A little over a month away from our Melbourne edition of our Rolling 30 big bash, we still haven’t tired of seeing the amazing and varied machines you guys are bringing along.

Rolling 30 will take place on March 1 on the rolling hills of the Broadford Motorcycle Complex, and celebrates classics of all variety no matter what era or country of origin it’s from.

As long as it’s 30 years old, built 1990 or earlier, we want to see you there with your beloved classic!

It’ll be a big day out that where you can cruise the track in a non-competitive low-stress environment, meet the Unique Cars crew as well as countless other like-minded enthusiasts.

We’ll be keeping our eyes peeled for as many Reader Rides as possible, so don’t be afraid to come and say hi!

You can find more info on the Victorian event at our Frequently Asked Questions page, and find entry forms at Rolling30.com.au

Read on for a few more entrant spotlights; it’s just a taste of the wild mix of metal that have already signed up!

 

Peter’s 1977 Ford Falcon XC Hardtop

Peter’s XC Hardtop is certainly one of the most eye-catching entries that have slid across our desks.

Wearing Moffat Dealer Team war-paint in tribute to the iconic 1-2 finish at the 1977 Bathurst 1000, you won’t miss this one on track or in the pits!

Moffat and Bond’s XC is arguable the greatest Falcon racer of all time, with big backdoor-backing from Broadmeadows, the Moffat Ford Dealer’s XCs bested the Holden Dealer Team’s Torana L34s in the ATCC championship.

 

Shayne’s 1989 BMW E30

This Bavarian boxed-beauty will be there in attendance, flying the flag for German engineering of yore.

The E30-generation 3 Series is ubiquitous in classic car circles, but while it’s the ultimate M3 version that grabs headlines, the catalogue sedans and coupes have long been lauded as keen corner-carvers and for their even-keener proclivity to spin up the tacho thanks to their rev-happy four and six-pot powerplants.

Shayne’s example, however, piqued our interest when we noticed the engine displacement field on his entry form read 5,700CCs… We have our suspicions as to what’s underneath that reverse clamshell bonnet, but we’ll be sure to catch up with it on the day to properly see what’s what.

 

Darrell’s 1974 Datsun 260Z

The Datsun corner is looking to be a strong one, with Darrell’s gorgeous 260Z being the latest entrant amongst a growing fleet of 70s Dattos.

The Datsun 260Z took the original 240Z’s winning formula and platform and introduced a larger bored out 2565cc variation of Datsun’s much-loved L-series engine.

Darrell’s example looks to be an uncommon two-seater Japanese-delivered model, as Australia only offered the elongated 2+2 body – continuing up to 1978 meanwhile the US market gained the new fuel-injected 280Z from 1975.

 

Stay tuned as we continue to feature more of our eclectic entrants’ cars in the lead up to the Melbourne edition of Rolling 30. Have you entered yet? We want to see you there!
