    A quartet of Carrera 3.0 Coupes prowling the streets of Melbourne Australia

    An informal cars and coffee in North Melbourne Australia took place as Melbourne come out of its 4th (yes you read that correctly) COVID lockdowns

    The C3 was a ROW car and approximately 120 came to Australia in 1976 and 1977.

    They are getting quite a following either as road cars of Group S Historic race cars. A number have been used as tarmac rally cars in Targa like events, but these are now being returned to road spec as they have come to the attention of enthusiasts.

    My car is the Oak Green over cork 77 in the foreground. Also present Talbot Yellow, Black and GP White
