CAR MUSEUM

You are never alone or helpless. The force that guides the stars guides you too.

On Sunday P:-) and I visited the Australian Motorlife Museum at Kembla Grange. It was quite a large area of  vintage cars, motorbikes, bicycles and caravans.

I was fascinated by the caravans.

Caravans

This was a Propert folding caravan and was especially interesting.

The interior was quite spacious.

If you look at the side of the caravan you can see where it folds.

This cute little Fiat has 3 wheels. it reminded me of one my next-door neighbor had many years ago.

This is the oldest registered bus in Australia.

Many of the cars had solid rubber tires

We came across this museum in a book about the Illawarra and the Shoalhaven.  There is very little advertising about it any where.

Yesterday was the first day back at school after the holidays. It was fairly quiet. We had a few more kids in today.
