Government House Gate, car

This vintage car is parked outside the Government House Gate at the Royal Botanic Gardens. This 1930 Buick seven-seater sedan was being used as a wedding car, bringing the occupants here to this picturesque location to have their wedding.

  3. Amazing. You should link this up to this weeks theme on "Friday My Town Shoot Out" group blog, which is 'Entrances'. You can find the link on my blog. This fits the theme perfectly. And that car is so luxurious.

  9. You don't see cars like that around here. I was wondering why the white ribbon was on the car. Yes, this is a way to dress up any entrance.

  10. Welcome to FSO, hope to see you again. We don't have a contributor from Oz but two from NZ. Can't have that, can we? That is a very grand entrance befitting such a grande old lady.

  11. What a nice clean shot. Love it. I got to ride on one of those once :) I have to say they make better suspension these days - ouch.

  12. I haven't seen a car with those white ribbons in years. I'd totally forgotten. Had them on our car 54 years ago -- but not such a snazzy car as this one.
