The Crookwell Potato Festival attracted thousands of visitors and one of the great events was the classic car display.

The Ford Mustang, introduced in 1963/64, is one of the most loved vehicles ever produced.

Nostalgia is what it is all about with the Mustang. It conjures up memories whether you owned one, drove in one or just loved looking at them. They take us back in time.

The Cobra certainly is a special vehicle. The 2 door open top roadster is fast and the definition of performance. I don’t talk about the cobra I just show people a picture. It says it all.

To see this wonderful display at the Crookwell Potato Festival is so exciting.The best car award was a dead heat between a Cobra and the FE Holden below.

The Holden FE was produced by General Motors in Australia in the late 1950’s. All models used a 2262 cc in-line six cylinder engine, coupled with a 3 speed manual gearbox. This example, which shared the award with a green Cobra, is just stunning.
