Coffee ‘n’ Chrome Port Adelaide – July 2018

Coffee ‘n’ Chrome Port Adelaide – July 2018

One of the regular Coffee & Chrome groups decided to try out a new venue, the streets of Port Adelaide, or “The Port”. The Port is one of Adelaide’s older areas, and is a mix of Industrial, Retail and Residential buildings. It’s mostly deserted on the weekends, but not last weekend, when it came to life with the sounds and sights of Coffee ‘n’ Chrome!!

Join me, and we’ll have a look at some of the highlights!

This beautiful 1939 Oldsmobile Tourer even had a Dickey Seat!

I think most white cars look like kitchen appliances, but it suits this Corvette!

Another really nice Hot Rod, a Chev this time. Simple and clean is really nice sometimes.

There were some really nice examples of Australia’s Holdens too, including this 1967 HR Premier. I had one of these when I was about 17.

And I thought this custom Harley well worthy of a few shots too – very nice!

This is another Australian Holden – one of the first, an FJ! They really did use them as Taxi’s back in the 50’s and 60’s.

A very pretty Holden HG Premier – they didn’t come with a bonnet hump like that, I can promise you!
