Here’s a tiny sample of some venerable old automobiles, at the Herberton Historic Village.
And, here is one fully restored model. I wonder how many hours of love and labour went into this?

Love old cars! 🙂
You would love this open air museum, Michael.
I’m with Darlene, I really like the pictures of ones which are ‘weathered’ – I’ve not seen ones like that before, only the odd restored one.
A lot of the old equipment, such as tractors, steam engines, etc., were in the same condition as some of these old cars, Caroline. They have been carefully cleaned and coated with oil, and they look so good. I’ll post some of those old beauties one day. I just can’t get over the love and attention that has been given to this outdoor museum. It would all have been volunteer work.
The couple who bought the museum and brought it to this high standard are from interstate, their children though they were quite mad, and should have been sitting down and enjoying their retirement. Now the children are as devoted to the task as the parents.
Good to see some being fully restored. I hope someone will do the same for me one day.
I hope they’ll have the spare parts available for you, Andrew. 🙂
Wonderful collection! The last photo is my favorite. Thank You showing these vintage cars.
It’s such a wonderful museum.
It almost looks like you can take that red 1924 Dodge for a “tour”!
Love red cars almost as much as I love red shoes.
The Dodge is registered, but one would be reluctant to drive her too much.
I’m sure the owner would not be happy is someone wanted to take if for a joy ride.
How cool that some are left as they were found.

What the heck, Darlene. I was sure I had answered your comment.
I reckon it would be difficult (and costly) to find the bits and pieces for some of those old gals.
