WELCOME to the 2020 Virtual Nationals. Post pics featuring you, the family, the car. Tell us what you've been up to this year, especially in 'lock down'. What you're looking forward to, who you're hoping to 'see' here.

ZOOM meeting Friday night 8.30pm EST, 8pm AustCT, 6.30pm WA. Only 30 minutes, BYO refreshments! Family welcome, as always.

VIDEOS can be posted on the PRIVATE & HIDDEN group Facebook page, but you'll need to identify yourself to Julie - phone or email isuzuccaofficial@gmail.com 0414 094 567 if you have any difficulty with that bit. https://www.facebook.com/groups/3335007016579481

It's a poor substitute for the real thing, but the best we can do for now and we hope to see some enthusiasts who wouldn't normally be able to get to Nationals.

This message & post from Lewis Bolton last Sunday: Well folks. Today I would have been setting off on a trip to Hahndorf SA for our Isuzu Nationals next weekend but it’s postponed until next year now.

So in the spirit of the nationals I thought I would take Donna and Lincoln for a brunch outing at a great little cafe in Beenleigh called Cafe Edge. It’s doggy friendly too!

Gerry Mann has sent these pics along. Gerry hasn't been able to get to Nationals for a few years, but is often out & about with his gorgeous Bellett GTs. This was a recent wedding where his cars were featured.

I was supposed to have this finished by the Nationals, lucky for me they were delayed a bit. It's been a long road from the original car, then the shell donated by Farmer Matt (eternal thanks!) Then all the work along the way!

Happy memeories of our one race during the Covid days....incidentally the water stain on the tarmac left, is from Rolie's split hose and the oil stain on the right is Simon's oily Alfa!!! Every patch tells a story.

here a few Photos

1: Bay to Birdwood line up of my Wasp and Luv

2: All Japan Day line up of utes

2 Tassie Nats Show and Shine

The one thing I miss most about the Nats is the people! Which was re-enforced at last nights zoom meeting.
The Bellett/Isuzu family are an awesome group!

Great to hear from PomBellett and what a wonderful group shot! The schedule of the Zoom meeting was obviously confusing but those that made it seemed to be enjoying themselves - nobody left early! We'll schedule another one.
I had not seen that wonderful pic from Tassie Nationals - one for the collection! Is there a 'people' group shot?

Sat at the end of my street watching some of the Bay to Birdwood cars this morning. The good thing about that is I have exactly one year to have a bellett ready for the next one, realistically was never going to get close to being on the road for this years Nats.

Great day in Bay to Birdwood

Got there early for an easy drive up the hill with no congestion

Great to meet Bellett people at the start

I was on my way down as they were coming up

This post copies (with permission) from Dave Carey's post to the Facebook page:
We had a great day at the Bay to Birdwood. My girlfriend Katie drove Stella in 'the brown car' while I drove Joseph in the Buick Opel by Isuzu. Event was a lot different this year thanks to COVIDsafe measures, but still a really wonderful day out; probably the best I've had in a couple of years. Missed seeing all you other guys, but onwards and upwards for next year!
We had my Bellett sedan, George 'Flying's GT and a rare 1969 GT owned by Henry Nowak, along with Susie Clayton
's rare 1966.5 column shift sedan in it's first appearance on the road in 17 years! Didn't get pics of the GTs unfortunately.
Other Isuzu related vehicles include Caroline Liebich
's very tidy RB Gemini, my Japanese-built Buick Opel by Isuzu and a mint TD Gemini coupe entered in the concours d'elegance, owned by Gemini legend Dennis Mobbs.
