Sheparton Spring Nats

So anybody go? Have any pics?

I ended up hanging out down the main drag in town but missed the nats itself, was still fun watching most of the cars cruise by and a lot of other entrants on trailers. Saw a couple of nice Falcons, an XC sedan with full Cobra paint scheme (For sale too!) and a rather familiar coloured XB Coupe as mine. Also some nice Fairlanes doing the runs and a couple of XY GT's (or clones.)

I'd put up some pics but I cant seem to get them attached successfully on here.

Yeah the Cobra sedan was an eye catcher, the owner had a lot of chrome on it rather than the blackout options (Window and windscreen trim, even the NASA ducts.) The GS Coupe looked real sweet but I may be biased as it's the same colour as mine. Had a pretty modern interior, all in Ford Blue which wasn't my cup of tea but it looked like it had been done well.
