*What is a Narrywoolan?

The Dhauwurd Wurrung word for

“Home of the Black Cockatoo.”

Narrywoolan* is a small portal into my personal interest in a few things.

     - Lancia Aprilia - 1070.  Tales and adventures with the little blue car I bought in 2006.

     - Lancia Aprilia. The wonderful Italian masterpiece created by one of the all time great automotive engineers, Vincenzo Lancia.

     - ALR. Events of the Australian Lancia Register.

     - Retrospective.  A look back at places and people from my recent & distant past.

     - Motor Racing.  Some ordinary photos from various meetings over the years.
