    Made the VW Beetle famous in Australia, won all 3 yrs it was held, notably won by Eddie Perkins(Larry's father) in 56 and 58 in a 1200 VW Beetle.

    Funnily enough my mother was part of the RedX rally in 1953/54, she relayed messages from Wave Hill to Sydney for the Journalists covering the event, Obo George was her callsign

    Harvester showroom, Katanning. That's first time I've seen a harvester inside a showroom.

    I rode it before they closed it. It was brilliant. Locked gates both ends now and a surveillance camera sign up.
