For as long as we can remember, Veteran, Vintage and Classic cars have put on a show in the heart of Melbourne on Australia Day. This year’s RACV Australia Day Picnic and Federation Vehicle Display at Kings Domain featured some mouth watering machinery. We were there and captured a few of our favourites.

First up one of the cleanest Alfetta’s we’ve laid our eyes on. The restoration of this example was first class. Its sharp angular Giorgetto Giugiaro design has really come of age. These will rise in value very quickly.

Rare and quirky. The Borgward Isabella was produced from 1954. The Isabella would become Borgward’s most popular model, remaining in production for the life of the German company.

This Aston Martin DB5 was a unsurprisingly a crowd favourite. Produced from late 1965 to early 1971. Interestingly, the DB6 had the longest production run up to that date of any Aston Martin model.

While the DB5 to this day remains the more collectable and more valuable, the DB6 featured improved performance, aerodynamics and practicality over its predecessor.
