Report on a very special day.
The Southern Early’s Car Club had a very special day for the club run in May. Southern Early’s were contacted by a son of an 84 year old man. Apparently the father remembered fondly his ownership of a light blue FJ Holden car. As a birthday surprise, and celebration of their 60th wedding anniversary, members of the Southern Early’s arrived in convoy at the son’s home and met his father and mother. The smiles and surprised looks on both of their faces were a joy to see and some time was spent joking, talking and reminiscing about old times. Then we were off on a tour around the area for half an hour, making sure that he and his wife were in the last and best car of the convoy. That way they could look ahead and see as many FJ and FX cars as possible. On return, again we spent time talking and laughing next to the cars.
The spirit of the occasion was so happy that every one came away feeling that they had just participated in some thing that was very special.
