Image for my grandson who at 7 has developed a passion for cars.

This shiny red MG Model TF roadster (produced 1953-1955), gleaming in the sun, upstaging its older rival a 1928 Ford Model A Roadster in the vintage automobile show at the annual Comboyne Village Fair.

Both classic vehicles have been lovingly restored by their owners.

Comboyne is a beautiful place of rolling green hills, forests, streams, waterfalls and magnificent open skies about 60km south-west of Port Macquarie, on the mid North Coast of New South Wales, Australia.

There are approximately 800 people on the Comboyne Plateau. In the Comboyne Village there are less than 200 residents with about 600 on the surrounding plateau.

Once a year the peace and tranquility is shattered as thousands of visitors drive in for the annual village fair.

This shot was taken with my Pentax k-r on 16 September 2012.

    What a beauty, Tony! If that were Canada, it would have been totally rusted away by salt!

  • Thanks David….I am sure the proud owner keeps it well away from salt spray and under cover most of the time.
