Cessnock in 1973

Here is Cessnock in 1973. On my first trip to New South Wales in 1971 we went to a meeting there on the Tuesday night stayed at the pub. Went up on the train very picturesque it looked the same as it does in these photos.

Jeff Collerson – Great track. Was there one night in my old Holden Torana after the last had a flat tyre & no jack. Saw Paul Cauchi last trainer still there. He had his punter Ringo with him who said you don’t need a jack for a Torana. Ringo lifted my car up in the air while I changed the tyre. He said :”if you had a Mercedes it might have tested me”
