I think not Mr Carps. As you know, I have been to Melbourne many times, even enjoy doing "Hook" turns. Being that I'm also an inquisitive prick and hate to just sit around in a hotel room, I normally explore the city that I am in.

On one of the many trips discovering your fair city (that didn't involve hillbilly music and beer), I took in a tour of the Exhibition Building. As well as a thing for old cars, I've also got a bit of a thing for old buildings. One of the things I learned was the first meeting of the Australian Parliament was held at the Exhibition Building.

They then built Canberra so that Choco wouldn't live in Melbourne.

Looking at the pic, you can see that it's a painting of the inside of the building. What did concern me though is the glass in front of the painting. I thought on old paintings, the glass was a bad idea. Condensation may form and damage the painting.

So there, I'm not just a pretty face. icon_razz.gif

Nice to know you've been paying attention. And yes, we do know yo're not a pretty face.

The frame is valued as part of the painting so it doesn't count. Having done the tour you should be very familiar with the next most valuable item that can be seen in the shot.

Regading the glass on the picture, there's plenty of air space behind it so I doubt condensation etc is an issue. And since the picture is where it's easily touched by grubby paws, I figure the glass provides more protection than anything else.

Probably those fancy curtains on the left.
We put really nice curtains in our lounge a while back, and they cost $6000, so given the size of those things I'd say thats the answer..........

Jo's car was there (painted) and Ron Carminito's "Black Beauty" 48 Ford Sedan fought it out for top place.
From memory Joe won top car but it was close.
I can remember Ian Shaw had his compleated chassis on display also.
There were about 32 cars in the show.

And Ron's Merc was the only car rasied completely off the ground with mirrors under it to show off the detailed and chromed drivetrain etc. I think that was it's first public appearance with the white striping on the body.

Wasn't the Mantzaris 'Rhapsody in Blue' roadster also in the running for top car, (which for those who don't know, is the car that Rodstop have recently unchannelled and turned into a contemporary highboy for it's latest owner, Mark Perry) as I recall, it was on the left of the hall near the curtain and displayed tilted on an angle with mirrors to show the undercarriage detail etc.

Yup, right in the middle of the main floor area by the look of my old box brownie B&W; photos. The second show was the first time I ever used colour film and boy was it expensive!

What is it with you old roadster blokes and THAT bloody number?

No... when I wore my STP T-shirt (that someone bought me for a present), a mate's girlfriend said it stood for...

So Totally Perfect

And another bit of useless trivia, the car missed the second show because it still wasn't finished but has been in every show since, until this year. But at least it was parked outside on Saturday, where it puked the entire contents of it's radiator on the ground in front of the fountain.

And yes, just as I have a pic of the nekkid chassis at show one and the finished car at show 3, plus many shots of it at subsequent shows, I also have one of the mess it made this year.

Aside from the front seat, engine trans, paint on the front fenders and grille shell, tyres, front axle, brakes, everything else on the car today is the same stuff it had when shown as a complete car for the first time. Hard to say which has held up better, the owner or the car, I've seen Datsfa puke once or twice too and can assure you all it's a lot worse than what came out of the car's radiator.

The question was, What's the second most VALUABLE thing in the photo.

And it would be the wooden steps as can be seen to the left of the shot and were the actual steps that the Royal dignitaries in the right foreground of the painting are standing on.
