Vintage vehicles come to Bendigo with Wolseley Car Clubs of Australia national rally

DOZENS of vintage motor cars have come to central Victoria for the Wolseley Car Clubs of Australia’s 20th biennial national rally.

The cars were on display in Hargreaves Mall on Tuesday, their striking looks catching the eye of many a passer-by.

Among their number was a police car, a 1958 London traffic unit, complete with working bell.

The Wolseley company was founded in Sydney in 1887 as a shearing machine manufacturer, with the first car rolling off the production line nine years later in Birmingham, England.

The brand went on to become one of the most popular manufacturers of cars in the United Kingdom.

The clubs’ rally finishes up on Friday.
