    Yes Mark,
    Classic cars and BBQs go hand in hand here in Australia.
    If it were not for cars like Mercedes SLs and Vintage 911's we would be forced to hand-carry the Chardonnay, SSB and Cab Sav to the BBQs which would be far to heavy. Australia is a big place.

    have a fabulous weekend
    Jeff
