The ad doesn’t mention a year, but the only year in which August 5th was a Sunday that makes sense is 1962.

    In 1970 I was on the USS America and returning to the US after our time in the Tonkin Gulf. I had met a bunch of car nuts when we were in Sydney on a previous adventure in 1968 and made arrangements to meet them againg. We had written back and forth and knew it was a race weekend. As such my pals and I got ourselves out to Warwick garm and attended the races and met up with our Aussie friends. We were in uniform and were treated like we were someone special. Had a wonderful time. I remember a Chevy El Camino that had it’s cargo area filled with ice and cold beer. I have lost track of the Australian frineds and only remember the name Leon Pedzik who had a very nice black 1955 Chevy with right hand drive and a built 327 engine. Great place, Warwick Farm.
