In the 1960s Batman s ex-girlfriend
sold her giant car to an Australian.
It was delivered to the antipodes in
an extra-large shipping container and
ended up in Canberra.
The road-hogging 1959 Buick
Electra will be one of many attractions
at the Marques in the Park 2014 on
"It has quite a story behind it,
owner and event director Steve
Dascarolis said. "It was the car of
Adam West s former girlfriend.
Now in its 13th year, the event will
attract more than 600 vehicles from the
early 1900s to roll out for crowds
which often exceed 3000.
Mr Dascarolis said it was one of
Canberra s biggest annual car shows.
"It has been getting bigger and
bigger every year, he said. "More
people are getting to know about it.
"It is probably one of the largest
events of the year.
What makes Marques unique is
that it is free entry and as far as venues
go throughout the year this is
premiere. Other venues are often
compromised by dust.
John Knight Park in Belconnen
plays host each year where many
gleaming machines emerge from
garages across the ACT to line up at
Lake Ginninderra s shores.
"It has always been held here and it
is organised by the Council of ACT
Motor Clubs, Mr Dascarolis said.
He said it had become a big annual
get-together for Canberra motoring
clubs. There will be something for
everyone with veteran to vintage
vehicles along with antique machinery
and classic motorcycles.
High-end supercars such as
Lamborghinis, Porches and Ferraris
will take pride of place alongside
American muscle cars and yank tanks.
The Lions Club of Belconnen will
run a barbecue on the day while coffee
and cakes will be available. Live music
will also provide background

under way to find a location for a new
building in Manuka.

extraordinary general meeting on
October 22 and formally resolved to
wind-up and transfer its assets to

Reeks said the organisation would

Despite the merger, neither club
has a building.
The Canberra Service Club
building, next to Manuka Oval, was
burned down in April 2011.
The Canberra Club, founded in
1931, sold its Civic property earlier
this year to make way for an

up to the government to find a
