Easter weekend means Leyland P76 car show time. The ANOCSC crew hit the road to catch these cars in all their glory…
Apparently there was a Mustang show on as well – but everyone’s seen Mustangs before.

“Anything but average” the Leyland P76. It won wheels car of the year 1973. Under 20,000 were produced. You could fit a 44 gallon drum in the boot. Last produced in NZ in 1975.
This one has mag wheels and could be the best Leyland P76 in Australia.
