Hmmm, there's a similar gathering in Sydney. Unfortunately I've had to work those nights since finding out about them, but will get to one soon.

Did the guys know what your car was - looks like a Challenger on the right of that LJ, so there's some more Chrysler input.

Looks like fun.

There didn't seem to much interest in a British hybrid, most people had no clue to what was under the bonnet until we left the car park. Apart from the standard Holden's/Chev's and Fords (Plenty of fake XY/XW/XA GT's), there were a couple of rotaries, an RX3 and RX7.

Met the owner of a lovely Aus assembled 390 Galaxy 500, with a 390

Interceptors seem like such a big car until you see them parked next to another car. Even the LJ Torana looks massive next to it, though I suspect the Jensen would be longer?

LC 6 cylinder Torana is smaller in length, 4387mm and a wheelbase of 2540mm, while the Interceptor MK2 is 4775mm and a wheelbase of 2667mm. Looking at the car it doesn't look large, but is a similar size in length to our departed Mazda 6 Luxury Sports hatch.
