Sir Alec Issigonis’ masterpiece - the Mini! Manufactured by BMC Australia and curiously marketed as the Morris 850, without any reference to it being a ‘Mini’ 🇬🇧 #morrismini850 #morrismini #bmcmini #bmc #mini850 #mini #britishcar #britishcars #australianmade #motorclassica2019

Wonderfully original Bedford PC Ute which still appears to be used as a daily driver. I expect the chassis would have been imported from the UK and it was bodied locally by Holden 🇬🇧 #carspotting #bedfordute #bedford #ute #holden #gmbedford #generalmotors #commercialvehicle #classiccar #britishcar #australianmade

With better build quality and reliability this could have been a genuine BMW competitor - Triumph 2500 MK II TC 🇬🇧 #carspotting #triumph2500tc #triumph2500 #triumph #ami #britishcar #australianmade

Peugeot 505 Executive - the 505 was the last of the French brand’s models assembled in Australia by arch-rival Renault who had also assembled the 404 and 504 for Peugeot locally 🇫🇷 #carspotting #peugeot505 #peugeot #renaultaustralia #frenchcar #australianmade

First generation Mercedes-Benz W116 Series S-Class.

The W123 Series Benz are almost indestructible - “Engineered like no other car” according to the advertising and built regardless of cost they’re still a common sight 🇩🇪 #carspotting #mercedesbenzw123 #mercedesbenz240d #mercedesbenz #w123 #240d #diesel #germancar #germancars

Morrie 1000 heading out for a morning cruise along the beach front - surprised to see so many classics out and about up here (though no Italian cars - I suspect the humidity has seen to that ...) 🇬🇧 #carspotting #morrisminor1000 #morrisminor #morris #bmc #britishcars #britishcar #australianbuilt

It appears 90% of all the VW Kombis ever sold in Australia are still providing reliable service in Queensland - these are just a few we’ve seen in the first couple of days on holiday 🇩🇪 #carspotting #vwkombi #vwkombivan #vwtransporter #vwbus #volkswagenkombi #volkswagenkombivan #volkswagentransporter #vwtype2 #volkswagentype2 #vwcamper #vwcampervan #volkswagencamper

It’s Superbug! The legendary VW Beetle was assembled in Australia from 1954 through until 1960 and then fully produced using up to 95% of locally manufactured parts through until 1968 when assembly of CKD kits recommenced through until 1976. At one point was Australia’s third best selling car 🇩🇪 #volkswagenbeetle #vwbeetle #vwsuperbeetle #vwsuperbug #volkswagen #vw #vwmaggiolino #volkswagenmaggiolino #vwkafer #volkswagenkafer #vw1302 #volkswagen1302

The 48-215 was the very first Holden motor car and General Motors first fully Australian built car. A true Aussie icon - affectionately known as a ‘humpie’ and produced from 1948 to 1953, becoming market leader from 1950 🇦🇺 #fxholden #holden48215 #holden #gmh #generalmotorsholden #generalmotors #australiancars #australiancar #australianicon

🎂 Today marks 49 years since Cinquecento Blu first hit the streets of Sydney. Sold new by Col Crawford Fiat in Brookvale on 19 December 1970, he was clearly cherished by his two previous owners and remains in mostly original and unrestored condition. He’s never been unregistered and still retains his original registration plates. Looking forward to many more years of happy motoring with our Bambino 🇮🇹 #mycar #fiat500f #fiat500 #fiatbambino #fiatcinquecento #cinquino #fiat #thehappycar #italiancar #italiancars
