A Grade Action by bigshotdan A Grade Action by bigshotdan
A little 'trip interlude' here. I still have countless thousands of images to go through from my month abroad but yesterday took me to Eastern Creek for day one action of the Muscle Car Masters.

Here's a step back in time to, in my opinion, the best tin top action; the Group A days. Two of the main protagonists of that era, the Nissan Skyline R31 and the Holden VL Commodore, featured here in near-original liveries. Don't they look a million bucks, even some 17 years down the track...?

Should bloody well hope so! :P

Yeah, MCM is a brilliant event. Shall we mark you down as an attendee for this year? *Craig-Miller and I are absolutely set on it, and I'm sure there'd be a few others who would love to go...

Hehe... yeah, those were the days. I really miss the 'good old days' of Group A racing...

I really like the composition. The side shots nicely frame the middle shot. Earned a :+fav: from me!

That'd be because it's rare to see anything other than V8s! And it's for that reason I sorely miss the Group A days. So many manufacturers, different classes competing... it's so dull now by comparison...

Yes indeed. Who could forget him flinging the old VL around in the wet in '87? Truly incredible car control (mind you, Seto did a pretty good job in the Skyline earlier in the race)...
