American import.

Spotted on Goodwood Road going to a new home, a very nice Z with wire wheels and still with its Californian number plates.
So that's what you have to do to get one these days. Must admit, you couldn't buy this model here. It's a genuine 280Z. A few of the tarmac rally brigade enter 280Zs but they're RHD 260Zs with 2800cc motors. In Australia we went from the 260Z to the 280ZX.

Wagons and vans.

This is the only time, apparently, that Porsche have built a panel van on a sports chassis.

Golf carts have been around for a while then.


Another Bourne, another Rex.

This is Paul "Surfer" Bourne in the Caribbean.

Abandoned in Saudi.

For success building race cars...........

...........start with an Austin 7.
Bruce McLaren in Auckland.
One of Garrie Cooper's Austin 7s in Australia.

Another ute.

This time, a Borgward Isabella.
Made in Germany for export only. I wonder if Australia was on the list. Can't say I've seen one.

A few famous Aussie specials.

Can you name them?
And can you think of a common thread?

As I've said before.

Nothing is new.

Number plate for sale.

The late JW's B8/81 has been sold and the car has done what most non-Victorian Nagaris do these days - gone to Victoria. That leaves Jim's SA number plate, which he acquired after Ross Allen's Nagari went to Victoria, available to hang on one of the dwindling number of remaining Nagaris in this state.
All offers for the plates will be considered. Just phone Scott. Ph/fax 08 83381932.  Mobile 0428 827226.

Pit straight's come a long way.
