   Muscle on the Mountain - Sunday 5th July 2015
   Maleny Show Ground - Sunshine Coast Hinterland

 

 


Mussel On The Mountain, Maleny 2015

An impromptu decision lead to six Corvettes attending the Mussel On The Mountain Show and Shine at Maleny in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland.

Leaving home in the dark and meeting for a 7.00am departure from Caltex Carseldine was Bryan in his 66 Coupe, Aaron in his 68 Convertible (with roof down at 10 degrees) Ian in his recently acquired 87 Convertible, John & Sue in their 90ish Coupe and Chris in his 90ish Coupe. We picked up Graham in his 63 Convertible at BP Burpengary and headed off down the highway and a sensational winters morning.

A straightforward run amongst numerous other mussel cars heading in the same direction past the Glass House Mountains, Beerwah, Landsborough and onto Maleny where about a kilometre out from the Showgrounds we ran into the queue waiting to enter the showgrounds. We arrived around 8.30am after a 15-minute slow crawl in the queue to get in. Not sure how many cars were there but the show grounds were full by 10am and it took all morning to walk around all the cars.

Left the Maleny show grounds about 12 midday and headed home via the inland route, Booroobin, Stanmore, Woodford, D’Aguilar and up the range to Mount Mee for lunch at Birches Restaurant which was very busy with many who were out and about on such a glorious day.

Headed down the range to Dayboro for coffee cake and some fuel before saying farewell and heading back to the big smoke.

All in all this is a great car event that deserves to make the Queensland Corvette Club calendar every year.
