Classic Adelaide Rally - some pics

I was lucky enough to go and see the Classic Adelaide Rally today so I took some pics. The Rally is held in the Adelaide Hills and is open to Classic cars built up to a certain year. There were RS2000 Escorts, XW/XY GT's and GTHO's, Mustangs, Cortinas, Galaxies, GT40s as well as heaps of Porches, Alfas, Beemers, Datsun 240z's, Mercedes as well as others. I think there were 200 odd cars entered this year. Here are a few pictures I took.

They had a short bit of footage of the Falcon GT on the news last night, it sounded like a real beast. Thanks for showing the pics.

Go the Esky!! What would a classic rally be without a few Escorts in there? Nice shot too, and to be second behind a Porche is a bloody awesome effort.

Indeed it certainly is a fantastic effort, considering what some of the other entrants were driving!
