THE POWDER BLUE CLUB - by Rick Fletcher TR Register Australia
The photo above is a CHALLENGE - it was taken at Port Macquarie (NSW) in 2007
- does anybody else have a photo of more Powder Blue cars in a line-up? WELL YES!!
We broke our own record at the Canberra Concours in 2014 with 10 cars - looks like OZ is the only place in the world with lots of Powder Blue TRs.
This page is devoted to that rare breed of TR - the Powder Blue Sidescreen TR
So here are some from around the world with a few words from their owners.
PS - drop me an e-mail and pic if you want to join - Rick Fletcher (JPEGs preferred)
