From the brisk morning air and sunshine at Parliament Place, to the iconic red dirt of the WA countryside – this was the second country run of 2016.
The gathering in the early hours of Sunday morning saw countless beautiful Mercedes-Benz arrive which was testament to the vast array of classic and modern models in our club. From a 1960’s 280SL, through to an imposing W100 600 (the admiration for which could be clearly heard up and down the street upon its arrival!) and the latest CLS Shooting Brake, CLA45 AMG and C200. In between were some fantasitc examples of well-loved models including the W126 560SEL & 560SEC, R129 500SL and of course the W124 diesel!
Setting off for a nearly two-hour journey, the cars rolled out in convoy taking a direct route via Great Eastern Highway, leading them to Mundaring for a short half-way stop. Participants had a quick chance to grab a coffee before the stream of cars pulled out, on their way to Greenhills.
Upon arrival, the open car-park opposing the Greenhills Inn provided a magnificent area to showcase the cars, with the charming pub in the background. With 35 people in attendance for lunch, it was certainly a lively atmosphere and a great day was had by all. We can’t wait for the next country run!
