news, local news,

Finding vintage cars on the streets of Millthorpe is not that rare. Its main street has always been an attraction for car owners looking for a suitably aged spot for some photos. This Friday, the village will buzz with the sound of 120 pre-1931 vehicles of all shapes and sizes thanks to the Orange District Antique Motor Club’s fall tour. Rally manager and 1928 Hupmobile owner Peter Amos said the tour was so popular that finding sites large enough was part of the reason numbers were limited to 120. he declares. “We have in-state participants from Victoria in North Queensland and Sydney in Collarenebri.” ALSO MAKING NEWS: Part of the Fall Tour is just that, a long, leisurely tour around some of the most beautiful scenery in the county. “This year we will meet on Redmond Oval in Millthorpe on Friday from 9am and after coffee at the Golden Memories Museum we will make two trips to Newbridge,” he said. For drivers who are confident in their vehicles there is the long drive through Forest Reefs, Errowanbang, Mandurama, Neville, Barry, Moorilda and arriving in Newbridge for lunch. For those who think it’s a bit too long, the short route will pass directly through Blayney on their journey to Newbridge. After lunch, they’ll stop at the Anglican Parish Book Fair, where Adelaide Street will look like it’s entered a time warp. The lineup of cars that will take part includes two Rolls Royces, a 1905 De Dion Bouton and 118 other classic cars that will also take part in another tour on Saturday. All vehicles will congregate on Saturday from 8:30 to 9:30 a.m. at the Robin Hood Hotel in Orange before heading to Manildra via the Molong Recreation Ground.
