Shopping around for Newham CFA Tanker three? Unfortunately, even if the brigade captain were to have a vehicle all to himself for fire duties, this gorgeous 1937 yellow Rolls Royce just wouldn't do. It was lovely to look at as a group of Newham CFA members found when they were on duty at Hanging Rock on Sunday for the Macedon Ranges and District Motor Club's annual Picnic at Hanging Rock. The event was a big success, even more so than in previous years according to some people in the know. Hundreds of interesting vehicles, with the only stipulation that they must be more than 25 years old, were brought to the Rock to be displayed and admired by several thousand visitors who came through the gates.
