Historic car display captures imaginations in Ballarat | Pictures

Vehicles predating 1919 attracted attention at six locations in and around Ballarat on the long weekend. 

About 40 vehicles were on display as part of the RACV Veteran Car Club Annual Rally.

The restored vehicles stopped in Gong Gong’s Kirks Reservoir, Wallace Hotel, the Lake Goldsmith Steam Rally, the National Trust’s Mooramong Homestead, Learmonth Bowling Club and Sovereign Hill across the three days. 

Among the display were a 1907 single cylinder Cadillac, a 1908 Sovereign motor cycle, a 1915 Spacke Deluxe motor cycle and a 1906 Vulcan – which was the oldest car.

Cruising speeds for the cars ranged from 30-60km per hour.

The majority of entrants were from across Victoria, while three came from South Australia. Some entrants had three generations of family members owning and driving the cars. 

The RACV Veteran Car Club Annual Rally is typically held in November but changes locations each year.
