A nice kit car.

The Formosa 120 GR.
My question is - why do they put Ferrari badges on these cars?

Vain attempts to build a clubman.

You can't make a silk purse out of a sow's ear.

The Austin 1800.

Who would've thought - 5 white ones for a wedding.
And an 1800 camper or two.

Need a replacement front guard?

A wheelie bin to the rescue.

New Clemente owners.

Ray and Jenny.

This cropped up on Facebook today.

A combined Sports Sedan/ Production Sportscar race at Oran Park with Ross Bond worrying the life out of Jim Richards in Harrop's very potent EH.
Talking about Ross Bond, did you know he bought and raced the Brock A30?
and here's a shot from Wanneroo to get the Sandgropers talking.

The very latest AMC.

Out now is Australian Muscle Car featuring a 2 page spread on Vic's Nagari.
Vic's pretty happy with it. I would be too.

A very significant Pellandini.

Old No.1. It's on a space frame unlike the others which were fibreglass monocoques like the first Elites) with front and rear sub-frames.

The first and original Pellandini (South Australia) could be yours to own! 

This was my (late) fathers pride and joy. This is looking to be a regrettable sale at this stage. Unfortunately I just don’t have the storage, money or time to put into this amazing piece of kit car history right now 😢 Lucky for it’s new owner it is being stored and looked after for the mean time until you can claim her as your own 😍 

Serious offers considered 🤔 Registration papers included. Please PM me. 

Space Frame Chassis unlike other Pellandini’s, she was in the process of restoration when my father passed. I know it starts. Brand new tyres ($1500 - not driven on them once) and rims ($3000).

To say I am sad about this is an understatement as my first car was a Mini Cooper I built with him and this was always a dream of mine to own - Please be respectful with offers.................Bel.

P.S. Looks like it's sold


Would it be faster if the body was on backwards?

Favourite 3-wheelers no. 38.

The Bond Bug.
Nagari tail lights?

Now that's a windscreen!

I've been following the scratch build of a LeMans Bentley. Recently, the custom made windscreen has gone in.

A happy Bolly Christmas.

This was drawn by young James Wells  Clever little bugger.

Here's Duane's greeting....
.....and here's one from my friends in the Borgward group.

The good old A-frame.

This is how you used to transport your race car.
That's how I used to transport my mud plugger. You were towing an unregistered and unroadworthy vehicle but it didn't matter because it was attached to a car that was. The same applied to a vehicle on a tow rope. Then it got outlawed so the next step was the trailer.
If you were an enthusiast for a particular vehicle model then it was inevitable that your tow car was the same make. So that ended up being a problem too when the towing vehicle had to be heavier than what was being towed.

A history in wheels.
