Tim Byrne and his cars

On Friday the 9th of March 2012, Club member, Tim Byrne spoke about his life long passion for motor cars  including a number of Buicks. Being a good story teller, Tim was able to recount the twisted paths leading to his various acquisitions and reluctant disposal ,in some instances.
Tim presently owns a very original 1938 Century Sedan and a 1940 Special Coupe.
He produced photographs of the cars he has owned ,including a magnificent 1934 Mc Laughlin Buick Roadster, being one of only two produced in right hand drive.
He also spoke about his replica HWM Jaguar, which he raced and which was used by Stirling Moss, on four occasions at the Grand Prix in Adelaide.
Thanks Tim for an entertaining talk.
