Melbourne Daily Photo
Hello, I created this blog because Melbourne is my city and I want people to see what a beautiful place it is. So come with me on a journey of discovery as we traverse the dining precincts, the culture, the laneways and hidden gems that make Melbourne marvellous.

Imagine tootling along country roads in this beautiful old Caddy, and stopping at some shady spot near a lake and sipping champagne...Ah this is the stuff dreams are made off!
Called "Lady Luck", and one of a pair, she was the envy of many an eye.
The first car I drove (after obtaining my licence) was a red car - but my car was not a "she". It was a genteman car which I called Rufus. A Datsun 1000 - 4 on the floor, no air con, 2 door, and it only cost $2 a week to fill the petrol tank. Petrol was only 20 cents a gallon. How times - and prices - have changed. If you buy a car, get a red one. Red always goes faster!
Today's Quote: It takes 8,460 bolts to assemble an automobile, and one nut to scatter it all over the road.
