Sunday 14th September (during the Wildflower Festival) 9am-4pm. On the Bindoon town oval Great Northern Hwy

The Bindoon & District Historical Museum are conducting their annual Vintage Vehicle Day at the Bindoon oval on Sunday 14th September 2014 commencing at 9:00am through to 3:00pm. Entry is free however a gold coin donation will assist in providing services.

Following our successful inaugural event last year we are expecting in the vicinity of 150 Vintage vehicles to participate this year. We have been fortunate with gaining fantastic support and sponsorship from local and surrounding businesses which has enabled us to provide free rides to children on the Lions train and bouncy castle and 100 free icecreams throughout the day.

There will be entertainment and food vans together with local markets and of course the Wildflower and Art show’s will be in full swing.

At the Brockman Centre the Museum will be open and the Craft shop will be “Airing the Quilts” and the Men’s Shed will have a sausage sizzle to celebrate the construction of their new building under construction.

One of the iconic vehicles to be on display this year is the Studebaker. The make which dates way back to 1852 when the Studebaker brothers started making wagons in South Bend, Indiana, for the Californian gold rush. They supplied wagons to the US army and the wagon trains heading out west for
new land. By 1875 Studebaker was the largest vehicle builder in the world and in 1902 they built their first electric cars with their first gasoline cars following in 1904.

The WA Studebaker Club are one of many car clubs to attend the display this year. The Bindoon Historical Society will offer prizes for best restoration, most original, and most popular vehicles.
