One of the lovely things about getting out and about with Lucie is the chances it has afforded me to visit places I wouldn’t normally have gone… I’ll have visitors come to town, or have some time free of a weekend and I can ping a friend and suggest a road trip to the Yarra Valley, or Mt Macedon, or Daylesford, each of which I did one time or another in 2017. One of the other nice things is finding small towns that love old cars, and Monbulk is one such town.
Every year, in the autumn, Monbulk hosts a car show to raise funds for the local Country Fire Authority (CFA) and other charities and there was an epic turn out. The Victorian Mini club sets up every year in front of the Police Station, brings donuts to the cops (who are we to balk at a stereotype) and this year took out the cup for the best display! Lucie got to sit for the first time with another of her kind, a Mk 2 (the green one) and there was a spectacular array of cars to view.
