Which Nagari is this?

Apparently it resides in or near Ballina. If I had to make a rough guess I'd say it was B8/5 based on the colour, the wood rim steering wheel and the narrow scoop.

Look what Chris and Barry found in Tamborine, Qld.

A Bolwell truck.

Is this it Scott?

Award winning designs.


Check this one out.

History lesson.

This is a 1947 Nissan. It's all electric. Petrol was a bit scarce in Japan after the war.

Seems legit.

Finch's MG steering box conversion.

Uses donor Datsun boxes.
Popular among TA, TB, Tc owners...... and with good reason.

Who knows what this is?

Huge progress.

Coming to a race track near you.
I'm guessing these are the seats for it.

Hardly the same.

You know I'm a Lloyd fan.

But check this out.

Rack 'em and stack 'em.

Turn your 3-car garage into a 6-pack.

Unexpected fine weather

A nice weekend for a drive in the country and the odd pub visit, hey Alan? I've heard there's not many twisty bits in SW WA.

Chev's idea of a coupe utility.

These are factory items.

27th out of 28

Well, at least we weren't last.
This was the 6 hour relay race on Anzac weekend.
Not enough Bollies in the team I reckon.
We had 3 lined up but Bernie's new bell housing didn't arrive in time, John H ballsed up the paperwork and Pete M was a late scratching due to illness. We almost didn't have Chris' GT40 either with a drive shaft destroyed at the end of practice on the Saturday. Greg's GT40 to the rescue with a shaft from that and in true American soap opera style, got to the scroots just in the nick of time. So, it was up to our Clubbie collection plus one DRB GT40.

Some Bollies in the pits on race day.

So here is our team.......


So we plugged away all day in a positive manner, a well oiled team that included a large number of members in a variety of roles. We gained bonus laps and didn't give away too many penalty laps. The penalty for car 166 not doing the required number of laps must have been huge.

Anzac Day weekend.

 A nice little field of historic sporties. Mostly Aussies, Matich, Elfin, Rennmax, Norax, Asp, even the Thomson Special.
A little anecdote : All these old fellas with their Elfins (I  mean really old, even older than me) seem to have wives who sit alone in the director's chair, frowning in the rented garage and not speaking if you say hello. You'd think they'd at least bring their knitting.
