It is very rare for any international motoring organisation to recognise or even acknowledge Australia in any sense or form. However, the prestigious American publisher “Hemmings” has published a post on its daily blog regarding the winner of the most recent Australian International Concours d’Elegance.
The winning vehicle is a 1969 HT Monaro GTS. It is a truly deserving winner and I congratulate Re-creation Automotive the people responsible for the Monaro’s amazing restoration.
Owned by Mr Terry Smart, the white Monaro GTS beat a field of 85 cars and motorcycles to take the title of Motorclassica’s ‘Best of Show’ to win the premier Australian International Concours d’Elegance title, along with the ‘Restoration of the Year’ trophy for its restorers, Re-creation Automotive.
Smart’s Monaro scored a perfect 100 points from the hugely-experienced Motorclassica Concours d’Elegance judging panel.
“In terms of quality, Terry’s Monaro GTS, valued in the vicinity of $300,000, is literally faultless and as such a deserving winner.
As always, I would ask if you can, please donate to CFWA.
