 Quotes from some of the emails received after the event:

"Just a quick email to once again congratulate you on a FANTASTIC event last Sunday. Everybody I spoke to on the day commented on how well organised it was that having the marquees, music, food and coffee, just helped make it even better. The cocktail party the night before was a great idea also and the display of cars on the night and on the Sunday was one of the most impressive I've seen anywhere in Australia." DM

"Just a short note to thank you for the show yesterday. It is evident it is the best venue and show in WA by some margin and is fast becoming a land-mark event if it isn't already." MB

"You are to be congratulated on organising and running such a successful event." BH

"The most impressive car show I've seen in anywhere Australia." AB

"A fantastic event – I reckon it was the best yet.  A credit to you and your team." CC

"Congratulations to you for organising such a successful show. It was great to come along and see all those amazing cars." DV

"I found the collection very impressive and of course interesting" RC
