Trip down memory road



GRAFTON residents in or around Prince Street on Tuesday evening may have been lucky enough to spy a piece of motoring royalty ? if they slowed down to take a look.

Five relics of a bygone era rolled into town as members of The Veteran Car Club of Great Britain made a pit stop during their way to Sydney.

The cars, all built prior to 1919, and their owners, all born much later, stopped in Grafton overnight for a break from the club's 75th anniversary rally.

And if you needed convincing of the prestige attached to these vehicles then you need look no further than the club's website. According to the website, none other than His Royal Highness, Prince Michael of Kent, has been a patron for more than 20 years.
