Event date: 28 March 2021
Early start Easter Sunday morning, joining up with friends driving a BMW M E36 and an Alfa Romeo Montreal we met in the Eagle Chair Lift car park at the top of Arthurs Seat in Dromana.
We headed South towards Flinders initially driving through filtered sunlight and then into heavy fog. The air was brisk and the cars sounded fantastic. Ten K’s from Flinders we came across a vintage car and respecting the car and driver we proceeded to follow him into Flinders.
Flinders was buzzing with participants and early spectators. The Flinders Lion Club had parking marshals on almost every corner.
I headed into section B where the BMW Drivers Club Melbourne were setting up their display. There were 12 BMW cars being displayed this year.
By 10am all 160 cars were in position scattered around the three parks in Cook Street and thousands of visitors milling around them.
With COVID, the 2020 Flinders car show was cancelled which resulted in this year being bigger and better than ever. There was an air of excitement in the township.
I was advised by the organisers the car exhibits were more unique and interesting than previous years.
For the second year running the BMW Drivers Club Melbourne won the best car club display. The committee and office holders need to be congratulated.
To top off the day my friend in the Alfa Montreal won the car of the show prize.
