From the Harvest Festival – Paul viagra without a prescription canada Mitchell remonstrating with an apple….
March is part way through the apple harvest season, and a good excuse to put a number of elements together. Apple and apple based produce, a jumping castle, bands, tractors, dog massage (!), paella, slow brewed organic coffee, beer, and of course classic cars. This and more became another Lenswood Harvest Festival.
A broad representation of the Classic Car community gathered – everything from a Riley 9 with a fibreglass body, to a full LPG gas powered 32 Ford 3 window coupe. Ours and the Riley Clubs had a friendly face-off and were given the task of judging each other’s best of examples, with a People’s Choice to be decided as well.
Mine [and a few others] favourite was a Riley 9 that didn’t seem to have much Riley left on it. See below. Alternator conversion, fibreglass everywhere, home made SU trumpets, laser cut friction dampers, reverse H pattern shift, and originality be damned. Even the screens were off a 50’s Holden.
Clear winner for the day was in fact El Presidente – Kevin Caire, whose Bugeye took out People’s Choice and the Riley Club’s favourite trophies. Kevin was of course at his son’s wedding, so while Chris and Barb [who had brought the car up], were not looking, Ken Dutch and I impersonated Kevin, and grabbed the trophies at the presentation. Ken makes a better Kevin than I do….
One final note – Lobethal Bierhaus turned up. Nothing fancy, just a truck, four kegs and bottles and a pile of plastic cups. Good fun day out had by all – somthing you have to put in your diaries again next year. As one smart arse band singer said when introducing the next song – “Enjoy…OR ELSE!!”
If you needed any encouragement or even inspiration about coming this SATURDAY to the Lenswood Harvest Festival, the picture below should more than suffice.
Feeling motivated? You should be now. This is going to be a great event, and we need your Sprite / Midget / Clubman / Other Special Car to come to this event and display your car along with the Riley’s some Hot Rods, and a giant apple!
It’s FREE ENTRY to all those displaying cars, so come along.
Please RSVP to either Paddy email@example.com and I will organise tickets for you.
Our very own Patrick organised an excellent run on the day set aside to honour his namesake.
Seven cars (11 people) met at the Fullarton Park Community Centre and headed off towards Windy Point. The weather was kind to all and particularly suited those with their tops down. Through Upper Sturt to Aldgate, then into Mylor, Echunga, Meadows, Kangarilla and a much needed comfort stop at Clarendon.
The roads were ideal for cruising and blowing some of the cobwebs from our cars. All the cars performed well, even the family cars, so there were no hold-ups for any mechanical problems. From Clarendon we wound up at Woodcroft where Barb and Chris had prepared a barbecue lunch and we were also joined by Rose and Jan making 15 in total. And it was not just a barbecue – after the meat course was over and sweets were on the way, Paul and Pat Mitchell entertained us with a musical presentation of Irish songs, Australian ballads and some blues on mandolin, accordion and guitar.
While we were not any serious competition for the Adelaide Harmony Choir, we sang along and thoroughly enjoyed the music, and then came the sweets.
But it all had to come to an end, so somewhat later in the afternoon, after coffee and green cakes we all set off for our homes.
Thank you to all those involved in the organisation of this great day’s outing.
Go to the Bug-eye Barn website www.bugeyebarn.com. and check out ‘Whats New’. and See the the artícle, ”The Countdown has started” about re-assembly of a Bugeye in 16days.
St Patrick – keeper of the Faith and Supreme Optimist. As is seen below, the facial expression of Patrick is one of contentment, confidence in his Sprite and the knowledge that surely, God is on the side of all things BMC. Or maybe he has drunk too much green liquid the night before…..

Hi Due to the large number of people who have other commitments during ‘mad’ March Tina had decided to reschedule this Saturday’s event later in the year – cheers!
Howdy spritely spriters.
Last night being our annual fish n chip run
attracted a reasonable throng of club members. 3 Sprites, and 3 regular
cars (airconditioned). On a warm summery evening all who attended
ventured up the freeway towards Crafers and along the Piccaddilly road
to Summertown, then back down Greenhill Road and wendered our way to our
destination being “Barnacle Bills” at Marden ( very upmarket) and met
more spriters (The Brock’s), where we wined and dined on a sumptuous
seafood menu and quite a nice cellar of alcohol. Amongst the Spriters we
had some fledgelings, Don and Elaine’s grandchildren and members not
seen for quite some time, Jim and Shirley. After gorging ourselves we
ventured to the golden arches at Collingswood for desserts and coffee
and brisk conversation. The event was pleasant, casual and informative
and a great evening was had by all.
