Some dull old rubbish by comparison, I shouldn't like that Ferrari replica half as much as I do.. IMG_20190409_122437.jpg
This hasn't moved in a long time.
IMG_20190409_122130.jpg
Ditto. There were four of these and a 100E but the guy seems to be cutting down.

Nice day to give the Escort some love.
IMG_20190410_133100.jpg
Now I know this is a shit photo so you'll just have to believe me that this is a Lagonda 3-litre. It's not evident here but it's sitting nose-up so I suspect it's been engine-bummed for an Aston of some sort leaving essentially a worthless decaying carcass. Call me a cynic if you want but I reckon the next time this moves it'll be Pinto or Cologne-powered.
IMG_20190409_144046.jpg
And to finish, I don't really like convertibles or white cars in general. But it's a fine example of how slotmags make many things better.

The Fiat is a recent arrival up the road from me, it means they have to park their Daf 33 on the street. They ought to be on here, really.

Here is something a bit special, a Mercedes Benz 450SEL Estate.

Here is my rubbish photo:

b36b62d1672664a22c222ff656d0ba9a.jpg

And some library pictures from the web:

110a999c7cf0fb069fcc8aeaa0001e80.jpg

cb23ac77e24669513682810121ccb8f0.jpg

I had a quick chat with the owner, it is a Crayford conversion using the arse end of a Ford Granada. He has put quite a bit of work into it to get it back on the road, but it is majority original.

Not the sort of thing you would expect to find on a quiet residential street in Nowra, I was only there to use the post box!

Interesting 'repair' . I can see both Philips and slotted self tappers and small bolts, or they could be those bolt headed self tappers. Makes you wonder what's underneath.

Went to the Great Central Railway today, for a diesel gala. Importantly, nothing to do with classic cars.

 

These were in the carpark as I arrived. The Cavalier especially is quite a strong look for a daily driver! Had a police radio and radio handset installed too, although it didn't look like an original police car (surely they were using Senators, not Cav SRIs)

Can only imagine how that conversation in a dealer went.

"... and a purple interior please"
"Certainly, how about black trim with the centre part of the seat in purple?"
"No, all of it."
"All of it, Sir?"
"Everything"
"Dashboard?"
"Purple."
"Carpet?"
"Purple"
"Knob"
"Purple"
"That last one was an observation, sir"
