

Last week-end we headed to a destination about 2 hours away from our home to attend a hot rod weekend hosted by the Toowoomba Hot Rodders.  We have been going to this event for several years and always have a great time.  We stayed at our friends' place and here we are below heading off for breakfast at the show grounds with the rest of the group on Saturday morning.
After a breakfast of eggs, sausages, grilled tomato and bacon, we headed off on our rod run to the Army Air Museum at Oakey about 30 minutes away.  Here we were given a tour of the museum and workshops where many of the planes have been restored and others are in the process of being rebuilt to their former glory by a band of volunteers.  The tour guide had lots of interesting stories to tell us about the planes and in all we really enjoyed the informative morning.  I wasn't really aware that the army  flew and maintained their own planes.

Sunday morning we all headed into the city for the Show and Shine in the main street.  Below are just a few of the cars on show.  We had a lovely time catching up with our friends and checking out some new hot rods we hadn't seen before.  The weather was beautiful, a wonderful end to our weekend away.
