Little Bit Of Eye Candy From Tassie

Recommended Posts

Was in Launceston in early March, before the world went mad, and visited this lovely little vintage car museum. Thought I'd share a few highlights for those who haven't been:Austin_Healey_1956.jpg

What day were you there?

I was there on March 20th, and fell in love with the Lotus in the office.

 

We also found another museum in Wynyard, well worth the visit.

Cheers

Thanks for the photos! Must wipe the drool off my phone!

Some lovely examples of desirable cars there.

Great idea for a thread, thanks for sharing.

Hi Andrew,

 

My wife and I were in Launceston from 28th Feb to 11th Mar. We did the 6 day Overland Trek from Cradle Mt to Lake St Clair, with full packs (over 20Kg). Bloody hardest thing I've ever done, but a fantastic experience, and then had a few days downtime before flying back. Wandered around Launceston a few times, dropped in to the Car Museum and the art gallery, had a massage, walked the gorge, did a winery tour and a few other things. Lovely town, some magnificent wine and food, definitely heading back there again.

Very nice pictures, and creative use of the mirror...

 

Who can identify the red / orange sports car next to the blue / white GT40?

 

A police car in a desirable car museum?


Cheers,

 

Tony.

 

There's only two questions:

 

1. What direction do you go

2. What's the Lap Record?

Yeah, sorry, I didn't get the name plate in the frame unfortunately, as I did with many of the others, and I simply can't remember the make or model. I'm hoping someone will recognise it.

It looks a bit like that sports car/kit car that Dick Johnson ran in some Targa races in the 2000's????

Hi All,

 

I just emailed the museum, who then pointed me to their Facebook page, which happens to feature that car on a post from yesterday.

 

The car is a 2015 SUPERLITE SL-C COUPE

I heartily recommend you visit the Facebook site, as well as the museum itself, as their photos are far more drool worthy than mine.
