THIS YEAR’S annual Picnic at Hanging Rock car show returned to form in a big way for its 32nd running.

Perfect weather brought out the crowds, with some 3300 cars counted through the gates by lunchtime.

There was something for pretty much every taste out there, with a mix of American and Australian metal, European, British and a surprisingly strong show from the vintage car brigade.

Among the rarest was a Hurst Oldsmobile 455, believed to be the only one in the country, and a stunning 1956 Continental MkII. The Oldsmobile was our pick for our theoretical ‘Car of the Show’, while we’re hoping to catch the owner of the Continental for a story.

Meanwhile we’ve featured the Hurst Olds in Reader Rides on page 144 this issue (look for a bigger story in a future issue), plus a very nice Ford XB GT from the same event on page 146.

We’ve also published a massive 200-plus picture gallery online. Go to tradeuniquecars.com.au or try this link: tinyurl.com/y2ptnlsy
